Josh Forner performs solo at all times unless otherwise arranged for special events, launches, and the like;
Unpaid gigs will not be accepted unless they are for charity, social justice or other such activism after given full consideration;
Josh is a very outspoken an opinionated individual. If your audience or staff are sensitive to issues of a political nature, equality, social justice, human rights and marriage equality (among other things), please consider whether booking Josh is right for you;
Josh has a very large catalogue of original material and prefers to play these in favour of covers. A covers repertoire is slowly being developed, but original music is at the heart of Josh's performances;
Please do not rely on Josh to bring 4,000 people into your venue. He is happy to support the growth and talent within the local music industry, however with a fanbase that is made up of mostly other musicians, commitment to shows is obviously a hit-and-miss situation.
