      Get to know Joshua Van Ness

      I am a lifelong lover of music.  I started playing the drums around the age of 10 and received my first drum set for Christmas at the age of 12.  I played drums and percussion throughout my academic life, specializing in jazz, marching band and choir.  Around the age of 17, I started playing guitar too. I've now been performing professionally for more than 25 years!

      When I'm not making music, I enjoy time with my daughter, Ciara and my girlfriend, Jamie.  We live together in East Brunswick, NJ.  I'm also a long-suffering Mets fan!  "You gotta believe"!"
