Song medleys were his forte.  Joe was a great songwriter and he was also known as “the captain of the ship”.  He did most of the booking for wedding, bar gigs, festivals and other parties.  If the band had to be augmented, due to a regular member being unavailable, Joe would recruit musicians, who could step in and, most importantly, retain the original Near Beer Band sound.
