Joe formed several bands over the years, each one building up a faithful following - the most successful being “Cross The Border” working solidly every week for almost 10 years, but none have come even close to the present line up of talented musicians that Joe has with him in “The Joe Galea Band”.
Since Joe formed his own band they have been in constant demand at many venues in and around Melbourne as well as earning a reputation at Music Festivals as being “The Highlight of the Festival”.
Nicknamed “The Nightingale on Steroids!” by one of the photographers at the
Wangaratta Festival, Joe continues to win audiences where ever he plays. He has the ability to reach out to every last person in the audience and take them on a musical experience that pleases and satisfies everyone!
The Mornington Festival and the Wangaratta Festival were reminiscent of the children’s story - The Three Little Pigs, I’m sure you all remember, the music starts and then everyone is on the floor, and the house is jumpin!
I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it! Apart from Joe’s vocals, you also have the fantastic wailing solos from the Sax, or the smooth bluesy tones from the piano/organ. Along with the excellent slide/lead guitar, bass and drums you have - “The Joe Galea Band”
