One of Bissonette's first recordings is Brandon Field's The Other Side of the Story in 1985. It featured David Garfield on keyboards. A few years later Bissonette would start playing shows with Field, Garfield and Steve Lukather on guitar and with John Peña on bass as Los Lobotomys. These shows took place at the Baked Potato, a jazz club and restaurant in Los Angeles, California, playing rock, Latin, jazz and more.
In 1990 and 1993, Bissonette released drum videos Private Lesson and Playing, Reading & Soloing with a Band, respectively. Private Lesson covers a variety of topics including double bass drumming, rudiments (featuring a backsticking technique from the snare drum solo Tornado by Mitch Markovich), playing with a metronome, brushes, and more.
Bissonette played drums on Santana's multi-platinum album Supernatural.
In 2007, Bissonette recorded on the album La La Land by Daniel Glen Timms.
