About
Billy began playing guitar at ten. His first paid gig was in France, as a teenager. Though he was born in the U.S., he did a bit of world travelling thanks to his adventurous mother, Noelle. From France the family emmigrated to Australia where Billy was spotted by a talent agent and cast in the stage production of The Rocky Horror Show. After a year run with Australia's beloved and award-winning top entertainer, Reg Livermore, Billy decided to head back to the States to pursue a career in music. Teaming up with singer/songwriter, Brian Lambert, he worked his trade for several years in the Los Angeles area. Taking the advice of his friend Christopher Taylor, he visited the Gold Country of Northern California. Ready to leave the big city anyway, Bensing instantly made plans to relocate to the beautiful foothills of Grass Valley. He has been there ever since, working full-time as a performer and guitar instructor.

I have never hired a musician and had no idea what I was doing. Gigmasters sent out notice and I received several quotes. After talking with Billy i hired him for our memorial. Billy could not have been more accommodating. We talked several times prior to the event to work out all details,He sang all requested songs + suggested an appropriate song he had written. He was on time, polite, allowed me to use his sound system. Would use him again and recommend him to others

Billy Bensing was fantastic - we got many comments from our guests at how much they enjoyed the music. He was there early, set up and ready to go for the start of our event. Billy also accommodated our request to start outside on the patio for our cocktail hour, then move his equipment inside to continue playing during dinner. I would absolutely recommend him for your event!
