Here's what folks are saying about Joey.....
You are a genuine talent, and I am happy to see you putting that out there. I've seen you a lot, and you are every bit what you say and more.
Joey picked up his first guitar at age 9 and has been in love ever since! The Las Vegas native is a consummate entertainer, and can keep a crowd dancing and singing along for hours with his incredibly versatile voice and vast repertoire of “sing along” favorites, Country hits, Blues treasures, beloved Rhythm and Blues numbers and Rock and Roll Classics!!
In 1988, he began his professional career as a performer with his first engagement at the Tropicana Hotel where he first met band leader Sam Butera; Sam was an incredible performer and saxophonist formally with the legendary Louis Prima.
~ Usually when a musician returns to his roots, he goes back to playing what put him on the path to a career in music.
"I'm very much grounded in the blues," Vitale says. "I love that style of music. When you play the Blues, it’s more about what comes from your heart.”
Vitale plays a variety of Blues, including Stevie Ray Vaughn, ZZ Top, Muddy Waters and Eric Clapton. The Las Vegas native got his first guitar when he was 9 years old. “I didn’t get the rock and roll bug until I got my first KISS 8-track tape,” Vitale says. “I would sit in my room and learn how to play those songs over and over.”
