Joe Hollywood had a love for the sea and entertainment at an early age, spending summers down the Jersey shore at Wildwood, Point Pleasant and Atlantic City. His desire to travel grew, sparked by an early childhood vacation to Disney World and Epcot Center.
Joe's love for rock and roll stemmed from his mom's infatuation with Elvis and his love for music grew with every Beatles song he discovered. Thanks to Billy Joel and Elton John, Joe discovered his dream to be a piano man himself. At age 13, Joe's uncle thought it was time to pass on the gift of music by teaching Joe the piano. At 21, Joe was accepted into Belmont University as a Commercial Piano Performance student. Joe spent three years in Nashville, then moved back to New Jersey to graduate Montclair State University with B.A. Humanities.
In 2013, Joe was offered his first contract as a piano bar entertainer on board the Celebrity Summit and he is still cruising today.
