Introduction: I am pleased to offer a wide variety of music, experience, and the desire to create the perfect atmosphere for your event, restaurant/lounge, or House Party. My music/style is easy to listen to. With over 700 songs in the repertoire that I cover, you’ll be hard-pressed to not find some of your favorites. I often use professionally recorded backline instruments which enable me to sound like a complete band for a fraction of the cost! My services are very personal, flexible, reasonably priced & don’t forget to ask about discount pricing for Raleigh area House Parties. I am happy to provide audio/video samples along with plenty of recent customer reviews. I am fully vaccinated and boosted for COVID-19.

Bill showed up to our event with plenty of time to set up and practice. He remained optimistic during a quick, heavy downpour. He started promptly and had a great entertaining flow. He interacted with the guests and even provided an extra microphone we could use for toasting. Although we began cleaning up early, he played his entire set which made that tedious process a little more enjoyable. I would definitely hire Bill again. He just has a great musical style.

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.

FAQs

  • 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?

    25+ Years of performing live.
