JoeKer (Joe Hower)

The guy putting the ‘thump in your rump’ for the Westside Soul Surfers is JoeKer who joined the band playing bass at the beginning of 2018. He started playing music in 1966 at school studying piano, guitar and trombone.  He began performing professionally in 1975 while in high school with various bands in West Michigan and spent several summers with the Jazz Bands at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp.  After school JoeKer continued playing with local bands in the West Michigan, Idaho, and Seattle areas. Always quick with a bad joke, he’s sure to engage you and will never leave a room the way it was when he entered! (Is that a good thing?)  Surf’s up!
