Starting in South Philly clubs ( in the 60’s ) such as the Venus Lounge, he was heard by a vocal trainer named Artie Singer who also trained, Al Martino, James Darren, Frankie Avalon, Bobby Rydell, and other popular singers that were in the mainstream of music during the 1960’s.
Until 1967, Joe played local “gigs” and landed a stint in Las Vegas at the Aladdin Hotel. Soon afterwards, he met and married a California girl and decided that his singing career had to go on hold to build a stable family foundation.
Back on the East Coast while operating his own prosperous construction company, the opportunity to perform a long contracted engagement at Atlantic City’s Tropicana Casino Hotel and The Playboy Hotel Casino was confirmed by long-time producer/promoter/agent friend Danny Luciano, President of International Entertainment Associates in Atlantic City.
These performances led to many other bookings to perform his vocal stylings at the Sheraton Inn Airport, Warwick Hotel and Hilton Stadium Inn.
Joe’s adult contemporary style has left the crowds swaying at many popular nite-spots in the Tri-State area of Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Delaware as well as favorite dinner clubs in New York City.
Joe’s back on stage and are we glad. He’s having fun again!
