Hello Everyone,
My name is Joe Nocella. I've been playing drums ever since I was about 4-5 years old. I'm now in my early 50's. My big influence as a kid was the Beatles. Seeing them on Ed Sullivan as a young kid was exciting. As I got older, I got into Led Zeppelin, Buddy Rich, Joe Morello, Count Basie. I love big bands that swing hard. I love great rock, funk, R&B, latin, etc.. anything that has great rhythm. I spent years playing with various bands and doing gigs at parties. Now I teach and play in a Led Zep cover band in some local clubs around the NY area. I have a youtube channel with some drum covers. Just search on my name. I just bought a Ludwig Classic Maple kit that I'm real happy with.. I hope to play right up until the end just like Buddy did.
