Joe Bourne Joe Bourne

Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, music became a part of Joe's life at an early age. He began his singing career in a church choir and with various street corner singing groups.

Greatly inspired by such greats as Nat King Cole and Lou Rawls, Joe's own singing style is rapidly becoming known to audiences around the globe.

Joe's career grew in the USA from lead singer for a Top 40 rhythm and blues / jazz band, to the international status that he now enjoys, recording and releasing LPs and subsequently having hit singles from these LPs. At the same time he was involved in making several radio and TV commercials for Delta Airlines, Coca Cola and the American Telephone Company.

After moving to Europe, Joe began performing for the American and Dutch Military and supported acts in concert for such artists as The Stylistics, Natalie Cole, The Manhattans, The Pointer Sisters, and Dionne Warwick while they were on their European tour.

His engagements have included venues and corporate events in such places as Scandinavia, Australia, Aruba, Indonesia, Great Britain, Spain, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.

Numerous television shows culminated in a Christmas TV special with the world renown Ray Charles which was filmed in Germany and televised in various markets throughout the world.

Joe continues to expand his already extensive repertoire, delivering his special brand of entertainment for Radio and TV programs, gala evenings, concerts, dinner shows, film premieres, new product presentations, designer fashion shows, openings, conventions, cruise ship galas, and charity benefits.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
