Billy J. will be at the Fest all weekend with his band, including Billy Joel’s former drummer Liberty Devitto. Billy will be world premiering his new single.
Legends are hard to come by, but Billy J. is one of them. We are delighted to welcome him back to our stage.
One of only two artists to have four songs written for them by Lennon/McCartney (Peter & Gordon was the other). Billy took Do You Want To Know A Secret to # 1 in the UK, knocking the Beatles out of the top spot! Other hits by Billy include Bad To Me, I’ll Keep You Satisfied, and From A Window. His latest album, I Won The Fight, was produced and written mostly by Billy – a career first. With a song called To Liverpool With Love, Billy helped lead the charge that got his former manager Brian Epstein inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a few years ago.
Billy will be talking about Liverpool (his hometown) and the 60s at the FEST, and will be having signing sessions all weekend.
