classic Gretsch drum-kit, he really shakes the house when fronting his
bands. So if youre looking for a musical experience that will
keep you wanting more come see Billy Rock!
upon hearing Billy Rock Blue sing, my goal was for us to perform together.
His is the strongest vocal instrument that it is my privilege to support
since backing headliners in the Los Angeles music industry. Accompanying
Billy requires a high level of attention to the detailed style he brings
to each song. Fortunately, he attracts top tier talent, each of whom
brings a wealth of experience to their individual roles in the ensemble.
And, it is fun. Performing with Billy is an excellent example of why
musicians like to say we are playing music. This is the stuff of great
entertainment for both artists and audience alike."
