Dear Agency, Artistic Director, General Manager, Food & Beverage, I'm Joe from Italy (singer & pianist) and I'm interested in considering new opportunities.

So I would be most grateful if you took into consideration for your needs.

I singing and I play piano (acoustic/digital) with the support of bases, bases & piano, only piano & voice or just piano for background music.

I can play in all situations (Italian and international songs), by the “background music” to “party nights”, sitting at the piano or standing with a more aggressive setting ...

I have many year experience in Hotels, Cruise Ships (Ocean & River), “Restaurants with Music", Piano & Lounge Bar …

Lounge music, Pop, Rock, Country, Latin, Dance, Jazz & Blues.

Also with the Duo "The Stardust" (Joe & Valerio) or with the Duo "The Stars Music Duo" (Joe & Dante) or in Trio together, besides the vast international repertoire, also the excellent "Jazz & Blues"


I started to play music in 1973 and it was love at first sight.

I had a lot of different experiences playing in many beat bands, (at that time i played the bass guitar) and also, for many other years I had a participation in a local group of popular music (called “I Musicanti del Borgo”).

In 1980 I started to compose songs by myself (lyrics and music) and had a participation in some national competions for songwriters.

In 1986 I had a good artistic chance but for a personal reason (wedding), I couldn't attend; but in the following period I had a lot of good affirmations because some of my songs was listened to some famous Italian artists.

With karaoke upcoming I had a lot of new opportunities in live exhibitions (“Piano Bar”, Lounges, Casinos, Hotels, Restaurant with Music, live concert ...) (single or band), triyng to improve my artistic purpose and also some technical details and also triyng to privilege my collaboration with some professional musicians.
