Bill started playing rock and blues on the Hammond B3 organ on his first working gig with a bar band in a waterfront club in Troy, New York. He cut his teeth in this 9 piece band, learning from ear the styles of bands from BS&T and Chicago, to Earth, Wind and Fire, and the Ohio Players, and jam bands like The Allman Brothers, Santana, Tower of Power and Traffic.
A few bands later, Bill was touring the states with club and small venue acts. Being self taught, Bill picked up everything he could from the wide variety of the players he toured with, including jazz standards, jazz fusion, reggae, southern rock and blues, alternative rock, and Latin / salsa.
He came to Boston to attend Berklee and learn more about his trade from the best. Boston is now his home, where he has performed with such artists as Lalah Hathaway, Paula Cole, Lynn Fiddemont, Charles Pedegrew, James Cotton, James Montgomery and others. Bill’s passionate, energetic show can be seen in the North East US at many clubs and festivals.
