I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Lipstick, Power & Paint - Billy T Band

William Troiani, Bill or Billy among friends, was born in New York City, NY in 1949. He started playing the bass when he was 11, and was quickly turned on to RnB and Blues. By the time he reached his twenties, he was playing music full time. While still situated on the American east coast he toured and/or recorded with such diverse artists as Eddie Kirkland and Tom Russell..... Since moving to Norway, just over a decade ago, Bill Troiani has established himself as one of Scandinavia's premier bassplayers for RnB, Blues and Roots Music. He has played with virtually the entire Norwegian music elite, and has been a permanent member of both Amund Maarud's and Vidar Busk's touring bands. In '99, Bill Troiani founded the Muddy Waters Blues Club's houseband together with Kid Andersen, Charlie Musselwhite's current guitarist. He led the houseband until the fall of '06. Backing international artists like Nappy Brown, Homesick James, Lazy Lester, Marva Wright and Bill Sims Jr. to name a few..... Today Bill Troiani plays regularly with young RnB and Blues talent Joakim Tinderholt in addition to his own Billy T Band. The Billy T Bands 2nd album "L.O.V.E. (just a silly notion)" was released January 25th 2010. It's a great follow up to the first release "A little mixed up" from 2007 , and it has already gotten a lot of positive response. See the blog for rave reviews!
