Joe Collado - Percussionist

 Award Winning Percussionist and MDCPS Instructor, Joe Collado was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and of Puerto Rican parents. He has always tribute his musical style and his four successful Cd's to his life experiences and his musical upbringing. Originally a Motown lover and then personally witnessing and idolizing the Fania Salsa era musical groups and Superstar pioneers in Latin Rock such as Santana, Malo, Chicago, BeeGees, Micheal Jackson, Motown and others in NYC venues gave him a heart-full desire to express all those influences as well as his own life experiences thru his early instrumental training and playing style. Joe contributes his life changing successes during the time when he relocated to Miami, FL from the turmoil streets of Brooklyn, NY.  He was able to better himself personally and professionally toward a renewed lifetime of goals using his Multi God given talents. Musically, joining forces with the fame underground Angel Canales Orchestra powered his path. Ever since he has played with the likes of Giovanni Hildalgo, Herman Olivera(Eddie Palmieri) Henry Fiol, Tito Puente Jr, Jose Fajardo jr, Frankie Ruiz jr etc...  Joe was also awarded the Best Percussionist in Miami in 2009, before his debut Cd called "Solo Joe". Since then three additional and very successful original Latin Groove Style cds have been released along with the success of his personal group, "LATIN GROOVE PROJECT".
