    Biography :

    Joe Zisa was born and raised in Paterson, New Jersey.  At the age of 12, Joe began to study sax and clarinet, and consequently, music became a huge influence in his life. He started playing with several neighborhood bands.

       

    In 1958 Joe joined George Gerro, who had a band called “The Emeralds”. He filled in for the sax player. George then realized that Joe not only played sax, but he also sang lead. Joe soon became a permanent member of the band.

    In 1960 Joe and  Sal Sellitto joined “The Supremes," a vocal group who performed at the same venues with “The Emeralds”.  In 1963 Joe formed “Joey & the Lexingtons” and was signed with Dunes record label. They had a pick hit with a song called “Bobbie”, which made the Top 1000 Doo Wop Hits.
