Shows - The R&B Jukebox | Saturday 6pm
Originally from New York, Easy Bill has been the host of the R&B Jukebox since November 2002. He was introduced to the sounds of honking saxophones, pounding pianos, and the Big Beat through the swing revival of the mid-nineties. Learning more about the music from books and old magazines led to a job at a record store, where he began collecting his extensive music library that he now shares with listeners across the Front Range every Saturday night on the R&B Jukebox.
A musician himself, Bill has played guitar in various groups since moving to Colorado, in genres ranging from rockabilly to straight-ahead blues. He now fronts his own band, Easy Bill & The Big Beat, and performs around the area when not hosting the show. Their debut CD, entitled “Midnight Creep”, was recorded in the Performance Studio at KUVO/KVJZ.
On his nights off he can be found swing dancing with his friends, going out to enjoy live music, or trying to figure out when Rolando Garcia is actually going to be in town so that they can hang out.
