Joel Kuether started out his musical endeavors at the age of 8 years old.  His father, Fredrick Kuether, who was an accomplished musician, taught Joel the piano and shortly after that Joel took up the guitar.  At the age of 16, Joel was playing professionally in night clubs with the consent of his parents.  At the age 18 Joel traveled extensively full-time from Los Angeles to New York. Joel has played with members from Iron Butterfly, Wishbone Ash, The Spencer Davis Group and opened for such acts as Cheap Trick, Danny and the Juniors, The Knack, REO Speedwagon, Black Oak Arkansas, Tommy James and the Shondells, The Rascals and many more.Joel settled back in Wisconsin and raised his family, which includes his wife Mary and daughter Anna.  In 2011, Joel and Paul Herrmann put together a duo acoustic band playing many festivals and local hot spots around southeastern Wisconsin.  Then in 2012, Doug Grube joined the band to make it what is now The Joel Kuether Trio.   After playing for the last 51 years, you can see Joel certainly loves playing his music!
