60 Seconds WIth… Bill And The Jerks


So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?

We’re called Bill And The Jerks and I am Bill, one of the lead guitarists/bassists.


What do you think people will say you sound like?

I hear funky, groovy, smooth, heavy, light, psychedelic. My personal favorites are, fun and sexy.


What do you love about making music?

The making part is what I love. And I guess making love is a big part..


What do you hate about the music industry?

I dislike people that try to tell musicians what to do and how to play and when to release the albums, whether that be fans or managers or even record companies.


If you could show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?

Personally, Omar Rodriguez Lopez is my hero. He, in my opinion, has one of the most creative minds and he knows that everything can be seen as music if you look at it right.


What can a punter expect from your live show?

People can expect an actual show. Smoke machined and laser lighted out the wing wang. Every type of solo, and energy bouncing off the walls.


When’s the gig and with who?

The gig is on Saturday February 25, we are supporting The Funky Brews with a band called The Kieths at Noise Bar. It’s $5 at the door there will also be DJ Fin spinning old school funk, hip hop and soul on vinyl ’til late. And if you come and say hello to me (Bill) I’ll buy you a drink.
