About Us

Barrie, Ontario based musician Joe Abbott has been both teaching guitar lessons and performing all over Simcoe County for the past several years.

Joe teaches guitar lessons from his home studio on Mapleview Drive. His versatility as a guitarist and passion for teaching has helped bring many guitar students to a level of playing and performing that has earned them awards including one particular student scoring the highest grade in Ontario, the Silver Medal, on their Grade 2 Classical Guitar Exam!

Joe performs a solo acoustic guitar and vocal show at many local establishments on a weekly basis. He also performs in a celtic rock band at the irish pubs and plays lead guitar in Alternative Rock band "System Status Red" alongside band members Darryl Hardy, Bryan Lake, and Chris Duffin.

Joe is the frontman and lead guitarist of a brand new wedding and corporate function cover band created with the sole purpose of keeping your dance floor bumping all night! The band is a 4 piece consisting of drums, bass, keyboards/ synth, guitar, and both male and female vocals!

Stay tuned for a new video collage of the wedding band performing some fantastic tunes in the Media Gallery in the near future! Visit the Bookings page to send a request for more information and pricing!
