The gig was almost up when they played at a bar his father frequented. However, all was well and his father supported his music. Bill took a sabbatical from 1975-1996 to raise a family . He has now rejoined the Cincinnati music circuit and plays festivals, blues jams and assorted venues around cincinnati. Bill fulfilled a life long dream and jammed on Beale St in Memphis. He is a multi skilled musician who plays a variety of instruments and genres.
Denise Daly began playing guitar and singing at the age of nine. Her early influence and interest in music has stayed with her through the years. Like Bill, Denise also took a long sabbatical from music and has only started playing again in the past couple years. Delta Blues, Jazz, and Traditional Folk music have remained a constant favorite through the years, although she covers many styles.
