Joe Bourne Vocalist- Voted Best Local Entertainer by Tucson Lifestyle magazine readers.
My mission statement is: "To lift the spirits of those who I have the privilege of entertaining and to have an abundance of fun while doing so."
Whether it's a swinging rendition of the fun song Goody Goody, Oscar Brown's philosophical "Dhat Dher" the romantic ballad of Earl Garner's "Misty", or a special tribute to the great Nat King Cole, Joe, who has been influenced by the likes of Lou Rawls, Billy Eckstine, Arthur Prysok, and Nat King Cole always seems to capture the audience with his on style and warm mellifluous light baritone, voice and his dynamic showmanship.
After 25 years of Europe being his home base, Joe has relocated his base of operations to sunny Tucson, Arizona. He continues to deliver his talents to European shores while he answers the call for his special brand of vocal entertainment throughout other parts of the globe.

Dave Perry President / CEO Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce writes:
Joe and his Cream of the Crop Band performed a show for our
scholarship fund-raiser in May. They were terrific.
Exceptional musicians performed an array of music styles, from
jazz to Al Jarreau, with country, Motown and pop in the mix.
Joe's versatility extends to all genre.
They got the crowd dancing. Everyone, without exception,
enjoyed the evening and the music.
I'd highly recommend Joe for your entertainment needs. Please
feel free to contact us for more information.

Thank you and your excellent band for your “Motown and other Soul Gems of that Era”
show last night at St. Philip's Plaza. This was the highlight of our fall series and a money
maker for Tucson Jazz Society.
It was fun watching the crowd, their interaction with the familiar tunes, the toe tapping
and a few dancers. I noticed the restaurant patio was packed when you started, and
everybody stayed through the entire show. A trip down memory lane left the audience
happy and cheering.
It's always a pleasure working with you due to your professionalism, high quality of
music and crowd interaction. We know we can always count on you to deliver a wellattended,
top notch show. Thanks again.
Susan Classen Managing Director / Invisible Theatre Writes:
Thank you for your stellar participation in our Sizzling Summer Sounds Cabaret
Series at the Arizona Inn. Your REMEMBERING LOU RAWLS was a huge hit.
The audience was mesmerized by your performance. What a singularly rare
privilege it is to work with you. You are a true professional in every way.
I look forward to working with you again. Please let me know if there is ever
anything I can do to help facilitate the entire world knowing about the
extraordinary Joe Bourne!

A heartfelt thanks to you for your stellar performances here in April, Not only did we sell out all four nights but, our patrons were overjoyed with the concert! I love it when a plan comes together!
In addition to your very fine interpretation of the music of Nat King Cole, the audience especially enjoyed the stories about him. I didn't realize you were a student of his life! It added a great deal to the evening, as did the incredible musicianship of your trio. What a terrific concert!
Thanks again for your talent, your flexibility and your extreme professionalism.
