Joseph Antonelli – Music and Recovery; Stage name “Joe Zep” (Drummer/Vocals) is a dynamic performer, drummer, songwriter, and entertainer.
His boundless energy, charisma, presence, and sense of humor are contagious. His perfect meter, and ability to mesh into any style of music, without trying to overpower it, is what makes Joe Zep so special. He always knows what to play, and more importantly, what not to play in a song, in order to allow the song’s full potential to be reached. This also holds true with the other performers on the stage. Joe Zep has the uncanny ability to accessorize the other artists in such a way to allow their performances to be highlighted. Therefore highlighting his own….. This is his creed, and the essence to which he approaches the instrument every time he sits behind the drums.
