Welcome to the web site of Trenton, New Jersey's award winning, original and historic band, Joe Zook & Blues DeLuxe.
Here on the site, you'll find our schedule, some photos, links to videos and music, and get an idea what it's like to play music that nobody can ignore!
When we say nobody can ignore, we also mean to say "can ignore for four decades", while we're at it. That's right, this little band, with some big and some small changes, has been bluesin' and rockin' since 1976! And not done yet.
Led by legendary New Jersey Blues Hall of Fame singer, songwriter, guitarist and band leader Joe "Zook" Zuccarello, Blues DeLuxe has lived on the small stages of local pubs, and joined world famous artists on the giant stages of festivals and concert halls.
The band's different lineups have shared the stage with the royalty of the Blues.You've heard their names: Muddy Waters, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy, James Cotton, Sam and Dave, Junior Walker & The Allstars, The Nighthawks, and so many more.
Joe Zook is joined onstage by the area's premiere talent: the core of Blues DeLuxe, bassist and singer Billy Holt, and monster blues drummer Jeff Snelson. Depending on the size of the venue, Joe tunes up Blues DeLuxe with horn players, great keyboardists, and the occasional down and dirty blues harp.
