Bill Roberts Solo

Bill Roberts plays guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, harmonica and more. Bill sings and plays guitar in Cat Daddy.  In his solo act, he sings and plays guitar along with backing tracks of hundreds of songs he has learned and rerecorded,  instrument by instrument in the recording studio. You could call him a one-man-band. His multi-instrumental ability creates an exceptional act suitable for restaurants, clubs and private parties. 

Bill is a multi-instrumentalist and singer. He learns every instrument of every song in his repertoire and rerecords the backing tracks minus the lead vocal and guitar. Live, he sings and  plays guitar over the backing tracks giving you the sound of a FULL BAND.

Below is a list of songs you might hear when Bill Roberts plays solo.

 

Reviews!

Bill is a very accomplished musician.  He has a sound/recording studio in his home.  He plays everything (but horns) from drums, guitar, pedal steel guitar, acoustic guitar, keyboards and has a very good voice.  He lays down tracks (records) of the different instruments that he plays, and then mixes them into the song.  All he has to do when he performs is to bring up the song for background music and he plays guitar and sings for a complete musical rendition that is extremely good.

A complete musician who knows his craft.  I have a friend here in Carlsbad who use to tour with a band and he use to open for the big names (Genesis,  Cheap Trick, Yes to name a few).  BUT on his own, he does not sound too good solo. No where near as good as Bill.  His voice is not nearly as good, although his virtuosity on the guitar is excellent.  Bill, on the other hand, covers ALL bases.  He covers, Jaz, Blues, some Country and a full range of Pop.  He puts his stamp on each song.  And it is a good stamp, working well.  I was impressed with his acumen.

“Bill, Just wanted to thank you again! The party was a hit and you were great!       Bob B.

Bill,

CrossRidge sincerely thanks you for providing WONDERFUL entertainment at our community events! Our residents had such a fabulous evening with you in September, that we were excited to hire you again over the winter. Now, summer is around the corner and folks are looking forward to your return in June! You are truly unique in being a solo entertainer who provides the sound of a full band. This allows us to host you at our larger outdoor events, as well as our smaller indoor functions.

I’m also glad to hear that residents have been hiring you to entertain at their private parties. They have truly enjoyed you and cannot say enough great things about their experience working with you. THANK YOU!

In addition to providing outstanding entertainment, you are also a pleasure to work with! You are always professional and genuinely interested in making sure our events are successful. Thank you for all you do! Looking forward to our next event and many more to come.
