We just finished our first two weeks back at sea and have been having a blast, for sure. The Atrium has been packed and we are enjoying the families on board this holiday season. We have met a lot of new friends and fans too. Dave the cruise director is here with us, along with Luz as ACD! Come on out to see us all.
We also debuted our new show called "Neil Diamond and Friends" in the Stardust Theater to an amazing reception and it looks like we will be performing this show every week. We have added some iconic music to the show and it features the legends you know and love!

CHECK OUR CALENDAR FOR THE SHOWS IN MARCH, AND WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THOSE UPCOMING SHOWS.
THIS MONTH WE ARE BEING FEATURED IN AN ONLINE MAGAZINE CALLED VOYAGEMIA:
HAVE A GREAT WEEK AHEAD EVERYONE AND AS ALWAYS, BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!!
We have just returned from a month aboard the Pride of America, which sails out of the Hawaiin Islands. It was a beautiful trip and we had a great time meeting people from all over the world, including China, Japan, Australia, Argentina, and the beautiful states of ours in the US! We saw whales, volcanoes, beaches and even the lunar eclipse, which just blew us away. It's never lost on us that we are a lucky couple, who get to travel and do what we love, together. Check out our Facebook Fan Page JOSE AND PATTI, where you can see our photos from this recent adventure!
Thursday we have our SOLDOUT annual Fundraiser at St. Gabriel's Catholic Church. We will headline this variety show and perform for our local community, while giving 100 percent of the proceeds to our church through Father Tony, our pastor. This is his final year before retiring and we know it will be a high energy and emotionally charged event. We really can't wait to see you there! THANK YOU ALL for making it a sellout.
Now that we are on dry land, we have a few of our theater shows coming up on the west coast of Florida, so please be sure to click on our calendar for details. While some locations may be open to the public, we wanted to note that we are booked privately via our agent, so please do try to contact the locations directly for any ticket availability as, unfortunately, we have no control or connection to any of that. That said, we have already heard from some of you who have done so and look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks! New Port Richey, Fort Myers, Pasco Hernando College, Clearwater, Venice, here we come!...
In the Spring, we will be boarding the Norwegian Dawn out of Tampa and we will be visiting the Western Caribbean and Mexico for a while, before we get back our Boston/Bermuda run. More news may be coming soon, so stay tuned :)
We hope you are all staying warm wherever you are, and as always, be careful out there! J and P
Happy holidays everyone! We hope that this is finding you surrounded by loved ones and with full and peaceful hearts. 2018 is just around the corner and we wish you all prosperity, health and joy in what lies ahead these next few days and weeks!
On February 8th, we will be performing our Jose and Patti Variety Show at our Annual Fundraiser to raise money for our local parish. Showtime is at 7:00-8:15PM at St. Gabriel's Catholic Church, 731 North Ocean Blvd. Pompano Beach, Florida. 33062. We will perform in the Parish hall. Donation at the door is $20/p.p., and will include a social hour, starting at 6PM, with wine, beer, cookies and appetizers. Come early and meet your neighbors and fellow music fans!
Please call Malcolm Miekle at (207) 831-0385 for all details and information regarding ticket sales, seating, and more. Tickets will sell out, so we suggest getting them soon. This will be father Tony's last year at the church as he is retiring in June, so we plan to send him off in style, and raise the biggest amount, in His name, yet! We can't wait to see you all then!
Happy New Year everyone! Stay well, be safe and may 2018 be the best year yet for you all!

Less than two weeks to go and we will be headlining a fundraiser on November 18th for the Foster Kids of Merrimack Valley at the Blue Ocean Music Hall in Salisbury, MA. It is officially sold out, and we are more than excited to see you all while raising money to build a new home for those that need it most. Thank you Thank you Thank you to all who have made this show a possibility!
We are finishing up an incredible Fall season here on the Norwegian Dawn, and head home soon...Hope to see you all either at the show, or in Hawaii in January, or maybe at one of our land shows in Florida in the Spring.
Please check out our posts on our Facebook page, and/or click on the calendar link (above) for dates in 2018. The holiday season is fast approaching, the weather is turning and we hope that you are all ready for what beautiful things lay ahead. Till the next time,.....
The summer parties are beginning to wind down, those warm skies are getting smoky, and the nights begin to lengthen. We hope that you all had a fantastic summer full of great memories.
We cannot believe that we have less than two weeks to go, and we get back to work. Where did that time go? We had lots of downtime, studio time, and travels galore. We saw friends and family, climbed mountains, rode horses, swam in beaches/ hot and cold springs and pools, made comfort homestyle dinners, flew the skies, took road trips, and finally, celebrated and rejuvinated our bodies and souls. We joined Bart Delaney of Suman Entertainment for three sessions this summer and played with his band (known as A-Band-On-Ship) at the Hard Rock Miami. (see photo below) We had the pleasure of meeting and playing with some great musicians from around the world and cannot thank Bart enough for those great jams - even for the day we got totally waterlogged under a true Miami downpour!! Now after almost three months at home and on land, we are getting ready for another New England season on the high seas! WHEW!
We have just updated our calendar right through the end of 2018 as well, so check that out at the above link if you are planning any trips to the high seas either in New England, Tampa, Bermuda or in Hawaii...we will see you there.
Looking forward to catching up with you all soon......J and P
This summer we are truly mixing work with pleasure as we are on dry land for a few months. We will be working hard on new shows, new sites, new music and new adventures.
Jose is busy recording some industrials for Temple University's Law Department, and also making music for a World Tour group about to head out to tour China and South America.
Patti is working on some new original tunes with her co-writer and running miles and miles each morning.
On a personal note, later in the season, we will be going to a highly anticipated family reunion in South America as well. We will experience some very exotic lodgings while we are there. (Patti is hoping to make it to the "Swing at the top of the world", so we will keep you posted on that).
We hope that whatever you do this summer, it brings you joy and good times with the ones you love! That beach has been calling out to us and we cannot refuse. Hope you heed the call too.
Here's something fun: Check out our new flip-flops available on our Cafe Press site: They are perfect for those sandy days ahead.
We hope that you are all gearing up for a fabulous summer. Here at the JandP house, we have been working hard on some new projects, including this new site. Fewer pages, simple designs, and with links to and from the most popular pages on our previous site. There is still some construction to be done here and there, but we didn't think you would mind....what's a little dust amongst friends, right? We will add a new Gallery soon too! Check out our new social media links, music purchase pages, and more......So,....please share, browse, and let us know what you think, ok? It will be great to hear from you.....looking forward to contacting you all again soon. and....be careful out there!!!
WOW! - what a night we had at the Palace Theatre this past weekend in beautiful New Hampshire. Our good friend and very funny comedian, Joe Yannetty, had the house in stitches as the opening act, and we all raised ANOTHER $10,000!!! for the New Hampshire Prostate Cancer Coalition.
We want to thank each and every one of you who attended and helped make this 3rd Annual Jeff Kantor evening possible. 27 local businesses were involved, and Mr. Richard Hatin, along with the Board of Directors of the Palace Theatre had another very fruitful and very succesful event. We are so grateful to our friends, followers and fans for all the time you spent getting to New Hamsphire, bringing friends, taking photos and chatting with us and supporting our efforts. If you have photos or videos to share please go to our Facebook page or send us links on You Tube for all to see. The incredible sounding 7-piece band we had the privilege of playing with was led by Mr. Whit Privette, and they were on FIRE!! If you were there, you know what we are talking about. These guys "smashed" it! They will be with us again when we perform in Salisbury later this year. See below for more on that show.
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts, as we hope to keep adding more excitment each year to this great event for a worthy cause. You can always GO TO WWW.PCCNH.ORG FOR DONATIONS! THEY WOULD APPRECIATE IT. If you know anyone who has been affected by this disease, send them a neck tie from that person for a future exhibition. Call them, contact them and ask for Mr. Richard Hatin, and ask how you can participate in this....imagine all the people,.....
We are NOW CONTINUING all the planning stages for another benefit show on November 18th, 2017. This will take place at the Blue Ocean Music Hall, in Salisbury MASS. and will raise money for Foster Kids of Merrimack Valley, Inc.
When the kids turn 18, they need a place to live, and hopefully we can help to give them a real home.....see: www.fosterkidsmv.org for info and donation information. Please click "schedules" above for details and contacts, and ticketing information. Ticketmaster also has tickets available for this show.
LASTLY, THANKS AGAIN TO EVERYONE WE HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING AND WORKING WITH ON THE PRIDE OF AMERICA IN JANUARY. WE WILL BE RETURNING THERE, TO SAIL THOSE BEAUTIFUL ISLANDS, WHILE BRINGING WITH US TWO FULL STAGE SHOWS! CHECK THE SCHEDULES PAGE (ABOVE) FOR UPDATES SOON!!!
Click the "SCHEDULES" link above for any our SHOW DATES, information, and more. Scroll down the calendar for all the latest. WE ARE NOW GETTING CALLS FOR 2018 BOOKINGS AND WE'LL LET YOU KNOW THE WHERES AND WHENS AS SOON AS WE ARE ABLE.

WE ARE GETTING DAILY CONFIRMATIONS AND WILL POST ANY AND ALL INFORMATION REGARDING EACH SHOW AS SOON AS IT COMES IN THROUGHOUT THESE NEXT FEW WEEKS AND MONTHS AHEAD...THANKS TO EVERYONE AT THE WILLIAM CLARE AGENCY FOR REPRESENTING US FOR THESE CONCERTS.
Finally, we thank you for stopping by and checking in on us, and be careful out there!
