"Sometimes there’s a 'black dirt' Midwestern band working things out off the beaten path in the style of an Americana Byway. The Joe Stamm band, of central Illinois, is one such band." (Americana Highways, Apr. 9, 2018)
"["American Freeborn Kids"] is country music! If I could put myself in the chair of any radio program director across the country, I’d add this one to the play list the day it got to the station." (Countryschatter.com, Nov. 7, 2017)
The Joe Stamm Band (JSB) is a high energy country/rock group rooted in the black dirt of the American Midwest. Born & raised in the fields and fence rows of Central Illinois, Joe and the band play a soul pumping brand of country rock uniquely their own. JSB released an EP, “Feel Like Me”, in August of 2016 & follow-up single "Crow Creek" in June, 2017. Their single, "American Freeborn Kids," was lauded by Countryschatter.com as a song that should be on every radio program director's playlist across the country! More recently, JSB released, "Midwest Girl," (March 9, 2018) - a true anthem for Midwestern women - and "Fetch Me," which they released as a surprise for fans on Good Friday. JSB's music is laced with rural American imagery, hard-driving guitar, and songwriting that invites listeners into a deeply personal, authentic life experience.
Joe’s early life revolved primarily around football, earning a scholarship to play quarterback at Northern Illinois University. Injuries, however, cut a once promising career short and sent him searching - searching for a new identity, new hobbies, new pursuits and points of focus. He poured himself into academics, hunting, his childhood faith, partying & burning candles at both ends. Gradually, music and songwriting dominated Joe’s focus and stories began to emerge – not just his but yours, ours. Over time, a community of musicians & fans took notice. A band formed & audiences started filling venues.
Joe Stamm has now opened for acts such as Travis Tritt, Jerrod Niemann, Parmalee, the Kentucky Headhunters, JT Hodges, even sharing the bill with personal heroes Willie Nelson & Kris Kristofferson at the Tailgates & Tallboys Music Festival. Joe Stamm Band is anchored by long time members Joe Stamm at guitar & lead vocals, Danny Greuter on lead guitar, and Jon Byler Dann playing bass guitar and singing backup. Recent additions include Bruce Moser on drums and Dave Glover filling out the guitar section. Their focus is singular – play great music for as many people as possible. Joe acknowledges, “We started this thing in the grassroots of central Illinois. And we plan to stay firmly rooted. Roots and growth are dependent on one another. We trust our fans will keep us centered on both.”
Joe Stamm Band is proudly the official house band of 104.9 the Wolf and sponsored by Busch Light/Brewers Distributing.
