band member bios

Joe D'Alessandro


  My first remembrance of performing was playing “air guitar” and singing to such Rock beasts as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, Robin Trower, Uriah Heap, Edgar Winters, Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie as a teen. 

My 1streal band was Backwater from Southern MD. A Classic Rock, bluesy, mostly original, high-performance band. I had a hand in writing and performing more than a hundred original, kick-ass songs. I purchased my Gibson “Les Paul” In 1990, and it remains my only bloodless “lover.”

After Backwater dissolved, I had great times playing with “Urgent Sea”, “JoeyDalles and the Duzzin Others”, “Jimmy Rhythm and the Rhythm Breakers”, “The Grateful Feds,” and now “Bucket List.” This diversity in music genre has stoked my passion for dynamics, harmonies, and expressive riffs, in all of my performances and creations.
