Joe Dalimonte -
Joe started playing guitar at the age of 13 after
receiving a Yamaha electric guitar for Christmas
from his family. His guitar obsession began. Early
influeces included many rock guitarists, including:
Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Warren DiMartini and many
more; this inspired long practices, some lasting
up to 10 hours a day. Pursued rock guitar with local
hard rock and metal cover bands. Ricky Skaggs' "Country
Boy" and Vince Gill's "Liza Jane"
changed Joe's rock pursuit to country. He performed
cover songs for line dancing crowds for practice
and exposure to this new genre. Sean Patick McGraw
invited Joe to fill in for a show in 2005 that turned
into a full time position as guitarist and band
leader for "The Sean Patrick McGraw Band".
Opened for Toby Keith and Trace Adkins
on the America's Toughest Tour in 2009 and
performed on the Jimmy
Kimmel Live show in July 2009. Also
performed at the PBR Finals and the National
Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. In early 2010, the
band opened the Jagermeister Country Tour
with Eric Church and Josh Thompson.
Joe has been teaching lessons for over 12 years.
