Jose “NY Joe” Narvaez was born in the Bronx, New York to Puerto Rican natives. His social and cultural identity has been pivotal in shaping his music and style.
NY Joe got his start in music at a young age, joining his uncle’s band, Bobby Rodriguez Y La Compania on tour. As a behind-the-scenes stagehand, Joe would set the stage and prepare the sound for his uncle’s shows. Sometimes, he would get the chance to sing background vocals during performances. Traveling around the world on tour, this exposure fueled his passion for salsa and followed Joe into his professional career as a musician and performer, leading him to perform at salsa concerts, festivals, and private events with his 12-piece “Congatone” band all around Florida.
