Willie Smith is quite simply the best Blues-based band to come out of CT - ever. In their late 70's early 80's heyday, I saw them a bunch of times in many different places and was never disappointed. The reunion shows (believe it or not) are even better! These guys just flat kick ass on a song list whose variety is mind-boggling. Where else are you going to hear covers of Little Walter, Jimmy Lunceford, Elvis, Huey 'Piano' Smith, Sam The Sham, Jimmy Rogers and Roy Head in the same set? Played with style and drive to spare, too. Don't miss them the next time they have a reunion show." The 6-piece lineup for reunion gigs and private parties: Bruce Smith - Vocals, drums Major charisma; smooth as silk vocals. Bruce William (B. Willie). Jerry Connolly - Drums, harmonica, vocals Big backbeat. Jerry comes out from behind drums for sizzling blues-soaked harmonica and vocals. Steve Baldino - Guitar, vocals Albert King meets Chet Atkins. A totally original guitarist who sounds like no one else! Mike Cavadini - Piano, alto sax, vocals At home in any style on the 88's. Switches to alto sax to join the B. Willie Horns. Bob Elliott - Bass, vocals Most prolific songwriter - sings many of his own songs bringing a country sensibility to the band. Bill Holloman - Tenor sax, trumpet, keyboards, vocals Monster musician! Bill's played with Paul Simon, Larry Gatlin, Danny Gatton, Beyonce, Roberta Flack ,Chic, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Shaboo Allstars, and many others. He's performed in Europe (including The Montreux Jazz Festival several times) and Japan. All are multi-instrumentalists All play their butts off! All hail from CT (North Haven class of '73! (except Holloman who joined BWS in 1981) Expect an infectious blend of R&B, Swing, and Rock and Roll fit seamlessly together in one high-octane performance!
