Joanne started singing when she was 6 years old. She took the stage in small group performances, choirs, and lead roles in musicals. After college, her life took a different turn and her musical endeavors were put on hold. After years of missing music in her life (and years of her husband pleading with her to start singing again), Joanne returned to the music world to share with others her love of singing and performing once again. Starting Acoustic Soul with friend and guitar player, Jason Mento* was the perfect fit, as Joanne dusted off her guitar & stepped right back on stage, without missing a beat.Joanne's rapport, easy-going personality and musical choices have wide appeal, and there is no denying that Joanne was born to sing!
When you look up “fun” in the dictionary, you’ll see a picture of Big Todd. His effervescent personality brightens any room. Add to that his musical skills and ability to lock into a groove, and you have an instant party. Big Todd is no stranger to the stage. He started playing drums when he was 16 years old and he has years of onstage entertainment experience not limited to his drum kit. He did take a hiatus from drumming for a number of years...but we're sure glad he decided to come back to it! When he’s not sitting behind a drum set and singing harmonies, you might see him DJ’ing or hosting other events. Click here to check it out. You can’t help but be entertained wherever you find him.
