Thumbtack only allows you to select three qualities, but Bill really encapsulates all of the astounding qualities you look for in hiring entertainment. We hired Bill for a July 3rd party for the neighborhood and everyone had a ball! Bill was very receptive to all our specific needs, and his set list is immeasurable. Can't recommend enough! Thank you again Bill for the wonderful time~ Friends from Auburn Village

A very entertaining evening with a good mix of well know songs. Good enough to get several listeners up to dance and sing along. He even had a mic available for them to enhance the experience.

I have known Bill for years and he’s such a good friend but that’s not the reason I want to give him an outstanding review on all of the songs he performs. He accepts honest Comments, adjusts to the crowd he plays to and always gives his all. You can definitely tell that he loves what he’s doing. Keep doing what you’re doing Bill!❤️

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I really try to meet the needs of my customers and work within their budgets. I do offer value pricing for regular, reoccurring bookings as well as events under 25 people.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    It's all about providing the moment(s) they are looking for. I ask them to 'paint a picture' of how their ideal event would be. If there are some favorite artists or songs desired I do my very best to include in my performance.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    35+ Years of performing live.

Not what you’re looking for?
