Joey is a New Jersey native, born and raised in Ocean Township. He began studying the guitar at the ripe age of 10, but didn't become serious until the first time he heard Led Zeppelin IV blaring out of his dad's car stereo. From then on, he played in a series of cover bands including his great friends The Whatnots, who are still known to gig around the Shore bar scene. He met the other members of Burne Holiday through an organization that was attempting to end women's suffrage. When the four found out what "suffrage"meant, they got the hell out of there. His favorite food is buffalo wings, his spirit animal is a sloth, and he loves classic movies (especially those involving Clint Eastwood). Among his many favorite artists are Jimi Hendrix, Radiohead, and Prince.
