Joyce Agency Entertainment Services Inc.

The Joyce Agency was founded in 1930 by the current President's father and is one of the oldest agencies in the world. The Joyce family has been involved with music for ten generations, starting in the 1600's in Europe and then moving to the United States in 1890. The Joyce Agency has been involved in almost every form of entertainment in the United States and around the world with various offices and worldwide associates.

The Joyce Agency is very proud of its tradition and reputation for initiating and fostering the popularity of many forms of entertainment from vaudeville to country and western, rock and roll, disco, national tours of musicals, dance attractions, and family attractions.
