It's a pleasure to share the stage with someone who has the ability and talent to make the show sound so great, but also someone who shows real passion as if it were his own music!
That is something that shines just as much to the crowd as it does the artist

I have had the great pleasure of having Joe play on my EP and live on stage. He is a consummate professional who is always prepared and willing to go above and beyond to get the job done. Joe is a real attribute to my live show with not only his playing, but with his natural ability to entertain.
(Grace Jones/Stand & Deliver))
Joe's playing is based in the classic style of rock drummers of bygone days. He provides a straight ahead solid groove that allows my band to move around and fall back to the beats he lays down. Fantastic stage presence and solid with a click track, Joe has an added bonus-he's never dull to be around
"After playing with Joe a number of times, I can clearly see how versatile he is within his craft, anything thrown his way will be precisely learned with a passionate, energetic feel. Joe’s ability to adapt on the fly is a true asset. With great gear, attention to detail and an all round professional edge, Joe would have to be my number one recommendation when looking for a drummer!"
(James Reyne/Mark Seymour/Xfactor AU)
“.. Joe brings his passion and enthusiasm on stage with him to every gig. A meticulous learner and a total professional of his craft, he is one of the best drummers I’ve had the pleasure to work with..”
(Music Director of Unlimited Corporate Band)
"We had Joe fill in for us over a year ago now, and after coming to the gig prepared and nailing his parts, we thought we'd have him as first call for fill ins. After playing with Joe more and more, we really enjoyed his solid groove, always playing his parts and never OVER playing, not to mention always being punctual and buying different gear to suit our band's needs; he made sure the sounds were right and at a high standard for what we require. It didn't take long before deciding we wanted to have Joe play for us on a permanent basis, and he has been our main drummer for about a year now."

Joe is a pleasure to work with. He is very versatile, with the ability to adapt quickly to any genre of music. His highly professional attitude makes for an easy and a great time in the studio.
Anthony Salce (Skarlet Blue & The Hiding)
Joe was always great at work shopping ideas for songs, his playing ability was always great but he also had a strong business sense and knowledge which saw him highly involved in organising our US tours
