SONiA is the person most responsible for getting me into this "music thing" in the first place. That's right ... I blame her! :)

Trini and I discovered Joe, a Newark denizen, at the Open Mic at Tom's Bullpen that we host every Wednesday night. He's got a GREAT percussive style of playing, and does some very cool things with a looper for his guitar. Add in a great voice, and we're sure you'll love him!
