MusicianView – Joe Barretta

By Chris Murphy

What do Discovery Channel, The Young and the Restless, NBC The Wall, Flipping Out, Toddlers and Tiaras and Ralph’s Transmission have in common? Did you know that Modesto musician Joe Barretta has written songs and jingles for all of these shows and more. He is also a multi-album producing singer and songwriter with songs that you will love and could be hits. Joe performs in a variety of bands in our community and I have been honored to perform with him as well. He is gearing up for an amazing showcase presenting the music from his two CDs Barretta and Not Satisfied. Please check these out at his website and really listen to the song “World’s Gone Crazy” and explore others. Joining Joe will be Steve Ashman, David Rogers, Patty Castillo Davis, Tim Allen and Gary Nelson.
Joe Barretta and Friends
Live at the Gallo Center Feb 8 8 pm
