Killer Joe and Lido Soul

Killer Joe, inducted into the
NY BLUES HALL OF FAME IN 2012, Joe was born In Queens, New York in 1963 and started playing the harp at the age of 15. Since then he has developed into one of the hardest hitting, in your face performers of the Tri State area. Killer Joe and his band, the Lido Soul Revue, have been described by many as the most energetic rock ‘n’ roll, blues ‘n’ soul band around. But make no mistake, this is not a traditional “oldies” show by any stretch of the imagination. Killer and the Lido Soul Revue brings this music into the modern day with a show that serves as a testament to the timelessness of these early rock classics as the band performs with the same charged spirit and energy as found in the original recordings of the songs on their set list.

Killer Joe’s influences range from Chuck Berry and Otis Redding to Motown and anything in between. His first CD, “Born to Cruise”, consists of foot stomping, soulful songs that make you want to roll the windows down, take the top off and go. This CD was a tribute to the style of music that they play, receiving rave reviews from many radio stations and the recording industry. In addition to jamming with Chuck Berry, Sam Moore, and John Cafferty, he has played in many venues in Manhattan, New Jersey, Staten Island, and Long Island. He and the Lido Soul Revue performed at the Hard Rock Café of Manhattan for World Hunger Year, the Gramacy Live Nation Theater of Manhattan, Long Beach (in honor of the Wounded Warriors), and alongside Vincent Pastore in Pastore’s “Fun House Show”. Killer Joe also performed at the “Under the Stars Concert Series”, opening for Gary U.S. Bonds; and jammed on stage recently with Tony Orlando in a concert.

In addition, Killer Joe has been instrumental in raising money for many charities: the Juvenile Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, Salvation Army, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Muscular Distrophy Association and many charitable organizations to benefit children. Killer Joe also helped to raise $100,000 for the victims of the 2005 Katrina Disaster.

Killer Joe and the Lido Soul Revue are currently going on the road to venues in Long Island, Manhattan, New Jersey, Staten Island, Rhode Island and Connecticut.
