My name is Joe Cardillo & I am available for weddings and corporate/private events and can provide any of the following options:
- Acoustic guitar and vocals
- Live looping one man band (vocals, guitar, sax, percussion) all performed live in the spot with no pre-recorded tracks
- Saxophone with backing tracks
- DJ and wireless roaming sax at the same time
I have years of experience playing over 2,000 shows of these types. I have an extensive setlist of over 800 cover songs and you can customize your musical playlist for your event; including but not limited to Jazz, Adult Alternative, Rock, Blues, Country, Pop, R&B, Top 40 and more. I also perform weekly in the SoCal region, and can be heard, or auditioned "live" at your request.
I have top of the line PA systems (have 3 different PA setups if needed for different zones/rooms), dance lights, uplighting, wireless handheld mics, and clip on/lapel mics. I pay close attention to details and can work with you and/or your coordinator to make it a fun smooth event. For DJ/Emcee and live music services, I am extremely comfortable with any/all genres, great at reading the crowd and can either provide a nice gentle blanket of sound to set the mood or keep it upbeat and energetic!
I started playing music 3rd grade & now play guitar, sing and play 12 other instruments as well as DJ. I have a degree in Music Performance from College of the Holy Cross and have toured all around the country playing in almost every state. I've opened up for International Acts such as Sister Hazel, Everclear, Donavon Frankenreiter, Dispatch, Eric Martin (Mr. Big), Phil Solem (The Rembrandts). I have multiple music endorsements, and have played countless corporate events including Kaiser Permanente, Intuit, HG Fenton, Lockheed Martin, Booking.com, The San Diego Gulls, Reef, San Diego Charitable Foundation, etc. Music has always been a passion of mine and I am so grateful to have always been a full time self-employed musician! I love to create musical experiences with people and would be honored to play for you!
