Popular Utah Classic Rock Band

When Chris, Vic, and Marv all moved to a cozy little community in Draper, Utah, a few years back, a casual conversation revealed that Chris was a pro guitarist, Vic was a bass player, and Marv was a drummer.

An association party was their first gig together, and they simply couldn’t let the project rest. As a result, Joe Friday was born, the Utah classic rock band that provides more fun than Jack Webb and Harry Morgan ever dreamed possible. In fact, it’s their tradition to open each performance by playing the Dragnet Theme Song, a tribute to Joe Friday. They produce a great sound that’s a lot like Gerry and the Pacemakers, fun and energetic.
