Joe Quintana is the quintessential journeyman guitarist. Every weekend (and many week nights) he sets up his equipment, tunes his instrument, and performs a full repertoire of music for the local patrons, be they a handful or a hundred. This routine over time blends into a lifetime of self discovery, immersion and dedication to craft.
Quintana was born in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico on August 21, 1969, raised in a bicultural environment as a military brat, which is a blessing for a young musician absorbing so many influences that come with international travel. His parents being appreciative of all musical genres and styles always made sure that Joe and his brothers (also musicians) were exposed to music at home.
