Welcome to the home of Joe Fryd & Uptown - Funk Productions
Hello and thank you for visiting my website!
I am an Award Winning singer and entertainer based in Billericay, Essex, who excels in the swing, jazz and classical / contemporary music genres. I have been singing since I was 8 years old and I have made it my life long ambition to entertain and perform ever since!
I sing a wide range of music to suit all audiences, venues and age groups from modern and contemporary to older more timeless songs, club classics and a broad range of jazz, soul, Motown and swing genres which engage the entire audience.
As you will see from my gallery I love getting my audiences involved in my performances and work hard to make sure you and all of your guests enjoy a fantastic experience of unforgettable entertainment, music and memories. Simply put I adore all styles of music and provide entertainment that guarantees all ages and tastes not only enjoy my performances but are always left wanting more!
I have been singing in the UK & Europe for the past 6 years during which I have enjoyed performing and working with some of the most prestigious Hotel, corporate & family entertainment venues and organisations that Europe has to offer. I have enjoyed singing with Radio stations Phoenix FM in their Live Lounge forum & Heart FM's seasonal Halloween and Christmas roadshows for the past few years. My TV credits include enjoying success appearing on ITV's Britains Got Talent and working with Wall to Wall productions on BBC's The Voice.
I absolutely adore my job as I have the enormous privilege of singing at many of the UK & South of England's most bespoke wedding and ceremonial venues to make the bride & groom's day as amazing as it deserves to be. Such has been the success and demand for my live performances over past year that I was voted Number 1 choice for the Best Wedding Entertainer for Essex, London and the UK by the general public at the Wedding Industry Experts Awards 2016, which felt quite simply AMAZING!
The Production element to my business Uptown - Funk Productions was born out of companies, venues and clients wanting more out of their shows and entertainement than their existing clients could provide them with. I share my vision of performance and staging logistics alongside supplying them with the most elite sound, lighting and technical support to ensure the standard is always raised.
Another aspect of my performance production is my tribute show dedicated to the music and songs of the Canadian Superstar Micael Buble'. I have been performing an extremely popular "Michael Buble Tribute Act", which has taken me up and down the UK at over 50 venues in the past 3 years and continues to flourish in it's demand, scale and diversity, so please contact me for more details!
