His stage presence is second to none, displaying explosive
energy, glittery costuming, humour and most importantly an ability
to reach out and touch his audiences.
From his early years Joe was found to have pure raw
vocal talent as the principal vocalist in school choirs to fronting
rock bands and orchestras. Along the way he had his own banquet/bar
band, "Breezin' with Joe Callura", for some 15 years but most
notably performed on weekends in the late 60s in his home town
at Hamilton's hottest dance club (Club Continental), where he
first started to perform as a Tom Jones tribute artist, while
at the same time supporting himself during his school years.
At the young age of 19 Joe turned down an RCA Victor recording
career in favour of finishing university, which ultimately led
to a professional accounting degree as a Chartered Accountant.
To this day he runs his own full time public accountancy practice
by day but continues to be a professional vocalist by night. This
strange combination has been the subject of television episodes
on programs such as the CTV National News and the Rogers TV Prosperity
Show as well as numerous newspaper and magazine articles.
In 1994, after a long hiatis, Joe was invited to bring his Tom
Jones routine out of the closet and to perform it in a high level
Legend show in Toronto, after which he was immediately invited
to appear at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas. Since then Las Vegas
has been a regular stop for this performer as well as other US
and Canadian cities. Locally Joe has performed in such prestigious
venues such as Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto and Hamilton Place.
His Tom Jones act has become a popular product for numerous Legend
Show promoters. In that Joe performs some 500 songs of various
artists spanning diverse vocal styles such as Bocelli to Bee Gees,
he has evolved as an accomplished general stage entertainer, although
he continues to be best known as one of the world's premier Tom
Jones tribute artists. Additionally he has created his own show,
"Simply Entertainment", which showcases many of the other performers
that he has met along the way as well as himself. Most recently
Joe completed his first recording called "Love From Many Angles"
which offers 12 original songs of varying styles.
Whether you want to hire Joe to perform his solo Tom Jones act,
his solo Vegas Vocalist/Entertainer act or to engage him to put
together a full legends based show, the resultant entertainment
product and related cost will be catered to your personal budget.
For the smaller budgets Joe vocalizes live to pre-recorded musical
background tracks and for the larger venues he uses live bands
ranging from 4 pieces to as much as a 13 piece orchestra.
"Powerful", "Emotional" and "Wide Ranging" are just some of the
terms used to describe Joe's vocal talents. It has been regularly
commented that "your voice sent chills running down my spine".
His stage presence is second to none, displaying explosive energy,
glittery costuming, humour and most importantly an ability to
reach out and touch his audiences. After seeing one of Joe's energetic
performances YOU will be
