The Billy Blues Band was started in the fall of 2016 to entertain with contemporary blues rock, rock & roll and funky soul at private parties, weddings, festivals and upscale venues in the general Boise, Idaho area. The band features vocalists Michele Eastland and Becky Blake who blast out their songs and control the stage with their energy. Both Michele and Becky are professional singers and actresses, which accounts for their dynamic stage presence. Lead guitarist, Joe Ryan, the most recent member to join to the band, plays with the soul of a blues master with his heart felt riffs, as well as singing vocals. The band organizer-manager, vocalist and rhythm guitarist, Billy Arnold promotes a new generation of blues rock, along with the classics in both blues, rock and funky soul. The blues band also includes solid rhythms by Bass Player, Terry Jones and Drummer, Brian Sweet. Dale Massee, our blues harp, keyboard player, and vocalist, has been playing music in Boise bands for years. Local great and well known sax players include Joe Young and Bruce Guy, both of whole are Billy Blues Band members, playing with us based on their availability. Book us if you enjoy listening and dancing to high energy blues mixed with a little rock and soul! We are a performance show band to which you will love to dance, dance, dance. The Billy Blucoustics Band with Becky Blake was formed in late 2018 to play “listening” oriented venues where fans want toned’ down acoustic blues and acoustically adapted rock songs are of interest to our fans (but you can dance to many of our acoustic songs also).
