Joe Griffin has played in cover and original bands since junior high school, and spent much of the late 1980s and early 1990s on Michigan’s bar and fraternity-party circuits as lead guitarist and vocalist for the Others. In the mid-1990s he performed with the Chicago cover band Mr. Peabody. He has honed his stagecraft playing to every type of crowd, from intimate coffeehouse sets to the thousands of attendees of the 2005 and 2006 Chicago Auto Shows.
Joe composes music for film and theatre, and is part of the experimental duo Donny Who Loved Bowling. He currently performs around Chicago as a solo artist and as the guitarist for The Smoking Section.
