Joseph D'Aqui - Signature Artist
No BS, nerdy flash or corporate boasting needed - these sticks deliver results. The best I've ever played in my decades of drumming, and by far the longest lasting.
Self taught, Joe was into drums since he was a child but got serious at age 14 when he began playing in local progressive metal bands, Rush cover bands (80’s) and studied with Tom Cavalucci (Jim Chapin's student). At 21 he was teaching drums while in college.
Teaching and opening his tastes to Jazz/Fusion/Funk led him to completely change everything: got rid of the large Neil Peart drum set and stripped down to a 6 pc. set and taught himself how to play all over again: being a groove oriented foundation. As a result, Joe recorded and performed with funk, R&B, and rock projects in NYC and tri-state area but seriously began to perform with bands after a long hiatus, starting in 2011, simultaneously doing recording sessions for artists and bands remotely in North America. Joe is currently in the band Pierced (piercedtheband.com), who are working on their 2nd album, produced by Mike Orlando of Adrenaline Mob. He has also recorded albums fairly recently for Lion-Hearted, Gavin Guntner and Who on Earth.
