Joanne is a vocal entertainer based in Hartlepool. She has great experience in performing in Nursing Homes, Day Centres, Sheltered Housing, Caravan Parks and clubs, catering for all age groups.
Joanne’s shows are always fun, filled with a great mixture of music and her voice is able to adapt to many different types of songs. When doing any performance, if it is appropriate, Joanne loves to get out to her audience getting them to join in and sing along in any capacity that they can. It's always wonderful to see the residents have a fabulous time, this is the great reward of doing the job, and she also likes to make a fuss of the staff too if they are game! This all helps to raise the atmosphere and for all to generally have a fun filled time!
Joanne works as a professional singer and music teacher, and is fully CRB checked for work with children and/or vulnerable adults by Hartlepool Council.
