Glossary: Joe Meo

Joe Meo is a multi-woodwind player who has had a wide-ranging musical career that seemed preordained – his first instrument (a clarinet) fell out of a car and landed across the street from his house when he was 8 years old! Joe has played in numerous rock, funk and jazz bands from New Jersey to Massachusetts and has toured the world with the Jeff Holmes Big Band and the Ed Palermo band and has played with the Tonight Show orchestra under Doc Severinsen.

Joe has played with many pop artists including Billy Vera, the Pointer Sisters, the Four Tops, the Temptations, and Johnny Mathis. His abilities on clarinet, sax and flute have allowed him to play in pit orchestras for Broadway productions. Lately he has added guitar and vocals to his musical arsenal. He also has a thriving teaching career, teaching privately and substituting in private and public schools. He is equally adept at all genres of music combining outstanding reading skills and the ability to improvise, allowing him to fit seamlessly into any musical situation.
