Hi, I am known here as joelheck,(which is just part of my email address) the act is now solo as Joel - The Difference. The Difference is the old band I played in back up North many years ago.
Been Playing Since
I started off around 1962, playing Guitar, Bass, Keyboards and Sang with a number of groups for 18 years, paused for Corporate life, about 15 years and now back at it strong for the last 6 years on Vocals and Guitar.
Joel - The Difference
I have gone back to being a Solo act for the past few years doing Vocals and playing Guitar with backing tracks. I cover a wide variety of music, mostly Oldies, Standards, Light Jazz, Tropical-Rock and Country. Although its a bit more work as a Solo, the variety of music is great and I am able to keep it constantly moving with playing several local restaurants, events and the Parrot Heads Club for over 6 years, covering the hits of Jimmy Buffet and a Caribbean flavor, Trop-Rock as it is sometimes called. Either way, as former lead singer for previous bands, I keep busy, and have a great time entertaining around town.
