Joe Dyson


Joe Dyson has established himself as one of the most versatile drummers in music. Some of today’s masters of the music refer to him as one of the go-to drummers on the scene, performing with a wide range of artists. Born and raised in New Orleans, Joe started playing music in his family's church at just two years old. After being noticed for his peculiar talent, Joe was placed in the Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong Summer Jazz Camp where he was shadowed by the late, great clarinetist Alvin Batiste, and his longtime bandleader and mentor, alto saxophonist and NEA Jazz Master Donald Harrison. He went on to graduate from the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA), and earned a Presidential Scholarship to his alma mater Berklee College of Music.
