Santa Cruz rockers, Billy Martini and Steve Allison have been playing and writing music together for years, but when Billy Martini stepped from behind the drum kit and took the microphone and a feather boa, The Billy Martini Show was born.
Hard rockin’ tunes along the lines of Foo Fighters and AC/DC, and a stage show with costume changes and dancing girls that has been compared to The Tubes and KISS…
“The Billy Martini Show cranks out a full out fun show of rock the way it was meant to be performed: with style”. –Skott Freedman (Indie-Music.com)
“An infectious brand of high octane rock and roll”. –Garrett Wheeler (Metro Santa Cruz)
The Billy Martini Show has shared the bill with national acts such as Pat Travers Band and The Tubes, have played at multiple festivals such as X-Fest in Modesto, and First Friday in Las Vegas. The band has played more than 300 shows in the 9 years they have been together.
The Billy Martini Show has had multiple song placements in the Showtime series "Shameless"!
Their first two albums, “Like No Other” (2007) and “Pajama Party A Go-Go” (2009), are available on iTunes and CDBaby, and their third release, “Love Sombrero” is due out this fall. Here’s what the media had to say about the first two records:
“Welcome to The Billy Martini Show and be prepared to rock. From the first track to the last, this CD (Like No Other) is a testosterone pumped homage to the rock and roll lifestyle”. – Darryl Gregory (Indie-Music.com)
“Pajama Party A Go-Go is the full package. It’s everything arena rock should be in a tight little shrink wrapped case: boisterous, flamboyant, full of catchy hooks and powerhouse lyrics”. – Jessica Skelton (Your Music Magazine)
