In a statement Joe's Pub director Shanta Thake said, "The 10th anniversary is a great opportunity for us to reflect on the immense breadth of talent that has come through our doors while continuing to set the standard for live entertainment in New York, the country, and the world. We have created a space where literally anything is possible. From hip-hop to country, dance to jazz, and Broadway to Bach, you can see it at Joe's Pub."

Public Theater artistic director Oskar Eustis added, "In the last 10 years Joe's Pub has become an integral part of the Public Theater's mission and the cultural life of New York.
