Philly Joe Guitar


Band to Join, Bass Guitar, Drums, Other Percussion, Trumpet, Saxophone, Keyboard, Trombone.


Grew up in Philadelphia, studied with the best teachers in Philly. Played mostly in the Funk / R & B genra as a young musician and have built on that in all my musical endevours. As a schooled musician I can read & write charts and arrangements. I have a very good ear and have a strong sense of what is being played by those around me (BIG EARS). I am a fast learner and can always find a part no mater what the situation is. I am experienced in Rock, Funk, Country, Jazz, Jazz Fusion and all Latin formats. I am very computer savy with a background in recording & producing. Available for gigs, shows & studio work.
