  Jazz music is a great addition to any company function. Whether performing with the full trio,
a larger ensemble or just as a single, Bill never fails to deliver for private functions and corporate events as well as various charity fund raising events for countless causes. While
in Louisville, Kentucky, his trio was a favorite with the prestigious Seelbach Hilton’s catering operation, playing weddings, banquets, meetings, Kentucky Derby events and other society functions.

His sets for such events are flexible and tailored to each occasion, drawing on more
traditional fare such as classic jazz standards, sultry bossa novas, tasty ballads and very
cool, laid back blues.
