Billy’s music is like a trip to Key West via “The Twilight Zone”.
Comfortable with any sized crowd, his specialty is intimate venues (decks, docks, private parties, house concerts ) where he can connect with the audience.
His performance philosophy is “It’s all about the audience... whatever gets them going” as he draws from a large repertoire of oldies, classic rock, trop rock beach songs, and his own unique original material.
An unabashed Boomer, Billy's original music resonates, involves and entertains, spanning emotionally from heartfelt to hilarious. His choice of performance cover songs is like the soundtrack of a generation. Material from Berry to Buffett to Beatles to Creedence is chosen for maximum audience participation.
His original music is recorded on three CDs: "What's So Bad About Feelin' Good?", "The Diva of the Silver Top Diner" & "Gumbo Beach".
Billy has been performing for over 25 years on Rhode Island waterfronts and regionally in venues like Boston's Dick’s Last Resort and The House of Blues in L.A. He originally sang in a cappella doo-wop quartet The Hudsons, and is front man for Classic Rock band New York Minute, in addition to solo appearances.
He is a published ASCAP songwriter with a catalog of over 40 original songs and is an active member of the Rhode Island Songwriters Association,With music inspired by the attitude of Jimmy Buffett, the wit of Shel Silverstein and the eccentricity of John Prine, few people can connect with an audience Billy Mitchell.
