Joe Ascione

Joe Ascione knew music would be his love from an early age. The eastern Long Island native was first drawn to the drums at the age of four, when he saw his cousin Stephen DeLauro playing on a drum set in Brooklyn. Ascione has played professional gigs since he was 12, and spent his late teens working as a roadie for Buddy Rich.

Before embarking on a professional career in music, Ascione earned a B.S. in engineering and then studied philosophy, psychology, and theology in a Catholic seminary.
