The Billy Blues Band was formed in February of 2017 in the Boise, Idaho area. This refined group of talented musicians features vocalists Michele Eastland and Becky Blake, who control the stage with their presence and energy. Lead guitarist, Dana DeVice, plays with the soul of a blues master with his heartfelt riffs. The band’s organizer/manager, vocalist and rhythm guitarist, Billy Arnold, promotes and espouses a new generation of blues rock, along with the classics in both blues and soul. The eight-piece ensemble also includes alto and baritone sax player, John Paul Crank; solid rhythms by bassist, Terry Jones; drummer, Brian Sweet; and our newest member, Jack Hale, on keyboards.
In a recent interview, bandleader Billy Arnold was asked why his group was an eight-piece ensemble, as opposed to a traditional four- or five-piece. “The most obvious advantage is the great deal of diversity, depth, and song variety that this size band can provide. With two talented female vocalists, one of who also plays the trumpet, they provide room for a truly full sound with depth and richness, as well as the ability to perform a variety of songs.” Read the entire interview with Arnold in Indie Pulse Music, here.
A great spirit, both creative and personal, permeates the Billy Blues Band. “I would say our band is a group of musicians who have become friends, have fun practicing, playing and entertaining,” says Arnold. “We want to be an entertaining, fun band that is known for playing dance music that embraces the best of contemporary blues and blues rock. We want to earn sufficient income at our shows to know that we are genuinely appreciated for our performances, at local upscale venues, concerts and festivals around the Boise and Treasure Valley area.”
