Inside MusiCast - Episode 176 (Joe Vana of Mecca)
When he was only 13 years old, Joe Vanas life was forever changed through a chance meeting with Survivors Jim Peterik. As Joe will tell you, Jim taught him everything he knew about music and the music business. But it wasnt until he was 28 years old that he discovered his voice, but when he did he became Peters in-house demo singer for many years. Joe and Jim eventually created a band called Project Voyager, which ultimately became Mecca. In 2002, Mecca released its debut, self-titled album that featured David Hungate on bass, Shannon Forrest on drums, Fergie Frederiksen and Joe on vocals, Mark Aquino on guitars and Jimmy Nichols on keyboards. Nine years later, Mecca released their follow-up titled Undeniable and on October 14 of this year, Mecca released the bands third album Mecca III. Here to discuss the new album is Meccas Joe Vana.
