Joe Stamm Band
February 19th, 2019
Stamm began performing in dive bars, for free, with nothing but his acoustic guitar in 2007. These days, venues don’t mind sending him, and the 5-piece band he formed, a few bucks to play. The Joe Stamm Band – consisting of Dan Greuter on lead guitar, Jon Byler Dann on bass and background vocals, Cory Petty on guitar and Michael “Iggy” Dickson on drums - continues to extend their reach and fan-base, having released a music video to national TV and anticipating an album release sometime in 2015. Has the Joe Stamm Band “made it”? – “No,” Stamm answers, “and what does even mean? I’m not concerned with ‘making it’ or topping any charts or moving to Nashville. We just want to make the best music we possibly can, inspiring and entertaining the people around us right now. If we keep doing it right, the people who identify with us and our music will continue to grow in number and enthusiasm. That’s our goal. That’s what we want. We started this thing in the grassroots of central Illinois. And we plan to stay firmly rooted. Roots and growth are dependent on one another. We trust our fans will keep us centered on both.”
