He holds a Bachelor of Music in Performance and a Master of Music in Music Technology and is currently an adjunct faculty member at Drexel University in Philadelphia.

Joe is also available as a solo acoustic guitar act. On Steel Drum he performs traditional island songs (Traditional Calypso, Harry Belafonte, Traditional Rumbas ) as well as Reggae (Bob Marley, UB40), classic rock (Creedance Clearwater Revival, Grateful Dead, The Police, The Monkees, Sam Cooke), some Bossa-Nova Jazz (Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luis Bonfa) and 80s, 90s and current hits. Also standard wedding ceremony repertoire. (Bridal March, Traditional Recessional, Pachelbel's canon in D).

As a solo acoustic act, Joe's repertoire covers a plethora of 60s and 70s hits, (Elvis, Beatles, Eagles, Marley, James Taylor, Stevie Wonder) some 1980's (The Police, Talking Heads, Peter Gabriel) and 90's (Sublime, Stone Temple Pilots)

If you're looking for something different, his extremely animated performances on the Quad Cello Steel Drums are most certainly unlike anything you've ever seen! If you are looking for something more laid back, the acoustic act is sure to create the perfect atmosphere with some old favorites.

Joe was absolutely wonderful! We hired Joe to play at our wedding in May. We thought some live music would really add to the mood for the day and we could not have been happier with choosing to go with Joe. He was on time, friendly and overall a great performer. Everyone loved his music. He took tons of requests. It was festive and went perfectly with our outside hookah bar. Joe even played our first dance, which meant he had to carry his steel drum from the outside area all the way around to the reception. He seemed to do this seamlessly and the song was perfect. I would recommend hiring Joe again and again. Very professional!

Joe provided music for a family multi-birthday celebration and it was terrific! He performed solo on steel drum, but you would have thought he was accompanied by a group of talented musicians. The range of selections was outstanding, and just when you were settling into a comfortable, familiar blend of Bob Marley and other reggae favs, you'd hear an outstanding steel drum version of Otis Redding, Pink Floyd or other great 60s/70s music. We had a bounce castle to entertain the kids but they were transfixed by Joe's playing and spent much of their time dancing around his set-up and just watching him play. We would highly recommend Joe for any type, any size event.
