Groove – Episode #64: Joe Ayoub
You have to be the kind of player who can play just about anything to get the gig in the American Idol house band. From genre-jumping to knowing how to read music effortlessly, to figuring out the right tones and instruments to make the singers sound their best (which is more pressure than you might imagine). It’s the kind of job where Joe Ayoub shines.
The Los Angeles-based bass player, writer, producer, arranger, and musical director can (and has) done it all. Prior to being in the American Idol house band, Joe earned his stripes laying it down for the likes of Enrique Iglesias, Leonard Cohen, Shakira, Liz Phair and many more (including The Carson Daly House Band).
He’s frequently been featured on No Treble for playing in videos with Pomplamoose and the amazing covers that Scary Pockets continue to deliver. If you have not spent any time checking out Joe, here’s your chance.
