The Joe Fernandes Band, also known as “Dr. No”, has been entertaining crowds for
over 10 years now. They are a versatile, high energy act that can be used for any
occasion. Whether you want to Rock and Roll to all of your favourite hits, or want
to pull out those cowboy hats and do a little two steppin’ this band will get your
party going. For four years the Joe Fernandes Band had a house gig at Roosters Country
Cabaret Sunday nights, and over the years chances are you have seen them playing
at one of your favourite events or watering holes. If Rock or Country isn’t your

The band has also been hosting a jazzy lounge night for the last year and a half
and can be as quiet or as loud as you want. If you’re looking for a fun professional
