Billy was great! He entertained both kids and adults at our party. He knew when to step in and "entertain" and when to sit back and play quietly. We would definitely use him again. He is very talented.

Just outside the San Francisco Bay Area, Billy grew up playing clubs in the city before he was fifteen. Borrowing dad's "Big Yellow" station wagon and loading it up for the night, every weekend was a gig.
Still in high school, Billy and "The Field Mice" captured a young hearted audience while playing shoulder to shoulder with The Ramones, Chris Isaak and Drama Rama to name a few of their 80's headliners. "We opened for a lot of names...before the earthquake!"
Suddenly, these kids found themselves recording their hits "Coconut Bikini" and "Happy with You" at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, studio B.. where Jefferson Starship and John Forgerty's cigarettes still smouldered in the ashtray. Before leaving for Los Angeles Billy had established a strong musical presence with his punk band "Blind Acceptance" and "The Field Mice".
In between touring and opening for Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Billy wrote and performed music for television commercials and independent films. "I've written and performed pop, punk, country, rap, jazz, and every style under the sun."
Many bands came-a-calling for him to play bass and sing, while Billy was quietly recording song after song in his own studio. "I did it all, the Sunset Strip, a regular at Universal Bar and Grill, The Fox And Hounds and even Ernies Taco House. On weekends he was jamming with Devo drummer Alan Myers and Alanis Morissette's Matt Laug, all the while developing his own sound of America. "People say my music brings them home... and this is a big country."
Billy just finished recording his new album "Between Saints and Cigarettes" with Grammy Award winning producer Marc DeSisto. "it's humbling to walk in the footsteps of Don Henley and Melissa Esthridge.
Billy is currently in the studio working on his New Record, but if ya get the chance Take It!! and see him play LIVE!
