Joe Girard sings the Great American Songbook — the timeless tunes of George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Rogers & Hart, Rodgers & Hammerstein and more — as made famous by Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett & Vic Damone.
The Joe Girard story began in Worcester, Massachusetts, in the mid 40’s. Joe was surrounded by both love and music, having Italian parents who loved popular music, and an uncle who loved semi classical music and opera.
The influence of his family spawned his lifelong interest in jazz music and his passion for singing and tasting the pleasure of performing in front of an audience as an entertaine…r. First it was the pleasure of entertaining his parents at family gatherings singing songs such as Night and Day, Mona Lisa, Young at Heart and Strangers in Paradise as well as his Italian Uncle’s favorites like Sorrento and O Solo Mio.
Joe attended college at Northeastern University and studied voice at the Berklee College of Music where he learned the Sinatra method of breathing which prepared him for his future music endeavors as a vocalist recording commercials, songs he composed, touring with dance bands, and entertaining at college concerts and night clubs.
In the early 60’s, popular music was changing and Joe decided to pursue a career in broadcasting and entertainment. Today, as President of JEMI Enterprises, Inc., he consults for entertainment companies but continues his singing career performing all across the country. He performs several shows including tributes to great artists and composers. A versatile vocalist and song stylist, Joe’s repertoire includes his tributes to such popular singers including Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Vic Damone and Barbra Streisand.
