What kind of a guy fronts a seminal rock band on RCA called Jukin’ Bone in the 70’s, then plays the rock and roll revival circuit with Bobby Comstock, replaces Ronnie Dio in Elf, tours with Van Halen, records two classic blues albums and “Backbone Slip,” sings, plays sax, and tours the world for three years with Savoy Brown, gets a GRAMMY nomination, is a member of the Syracuse Music Hall of Fame, and has had a successful solo career to boot?
You guessed it! It’s Jumpin’ Joe Whiting, THAT’S who! Joe has just about done it all – from house parties, concert halls, festivals, to the bar just around the corner – and approaches every performance with the enthusiasm that he had when he was a kid!
Today, with his award-winning band, Joe can help make any festival, concert, or special event memorable by bringing personality, professionalism, and his unique brand of “blue-eyed” soul music to virtually any venue anywhere.
Here are some of the reviews Joe has received over the years:
“Joe Whiting’s voice has ranked with the best of America’s” Herald American
“Strong, assured and convincing” Goldmine Magazine
“Whiting is a vocalist with power and energy” Relix Magazine
“Whiting’s earthy, emotional singing gives a soulful conviction” Chicago Tribune
