The Band

Without these guys it would never work...

Joe's Current band is as follows...

Pete Brown – Guitar, Mandolin, Ukulele & Vocals
Phil Capaldi – Drums, Percussion & Vocals
Mike Nichols – Bass Guitar, Double Bass & Vocals
Ben Lee – Guitar, Mandolin, Ukulele & Vocals

Joe’s longest serving band line up was together from 1991 for 17 years, an enviable feat in the history of Rock & Roll, and but for the tragic loss of both Neil R. Gauntlett and Dave Rico Nilo who passed away within months of each other in 2009 would have still been going strong today. Phil Capaldi was the other member of that long serving unit which was augmented in 2006 by Joe's son Pete Brown.

We feel it important to pay tribute to our brothers Neil & Rico and so have included them here in the band listing, we still miss them both greatly…
