Joe Cadena (aka East Chicago Joe), is a vocalist and guitarist from East Chicago, Indiana. Growing up around his talented and musical father, Joe began honing his musical skills. His earliest influence was Elvis Presley but it wasn't long before his interests in Soul, R+B and Motown captured his attention. After playing locally, Joe headed out on the road. After being hired ( and leading ) many show bands, he traveled across many parts of the country; from the Midwest to  the Northwest, California and finally to the Vegas "strip" where he performed at many packed houses. ( Joe has seen much of the country from the window of a moving vehicle! ) Eventually he made his way to the Northeast where he has been performing for many years. He makes his home in Connecticut where he lives with Debbie; his wife and confidante of many years.
