JDT - Bio
Joey DiTullio (JDT) is a budding, Jersey-born rock star, boasting huge guitar tones and a vintage rock and roll sound.

Recording and performing with the likes of David Uosikkinen (The Hooters), Paul Hammond (Get the Led Out), Kenny Aaronson (Joan Jett; The Yardbirds), and Phil Nicolo (Studio 4) has given Joey front line experience as he looks to bolster his own project.
Back in early 2015, Joey cultivated his vision and created JDT, an all original, riff-oriented rock band, blasting a fresh new sound with Joey behind the wheel. Joey is always working on new material, and the band's live performances are both unpredictable and unforgettable. Joey has hand-picked each member of the band to create a musical chemistry that makes every show a unique experience.
The excitement surrounding JDT is palpable, as people anxiously await their every move. The JDT team works around the clock to bring rock and roll back to the forefront while expanding their fan base to a higher level.
