He has since played in pit orchestras for Broadway shows, as well as in rock, funk and jazz bands, and as a session player with distinguished artists Johnny Winter, Julie Budd, Johnny Mathis, Billy Vera, the Temptations, the Four Tops and the Pointer Sisters. Joe is the newest member of ATS 2.0, adding virtuoso solos and supporting lines that compliment and support Dodie’s compelling lead guitar work, and he has been known to step out and sing lead on a song or two as well.
