An Exciting and Fun Party Night!

Band Information:

Billy Chez' Cheese hails from Lima, Ohio and is a good mix of fun and song for a night!  Billy performs an excellent blend of vocals and guitar musicianship.  Always good for a joke or a laugh, Billy performs all kinds of music from the '60s to present.  And with the assistance of the one man band in a box, he covers all genres of music from easy listening to danceable and actually sounds like a full band! Sorry, no Rap songs!

And just ask; Billy isn't afraid to try songs that he has never performed before!  If Billy has heard the song, he'll give it the old college try!  

Billy began his music life in the Phase Nine band. He later was a member of Setback band and Culprit band and then was the founding member of Candi's Dirty Secret and later Candi's-X.  

Chez Cheese was formed when Billy and former member Tony Newman got together when Candi's Dirty Secret was recording its first album.  Newman produced the album and played some guitar leads.  Later, Newman joined Billy in the Candi's-X band.  Newman and Billy became friends and teamed up in October of 2004.  They played together until April of 2017. Since then, Billy Chez Cheese has been playing solo, playing guitar and singing at establishments, parties, weddings and festivals of all kinds!  And thus, the cheesy story plays on....
