 Biography of A Star In The Making

This Bio is currently being updated and will be posted upon completion

Joe began performing in grade school and by the time he was in his junior year at Olathe North High School, he was being booked as a singer, impressionist, model, actor, television and stage personality.

Joe didn't settle for this as having accomplished enough. He went on to win several major dance contests with his wife, Tamra Holden/Tinoco.

Think that's enough? No way! Joe played the part of a young defendant in the movie Mr. and Mrs. Bridge starring Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. Joe said of the movie, "I enjoyed working with Paul Newman.

His first question to me was, 'What is there to do in Kansas City?'" Joe obviously didn't have a problem finding things to occupy his time! Joe also played a role in Stephan King's thriller "Sometimes They Come Back" as well as the film, "Kansas City".

So what about Joe the singer/songwriter? Funny you should ask! Joe went to Branson, Mo. after winning a talent contest at Tony James' "That's Show Biz Contest". He spent 4 years in Branson opening for stars such as Moe Bandy. Joe said he became convinced that show business was his calling when he was the opening act for Moe Bandy.

From Branson, Joe was called to Nashville, TN. by Opryland to appear in the production, "Hear America Singing" and also appeared on the "Grand Ole Opry" show. Since 1988 Joe has opened for Clint Black, Johnny Rodriquez, Lorrie Morgan, Larry Boone, Ronnie McDowell, Jerry Reed, Freddy Fender, Vern Gosdin, Skip Ewing, Michael Twitty, Barbara Fairchild, Cristy Lane, Dan Seals, Marty Haggard, Mel McDaniel, Freddy Hart, Stonewall Jackson, Melba Montgomery, Jeannie Seely, John Conlee, Faron Young, Ferlin Husky, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Ray Price, Connie Smith, Justin Tubb and Marvin Rainwater....just to mention a few! His favorite opening act was for Ronnie McDowell. Joe opened several times for Ronnie and Ronnie once told him, "One of these days I'll see you on the Country Music Academy awards show." Ronnie's well deserved praise served to motivate Joe even more.

Joe wore many hats in Nashville aside from his Stetson. He performed several times at the Nashville Palace "Where the Stars are Born" in 1992 where he also worked as a bus-boy. He appeared in IFCO FAN FAIR show cases in '90, '92, "94 and '96 and did a benefit at the Hall Of Fame In Nashville in 1993.

What are Joe's plans for the future? You name it, Joe's gonna try it and be a success at it! He has recently signed with Disney to perform on the new Disney Cruise Ship. Tamra is also signed up with Disney and will be going on the cruise as part of the Disney Show. Tamra has been a backup singer for many big names in country music. Joe was also called upon for a starring role in an up coming movie, "The Sonoran Ghost". The movie is based on the true story of a legendary Spanish hero.

With all this in store, how will Joe ever find time to make his music? Not to worry. Anyone who can accomplish all of the above and more in such a short time, will be wowing his fans with a released recording in no time. Talent and energy like this just can't fail!
