Joel Nelson - President
Joel has been in the Music Agency business since 1982. He got his start as a musician (keyboards, guitar, drums, and vocals) playing with such legendary artists as Bo Diddley and sharing the stage with bands like James Brown, The Police, Chuck Berry, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. As his business grew, he incorporated DJ's and other variety entertainers. He has worked with virtually every major venue, event planner, videographer, and photographer in Northern California.
Joel is the bandleader of the Joel Nelson Band, a high-energy DJ/Emcee, and the resident expert on Bay Area event planning. His relentless work ethic and drive to make JNP the best it can be has propelled his agency to the forefront of Event Entertainment in California.
According to Joel, "I can't imagine what my life would have been like without this business. It is my passion, and the possibilities music and event entertainment hold still gets me up at 5 in the morning. I love my clients, and we are so thankful to have been in business for 20 years. I'm looking forward to the next 20 years!"
