JoJo Squirrell - 4 piece local Classic Rock Band fronted by a favorite guitarist, Mike Kavanaugh


JoJo Squirrell performs classic rock & roll and contemporary hits covering 3 decades. With four accomplished singers, JoJo Squirrell’s intricate harmonies enhance their stunning musical ability.

Mike Kavanaugh founded the group in 1999 to perform as the house band for Hilton Head Island’s renowned beach bar, the Tiki Hut.  The band continues to entertain guests at one of the East Coast’s most famous beach bars.

Mike has been sharpening his performance skills for more than 25 years. His rhythm guitar and vocals resonate through the hits.

The band is comprised of a mix of the Island’s favorite entertainers including Jevon Daly on lead guitar, Gary Pratt on bass and Chip Larkby on drums. Each lend their vocal abilities throughout the performance.

The band's style changes to fit any situation. James Taylor and Van Morrison for Cocktail or Background music, Jimmy Buffett and Bob Marley for an Island feel. They can provide music for any situation but their main identity is that of a classic rock band featuring music from the Beatles, Eagles, Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead, Doobie Brothers, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty and many more.

Their musical abilities are matched with a witty personality, making sure each of your guests are thoroughly entertained.

JoJo Squirrell uses a state of the art BOSE sound system which provides amazing clarity and tone at any size venue.

I wanted to write a quick note to tell you how great Mike Kavanaugh and Jo Jo Squirrell are. They played at our wedding on Daufuskie.
Mike played his guitar and sang for our ceremony and did a terrific job. We gave him very little guidance so his selections were a surprise, but he couldn't have picked better songs. Jeff and I didn't actually have "a song" before the wedding, but thanks to Mike we now have two. Afterwards, everyone asked how we chose such great songs, but it turns out it was all Mike. And Jo Jo Squirrell was fantastic for the reception. They played great music that everyone could enjoy and they kept the whole group dancing till the very last song. They were able to read the crowd in a way that kept everyone going, which is especially impressive since half of the guests were from Texas and the other half were from Boston. In my experience, a band can make or break a party but Jo Jo Squirrell definitely made our reception super fun.

I also wanted to say thanks to you and Hilton Head Entertainment for making the whole thing easy. It was a little bit stressful coordinating a wedding from out of town, but you stayed in touch and made everything much easier. Frequent emails from you and even a phone call from Mike beforehand made us feel much more at ease.

So thanks again for everything and if you ever need anything from us, please don't hesitate to ask.
