Billy Michael

Voted Danbury’s number 1 solo artist! Co-founder  of the J&B Band and solo artist in his own right, Billy Michael has  been marching to the beat of popular music from a very early age.

When  he was just five years-old, Billy could be heard belting out Ray  Charles’ hit “You Don’t Know Me,” which his mother, Dolores, had taught  him. In the first grade he was known as “Little Elvis.” The nuns took  him from classroom to classroom to sing Elvis’ 1956 hit song “Teddy  Bear” for the other students. In high school, he started his first band,  Downhill Tangerine, performing songs by Procol Harem and The Doors.


As  a solo act, Billy performs a variety of popular music from all eras:  The Beatles, The Kinks, Frank Sinatra, Willie Nelson, Nat King Cole,  James Taylor, Billy Joel, Lovin’ Spoonful – and many more. You can hear  Billy Michael perform nightly at area venues, where he brings the  concept of audience participation to a whole new level. Among the many  themes are Open Mike, Beatnik Night, Mardi Gras, to name a few. Billy  often regales enthusiastic vacationers at the exclusive Club Getaway in  Kent, Connecticut.

In  addition to fronting the J&B Band, Billy is the leader of several  other groups – Jazz For Juniors/All That Jazz and the ever-popular  Fiddlers’ Brawl. Both groups appear regularly in the Danbury area.

Billy  also provides tasteful guitar accompaniment and background vocals for  local singers such as Erin and Laura Volpintesta (Wild Honey) and jazz  vocalist Cheryl Boyd.

With Billy Michael, there’s always  something for everybody! And, who knows? Some night he may just call you  up onstage to sing a Dusty Springfield tune…
