About
Joe Monahan has been pleasing audiences in the Chicago area for over twenty years. As a solo performer he can create a musical atmosphere to please any crowd. His versatility and impressive variety of song selection will suit any event. Whether your having a Birthday Party, Anniversary, Wedding, or just a gathering of friends, Joe will make sure the music fits the occasion. Requests are always welcome! Here's what past clients have to say:


Joe played for our son's Rehearsal Dinner. Our new daughter-in-law comes from strong Irish roots. We thought it would be fun to have him entertaining tthe families and wedding party. We kept it a secret, so they were surprised when they walked in to Joe and his guitar. Joe offered to and came with, a list of songs that were handed out to the tables for requests. He also did some non-vocals in the beginning while people were eating appetizers and visiting. Our son's new in-laws were thrilled. When we looked back at the evening, without Joe, it would have been just another dinner. He really set a festive mood that continued on through the rest of the wedding celebration. Joe was great at communicating with us and getting back to us promptly with answers to our questions. We had no reservations about him or his talents, sight unseen and unheard. We think this was largely due to our converstions we had with him, over the phone and by email. Thanks again Joe for a great time.

I had a lot going on with my husband's surprise 40th birthday, and was relieved at how easy it was to organize the Irish music. Joe was great with email, and answered every question I had. At the birthday party, they were fantastic - everyone commented on the wide range of songs being played, and how great it sounded. Plus, when we needed the Irish touch, they were perfect. I asked for a special request for my husband, and they were so ready to accommodate my needs. I was really impressed - plus so thankful they helped make the night memorable.
