“Gerry Beaudoin: Yeah, I had a very young student named Joey Vellucci. He’s self-taught. He came to me to learn swing music and jazz. He’s a great blues player. I mean he was twenty years old and a great blues guitar player. He won a Boston Battle of the Blues Bands. I was so proud of him. Now he plays everything, jazz, soul, funk, reggae, gypsy jazs, surf music, rock ‘n’ roll, he’s gigging everywhere. I haven’t seen anybody who plays as many gigs as him.”
“The Joey Vellucci Band played at our event and they went far beyond our expectations! Everyone who was playing tennis got to listen to the band as they played and others who weren’t playing had great music! I would recommend you as a band who can play anything you want and then go with the flow of the party and the people who are into dancing. I had 250 people and they found the perfect space to play. Live music at its best!

“The Joey Vellucci Band performed at our wedding of around 300 people. Joey created such a great atmosphere. Joey also acted as the MC for the wedding which helped out a lot. They played anything we requested; something slow to dance to or something to get everyone on their feet, it didn't matter, they did it. Joey went as far as to learn some Japanese so that my father in law in Japan could be included! We have a ton of great memories because of it. As the groom, I was allowed to sit in on a few numbers with the band. It was like a dream that was caught on video. People still talk about it with me whenever the subject of my wedding comes up. Good times.

“To Whom It May Concern:
Joey Vellucci is one of the most exciting Soul, Funk, Reggae, and Jazz guitarist I have worked with in the Boston area. He posesses a large range of styles that he brings together on his performances that is absolute entertaining. The audience loves it. He tops his performance with his soulful vocal style. His band is the icing on the cake at every event I have played with him.

“Joey helped to custom tailor the band for our wedding by working with us directly to find us the combinations of instruments that would produce the best sound for the type of music we wanted and that would fit in our budget. They were there early to set up, and played expertly for our guests during our cocktail hour and after dinner dancing.
Our wedding was a BLAST. All the guests commented on the richness of the sound and really appreciated having a live band there rather than a DJ. The Joey Vellucci Band's music really got our crowd up and dancing (even my grandmother), and really brought our dance floor to life.
would recommend The Joey Vellucci Band to anyone I knew in the area having a wedding who wants a fantastic band there to play some live music.
We had about 285 people. The space for the band to play in wasn't too large, but they made the most of it.

"The Joey Vellucci Band was excellent! They really made our wedding reception. They got people up and dancing, even those who typically aren’t the dancing type including my husband! They played a great selection of songs. We had 175 people, and Joey did a great job of being our MC as well as leading the band. I would highly recommend this band for any type of event that you want people to have a good time. We’re looking forward to the next time we have an occasion to hire them."
Thank You Joey!!

Joey Vellucci and the Joey Vellucci Band,
We can not thank you enough for being apart of the Adopt A Shop fundraiser. You truly did a wonderful job and went above and beyond in order to help us fundraise for the students at Blue Hills Regional Technical School.
Your contribution to “Adopt A Shop Comedy Night” in 2009 had our audience requesting your appearance at future events and we were excited to include you on our tickets once again. You can imagine the look on their faces when they got the good news that the Joey Vellucci Band would be in attendance that night. Talk about ticket sales selling fast, all because you were a part of our event.
It is our pleasure to recommend the Joey Vellucci Band when anyone is looking for the ultimate professional music ensemble for their private parties, corporate functions, wedding receptions or other fundraising events.
