Meet Joe Field
I was born the youngest of 5. I grew up listening to my parents Big Bands, my sister’s Doo Wop, my brothers Soul and Rock and Roll. All have been great influences. I got a play drum set on Christmas, at age 6, because, according to my mother, I was always tapping on things. At the age of 14 I got my first real drum set, and so it began. At 16 I was playing in my brother’s friends studio, doing originals. From the age of 18 on I’ve been in different bands, playing anything from Pop, New Wave and everything in between, playing locally and in Jersey. Now, I play with some guys I have known for many years and some guys and a gal I just met, but are now lifetime friends in Skinny Mamie.
