ABOUT

I have played clubs and bars in Texas with two bands, and now am interested in occasional local gigs, playing classic blues, contemporary blues-rock with some soul, as well as blues originals.

The Billy Blues Band featuring Michele Eastland and Becky Blake has been practicing weekly with three vocalists--two females, rhythm guitar/male vocalist, lead guitarists, bass, sax, keys and drums. We are ready to play and looking for a few fun and paid gigs. We are playing the Sapphire Room for a Fat Tuesday benefit show for the Boise Blues Society.
