The very versatile Big Joe Maher has been making music since joining his high school jazz band, where such legendary jazz figures as Clark Terry, Urbie Green, Mudell Lowe and James Moody often sat in with the band, and served as inspirations. Growing up in a home where his father played Louis Jordan and other blues and jazz greats, Joe pursued jazz and blues at a time when his contemporaries sought out rock and roll. Joe's musical chops are undisputed; he regularly appears on music cruises and festivals all over the world.
