Gypsies Drummer Joe Makowski was born in the Fall of 1992 and grew up in Marysville, MI.
Joe began banging the drums at the ripe old age of seven after watching his Uncles jam to old blues and rock tunes at family holiday gatherings. He is a true student and aficionado of a wide spectrum of music. On an average day Joe might listen to Jim Croce, Loggins and Messina, Black Sabbath, Alice In Chains, Primus, Buddy Rich, Tower of Power, Van Morrison, or Led Zeppelin.
He played percussion through his school years in concert band, marching band and also jazz band. Joe says “I always knew I wanted to play with a rock band, but never knew the right people, or was in the right place to do it--- until I met Caleb and Steve in a bar in Port Huron and we clicked. Really found my way after that. And so here we are!”
