DETROIT'S FAVORITE ACOUSTIC SOUL TWO MAN PARTY BAND

Hi everybody. We're ME + JOE SMITH. We rock party jams by everyone from Johnny Cash to Snoop Dogg. We play pop, soul, hip hop, rock + country – old and new – all in our signature acoustic-soul style. Drummers, Chris Albert or Eric Wilhelm join singer/guitarist, Joe Smith to deliver an entertaining show that packs a big punch for only two musicians. We work hard to engage audiences both young and old by choosing songs from our diverse catalog to connect with the audience that we're entertaining. We'd love to rock your party. Thanks for checking us out.
