About Joe Gittleman

Associate Professor Joe Gittleman is perhaps best known as the founder and bass player of the well-known Boston band The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. He and his plaid-clad childhood pals formed the Bosstones with a workman-like approach and built a dedicated fan base through years of hard touring all over the world. Their fifth studio album included the number one, Gittleman-penned hit “The Impression That I Get” and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Professor Gittleman has also worked in A&R, as a tour manager, songwriter, and producer of albums and film projects including the platinum-selling Flogging Molly documentary film Whiskey on a Sunday
