The Summertime Trail of Tales Rolls On!

Thank you Vancouver and Hornby Festivals!  Look out Butchart Gardens, Alaska and Ontario/Quebec.  We’re having a great time seeing you all and laying down all the new tunes and past hits.

In other happy news, Trail of Tales has been hovering in the top ten of the Roots Music Report for the past few weeks, and the album is also now being released in the UK (August 29 is the official release date!) with the help of Borealis Records and fabulous UK publicist Pat Tynan.

Check out the “Shows” page over the coming weeks as the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons get filled in with North American dates. Then we’ll hope to swing over to the UK and Europe a little later in 2017.  Stay tuned!

California – Trail of Tales CD Release Tour!

Look out, Cali!  Four main dates and a couple of secret shows coming right up.  Hope to see some of you out there.  And listen in for radio appearances and support from the likes of KHUM, KSCO, KPIG and others.

Check out the “Shows” page for info on the dates, June 28 – July 3, with a special Canada Day rocker (July 1) in Santa Cruz and a triumphant return to the fabled Castoro Cellars the following day (photo below from last year’s Beaverstock show).  And of course, don’t forget the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley and a swing all the way to our funky brothers and sisters in Humboldt County – Arcata, baby!

Lotsa love,

The Bills

Thank You Arts Northwest

Good times were had by all in Boise, Idaho this week.

We met a ton of great artists, played a pretty decent showcase, hung out along the river and at Boise State University in the welcome warmth of the October sun (highs of 25 C).  And we hope to work with some of the fine arts presenters we met to arrange tours throughout the gorgeous US Northwest (including the wayyy up Northwest – we made some great new friends in Alaska!).

See you all out there soon. Looking forward to touring on the new album in 2016!

 

The Boys are in Boise

anw_logo_sideWe’ve landed in Boise at the fabled Arts Northwest Booking Conference.  This is a fabulous industry event that brings together an incredibly diverse collection of  artists who blast out 12-minute showcase performances for arts presenters from across the western US. It’s been around a decade since The Bills were here, and we’re looking forward to meeting friends old and new, artists and presenters, and setting up some excellent tours through some beautiful parts of this country.

Presenters from the conference, please visit our Presenters & Media Page

West Coast Gigs Ahoy

Hey folks!

The new album is coming along swimmingly.  And while it won’t be out on the proverbial record store shelves for at least a couple of months, we’ll have some great chances to showcase some new material and classic hits over the next two months.

Two rare local shows in August – Butchart Gardens in Victoria and the Filberg Summer Concert Series in Comox, August 12 and 13.

Then watch for a blazing version of the Bills in the US in September.

See you out there in the sun!

The Bills
