Joe has been a drummer since his early childhood, and also plays violin and keyboards. He and Ray began working together in the late 80's, and formed the Asbury Park-based band Torq in 1993. It has been a wild ride since then!
He is an accomplished vocalist, and he can be heard singing lead in songs like Harley Rider and Omnichrome. He also contributes backing vocals to almost every song, and swaps off lead vocals on some other songs. As a singing actor, he is known for his singing in local stage productions of musicals like Chess and Snoopy.
Joe plays Tama drums, and recently got hold of a vintage Ludwig kit. He is a fervant endordser of Evans drum heads.
