“Joe is a young man with and old soul and a classic voice. He is a great new talent with a wonderful sense of humor to boot. And don’t forget, he plays a hell of a trumpet!”
“Joe has an innate ability to connect with an audience. His singing and trumpet playing are world class. Throw in his 16 Piece Big Band and you have something very special!”
“I love listening to Joe perform because he has a marvelous connection with the music he plays and sings. His innate understanding of interpreting classics is something that you can’t learn, it’s natural. He is a great musician!”
Verify with the venue, as we occasionally have a night off from recurring gigs.

“… Joe Gransden is one of those rare musicians that has it all. He is an incredible instrumentalist with the technique of a virtuoso. His imagination let’s him improvise as we’ll as anyone on the planet and yet he retains a sense of melody that let’s listeners of all musical tastes enjoy his wonderful playing. That should be enough, but for Joe, its just the beginning. Add to this a beautiful singing voice that let’s him do all of the above with words!!! As I said, Joe really does have it all!”
” Joe is an extraordinary musician and on top of that, a wonderful person and that ain’t no lie. With Joe singin’ and the band swingin’ It’s a Beautiful Thing!”
