His style is Solid Rock-Blues-Funk, he can Swing, and can also Program Drums for dance grooves. No matter what style or mood, Joe will match it with a Groove. His white Slingerland drums, V-Drums and assorted percussion, are his tools of Groove.

Joe is always looking to play Drums with great players who are dedicated to their craft.
