Player Bio:
Born in Paducah, KY, Bill started playing the trombone at the age of 10. In 1976, he moved with his family to Indiana, where he attended and graduated from Carmel High School. He was awarded a scholarship to study trombone from Butler University in Indianapolis, where he started to learn the piano on the side. After 4 years at Butler, Bill spent the 1980's playing trombone on the road with, among others, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, The Big Band Galaxy Of Stars(featuring The Ink Spots and Maxine Andrews), "A Chorus Line" North American tour as well as 3 seasons at Grand Hotel Mackinac Island Michigan as assistant music director.

In 1990, Bill auditioned and was hired as a piano player by Ltl. Ditty's, a dueling piano bar in downtown Indy. He has since then spent the last 23 years playing at numerous dueling piano venues around the country.
