 Between the final for best vocalist in the “Battle of the Bands” early in his career, to the Vocals and Guitars with Handle With Care, there have been too many gigs to mention. The early years were dominated by performing in dance and music, before the Rock Scene took over.

As Guitar/Vocalist in “Tarquin”, there was success with the chart hit “Summer Ladies” and “Joker”. Six years on the road with “The Gangsters” saw single and EP releases, before three years in England. A return to Oz saw a busy schedule with production shows “Twist and Shout”, “Get Ready”, and “Daze Of Woodstock”, through to the end of the noughties, including a gig doing backing vocals with Joe Walsh. All this has led to a repertoire of around 300 songs, many self written.Now with the exciting and challenging Show “Handle With Care”, it’s almost full circle, playing music from the artists that influenced the formative years. As an Audio Engineer and Lighting Designer, there are few aspects of the Entertainment Industry that Billy has not been involved in.
