"Joshua Bonas did such an amazing job at our wedding, we couldn’t be happier! We first heard Josh play at En Fuego and knew after listening to a few live songs, that we wanted him for our entire wedding. Josh was so easy/accommodating while planning the wedding/choosing different songs. He was able to bring a relaxed feeling to our wedding (which my husband wanted) but also added a beautiful/elegant touch (which I wanted). He played during the prelude and processions during the ceremony, and the acoustic guitar (Canon in D), as I walked down the aisle. All while it was 105 degrees outside (hottest day on record for October)! He also played the guitar during our cocktail, and we received so many compliments of how good he was. One of my most favorite memories of our wedding was when Josh sang/played our first dance live- Making Memories of Us by Keith Urban. Josh kept the dance floor packed the entire time! All I wanted was a DJ that knew how to keep the party going and Josh nailed it! We highly recommend Josh, he is extremely talented and so professional. We look forward to listening him at En Fuego in Del Mar on Wednesday nights and reminiscing our wedding day." - Melissa, Married 6/16/2016
"We were lucky to have Josh Bonas for our wedding and reception! He played acoustic guitar for our ceremony, played live for the cocktail hour, did an special acoustic guitar version of The best is Yet to Come for our first dance and then DJ for the rest of the night. He was awesome! He listened to what we wanted and requested and then filled in whatever was needed in between seamlessly. I was quite emotional coming down the aisle - but Josh's music calmed me down and made me feel happy!" - Laura G., Married 9/3/2016
Joshua Bonas provides the perfect soundtrack to your wedding with flawless acoustic interpretations of your favorite songs, then DJ'ing a rocking dance party during your reception.
One of the first things you will notice when you meet Josh is his passion – passion for music, for your event, for people. Josh is in love with life, and he expresses that most succinctly through his music. He has incredible technical skill on the guitar, a huge repertoire of live music from across genres and decades, and Josh puts his heart-melting original spin on everything he sings. He was raised in Nashville where his mom is a well-known studio singer who earned a Country Music Billboard and Top 40 hit with her original band Nightstreets while performing as backup singer and opening act for international country music stars George Jones and Tammy Wynette; Josh has music in his blood. Josh self-released his first album "Castaway", available on iTunes, in 2011. In 2015 he graduated from the prestigious UCSD computer music program with a BA in Interdisciplinary Computing Arts, marrying the art of music with the science of computers. This program spawned a collaboration between Josh and electronic producer/DJ Jake Schneider; ShowingULove is a cutting edge mix of Josh's acoustic music set to live DJ production of house/techno/dace beats. Adding to Josh's love of teaching music, he earned a Master's in Education and a Teaching Credential in English in 2018. When Josh is not performing at a wedding or working on his music you can find him spending time with his daughter and wife, in the line-up catching some waves, or teaching English and literature to high school students.

Joshua Bonas Live at Wedding
"Just Breathe" - Pearl Jam Cover
"Josh Bonas works with Still Listening Productions as a songwriter/musician/DJ. I HIGHLY recommend him for any wedding/event! He played live music and DJ'd at my wedding this past June and my guests raved about his amazing guitar skills. Also, his DJ-ing was insane. The dance floor was crowded the whole night and Josh knew exactly what songs my guests wanted to hear. He is very knowledgeable regarding songs and artists. He helped my husband and me pick out wedding songs and must-plays. Josh is beyond a 5 STAR! If I host any event in the future, I will make sure to have him there!" – Kristen H., Married June 6, 2014,
