  • Length:08:00 pm

Who is Almost Joe and what kind of music do they play?

Almost Joe are asked that quite a bit. They started in 2006 with a dedicated core of five and ranging from seven to ten members at any given time, they began playing any venue that could hold them. They decided early to pass on the usual cover/tribute route in favor of approachable originals and a wide range of covers, many with their own twist. Styles range from Rock to Blues & Jazz all fused with Latin Grooves. With powerful vocalists, and a variety of musical styles, they are a musical mutt with far ranging influences From Santana and Earth Wind and Fire to AC/DC and Pink Floyd, Willie Colon and Jimi Hendrix and Spyro Gyra with Motown. You get the idea…

The band consists of the Vega brothers on percussion, Hector on Timbales, and Angelo on congas giving us a distinct Caribbean flavor. John Belpedio on bass and Manny Tapia on drums set the groove… Bill Cornish on keys brings his unique color and texture to the mix. Barry Wood on Sax and on guitar, Luis Allende ties all our Latin and Fusion influences together. Top that off with the soulful vocals of our own Paul Veselak and Diane Savaglio to create an original sound that draws everyone to the venue and the dance floor.

Doors Open at 7:30 show starts at 8:00, Admission is $8.00.
