“Joe kicked off the set with a version of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Pride and Joy.” Guitar masters like Vaughan have the uncanny ability to play rhythm and lead at the same time. That’s tough enough to do on an electric guitar, but Joe pulled off a more than credible rendition with his acoustic." -TheMinnyApple.com
"A likeness to Bon Jovi and Stevie Ray Vaughan with a throw of Jazz, beautiful guitar work with impressive vocals."
-Crimson Clear Productions
"Joe played our blues fest and showed his versatility going from playing in an intimate pub setting to blowing us away at the jam session. Joe helped make it a GREAT weekend fest!"
