 Description
A beloved Memphis entertainer, Joyce Cobb seems to have played everything, everywhere. From crooning in her own club on Beale Street, to singing jazz on international tours, to belting blues and rock classics at countless weddings and corporate functions, Joyce Cobb truly can play everything, everywhere.

Want the elegance of Roberta Flack or Cole Porter? The sexy blues of Billie Holliday or Ruth Brown? The soul of Marvin Gaye or Aretha Franklin? The energetic pop of Tina Turner or Shania Twain? The classic rock of Madonna or the Rolling Stones? The Memphis music of Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, B.B. King, Charlie Rich, Al Green, Isaac Hayes, Ann Peebles, and more? No problem. Joyce Cobb does it all with grace and brilliance. She's masterful at setting an elegant mood — and then heating up the dance floor when the crowd is ready to boogie.

Working with some of the region's finest musicians, Joyce can perform as a trio, quartet, or much larger band.

 Quotes
"Joyce Cobb was perfect. She was absolutely amazing, and Kevin and I and all of our guests were thrilled by her and her performance. Joyce and her band far exceeded my expectations! The evening was truly magical, and your help in booking Joyce contributed to that. Our first dance ('Walking in Memphis') were a few moments in time that I will never forget. I would recommend her to anyone." -- Laura Miller

"One of Memphis's great musical treasures." — Christopher Blank, Memphis Commerical Appeal

"I can't even begin to express how great the entertainment was for the wedding last weekend. Joyce was amazing, the band was great, and a good time was had by all. And thanks to REG for being so easy to work with." -- Debbie Miller
