The Legendary Bill Toms and
The Acclaimed Chaz De Paulo
New Year’s Eve at the Island Theatre
Bill Toms has evolved to become one of the best orators in the music world today. He connects to an audience and embraces the American traditions of rhythm and blues, soul, folk, and rock and roll. His performances have become legendary in sheer power and passion. His gifts of music and storytelling, paired with his creative compulsion for songs that burrow deep into the soul, have his dedicated fans continually coming back for more.
He joined Pittsburgh’s legendary band, The Houserockers, as lead guitarist in 1987. The band’s meteoric rise into the professional music scene enabled Bill to tour the United States and Europe repeatedly. While with Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers he opened for and played with a long and impressive list of notables, such as The Band, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Little Feat and Stevie Ray Vaughn. During his 19 years of playing guitar and singing back-up vocals for the Houserockers, Toms’ recorded six studio albums and one live concert album. In 1995, the acclaimed CD, “American Babylon,” was recorded and produced by Bruce Springsteen. (from the Artist website).
