Joel - Bass

Joel is originally from the Maritimes. After moving to Toronto in 2008, he decided to start checking out local bands. He has over 20 years of experience playing the bass with a wide range of styles. His main influences are Steve Harris, Flea, Les Claypool, Jaco Pastorius, John Myung, and Billy Gould to name a few.

Joel played in a variety of bands over the years before joining High Octane in 2012, he has been with the band through a lot of changes including to their new name and lineup as The Yonge Originals!

He plays Music Man and Ibanez basses, through Mesa amplification and Boss effects.

Always locked in, keeping the rhythm section tight and grooving!
