JOEY AMENTA is the lead guitarist and also a vocalist and songwriter with TASTE

Joey started his career with TASTE aged 15 and has since played with every major band in Australia as guitar for hire but his love is still his first band TASTE.

After TASTE disbanded, Joey went on to play with the cream of Australian Music

including Russell Morris, Darryl Cotton, Wendy and the Rockets with Wendy Stapleton, Moving Pictures (What About Me?),  Dear Enemy (Computer One), and Uncanny X Men

Coming back to TASTE, his first band and first love, with lifelong friends has been a dream for Joey

“It means the world to me,” he says. 

When he was with TASTE, Joey played Gibson Les Pauls and then went to the Fender Stratocaster

He currently plays hand made Australian DELM guitars, which he believes are a cut above the rest.

“Read What The Press Has To Say About TASTE”

“The story of TASTE is a legend from the lost pages of Australian rock’n’roll: the meteoric rise and fall of a mid’70s glam-rock quartet with a fiery reputation among such lofty peers as AC/DC, Queen, Suzie Quatro and the Sweet.  But history can wait.  Fast forward 40 years and Life On Earth is a document of rare craft reunited with newfound passion. An album for our times.”

Michael Dwyer

Australian Music Scene

“Thunderous epic sound driven by songs written from thought provoking stories and clearly not made to appease a record company. Everytime I listen to ‘Life On Earth’ I feel like I am witnessing a huge rock operatic spectacular on a giant theatrical stage. It’s sure to leave a great Taste in your ears…”

Neil Bartlett

Aussie Radio Show

“They’re back, with this epic rock song full of explosive vocals, stark guitar harmonies and head banging solos!”
David Bruce

Australian Musician Network

“If Queen & Metallica Had a bastard baby it would be called TASTE”

Brian Mannix

Uncanny Xmen

“Unlike other classic rock projects, TASTE are the real deal, and their groovy vibe feels just as at home in the post-modern dystopia of the film clip as it would at the grassy countryside of Woodstock. Where other bands of their ilk today may find themselves lost to nostalgia or faded by the plethora of modern recording processes, TASTE strut the tightrope with confidence and poise that does their legacy justice.”

Jordan Sibberas

Music Injection

“I Am God is a stunning post-apocalyptic vision stalking the havoc of a world in flames.”
Kate Eardley


“It blasts through with guitar riffs that essentially urge you to burst into a good old fashioned mosh pit.”
John Ardic

Rave It Up

In the 70s there were no radio networks, no Internet and no 24-hour music television. Bands made their name by where they toured and lifted their profile city by city until the songs made the radio. Taste in the 21st century is one tough rock band.

Paul Cashmere

Noise 11

“It has everything a Metallica fan of the late ’80s could want – shredding solos, deep, crunching rhythmic chords and eerily airy vocals that descend into well-tuned yelling.”
Editor's Playlist

Mint Magazine

“Seventies Style lofty ambition – with warts and all attitude!

Rolling Stone

“A breath of fresh air in a stale and somewhat contrived Rock market.”

Rob Manser

PopRepublic TV

“Queen meets Zeppelin, with just the right amount of Spinal Tap.”

Jeff Jenkins

Mag Review

“They Rock nice and hard!

Dylan Lewis

Nova 100

“You’ll be hearing this a lot on Radio.”

Richard Stubbs

“Timeless Rawk Vibe that will never go out of Style.”

The Music Network

“Distinctive ’70s sound with guitar echoes of Led Zeppellin’s Jimmy Page and Queen.”

Leon Gettler

The Age
