Joe VanderBroek

Michael Spencer is the drummer in the Michigan Celtic band, CrossBow

Joe’s musical journey started with 14 years of classical violin and bass performance. After picking up the bass guitar and performing in jazz concerts, and other various settings, he was asked by childhood friend and CrossBow member, Adam McMillan, to take a “craic” at Celtic music and fill in for the band for a show. That was back in 2017 and we haven’t forgotten what a great job he did or how well and naturally he fit in with the group. Outside of music, Joe is an avid outdoorsman and a freelancing photographer.
