Joe Bourne and Crystal Stark

Joe Boune and Crystal Stark

Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, music became a part of life for Joe Bourne at an early age. He began his singing career in a church choir and with various street corner singing groups. Greatly inspired by such greats as Nat King Cole and Lou Rawls, Joe’s own singing style is rapidly becoming known to audiences around the globe.
Joe’s career grew in the USA from lead singer for a Top 40 rhythm and blues / jazz band, to the international status that he now enjoys, recording and releasing LPs and subsequently having hit singles from these LPs. After moving to Europe, Joe began performing for the American Military and supported acts in concert for such artists as The Stylistics, Natalie Cole, The Manhattans, The Pointer Sisters, and Dionne Warwick while they were on their European tour.

His engagements have included places such as Scandinavia, Australia, Aruba, Indonesia, Great Britain, Spain, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. Numerous television shows culminated in a Christmas TV special with the world renown Ray Charles which was filmed in Germany and televised in various markets throughout the world. Joe continues to expand his already extensive repertoire, delivering his special brand of entertainment for Radio and TV programs, gala evenings, concerts, dinner shows, film premieres, new product presentations, designer fashion shows, openings, conventions, cruise ship galas, and charity benefits.

Joe teams up with his female colleagues for some heart-warming duet performances complemented by various orchestra backings from combo to Big Band or symphony type orchestra.


When powerhouse vocalist Crystal Stark performs, she doesn’t just take the stage – she owns it.

The international performer and American Idol semi-finalist got her start singing in her home town of Tucson, Arizona. She auditioned for Season 5 of American Idol. Crystal made the top 44 and, although her Idol journey stopped there, she forged a close friendship with season runner-up Katharine McPhee and joined Katharine’s national tour as a back-up singer.

Her subsequent travels have taken her to venues throughout in the United States and abroad, and she has shared the stage with such talents as trumpeter Rick Braun, guitarist Matt Marshak. and beloved comedian Bob Newhart. While touring with Katharine McPhee, Crystal appeared on The Tonight Show, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Regis & Kelly, The Today Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live, among others.

Today, Crystal enjoys a full performance calendar that reflects the diversity of her wide-ranging talents. In addition to fronting the Crystal Stark Band which plays at venues around Arizona and for corporate functions, she sings with 80s cover band 80s and Gentlemen, vocal trio Triple Threat, the Tucson Pops Orchestra, and Big Band Express, among others.

Her second studio album, “One Way,” was released on May 30, 2015 – “Crystal Stark Day” – as declared by City of Tucson mayor Jonathan Rothschild. The album features all original compositions by Crystal, and leans heavily on her soul/jazz roots for many of its songs.

When not on stage, Crystal is the Director of General Music, Band & Choir for Esmond Station K-8 school in Vail, Arizona.
