New Year 2020

I have a couple of announcements for 2020:
1) After touring with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons for the past two years, Frankie has decided to create a new line up. I take with me the experience gained from “bringing it”, night after night, on stage before thousands of people in venues all over the world. I’ll miss playing this music and the amazing fans but, mostly, I’ll miss the musicians and crew that became friends and the pleasure of traveling and playing great music with them.

I’m also excited about the opportunity to join another touring band or show. So if you hear of any opportunities for a bassist / lead vocalist, please let me know. 


2) I’m currently working with some very talented musicians on a Fleetwood Mac tribute show for the new year. It’s ramping up, and I will send you an announcement when our show dates are confirmed. I think this is going to be a great show and look forward to sharing it with you.

Final Shows for 2019 w/Frankie Valli

What an honor to play at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey. Three nights and the show was sold out all three. A show in Washington DC and then our final show of 2019 at the Mohegan Sun Arena at the Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort in Connecticut. A crowd of 7000 Frankie Valli fans singing and dancing to these great songs and the end of our tours in 2019. Another great year. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to everyone!!

California and Vegas tour (June 2019)

Hi everyone! I hope 2019 is going well. Since our last shows in Canada we’ve been relaxing at home in LA and rehearsing some new arrangements for the songs in the show. I’ve also done a few fun shows with the Stevie Nicks tribute band “Gypsy”.
We go back out on tour with Frankie this weekend with shows in San Diego, CA. Las Vegas, NV. and Modesto, CA. I’m looking forward to playing the shows and seeing some longtime friends and fans. Stay cool everyone, the summer has arrived in California! Best, Wil

Fun Night at San Manuel Casino

Well while I’m relaxing between Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons tours I had the chance to play in a Stevie Nicks tribute band.

I needed to learn to sing lead on a few Fleetwood Mac songs that Lindsey Buckingham sang lead. I also got the chance to sing the Tom Petty and Don Henley duets that I used to sing in cover bands back when they were hits.

Lisa Mc Cormick does a killer job of honoring Stevie and the whole night was a lot of fun playing these songs with a great band.

Finishing 2018 w/Frankie Valli

What a great year this has been. I started touring with this musical legend in April and have been on bass guitar in his band in front of thousands of adoring fans in incredible arenas and theaters here in the U.S. and in the UK. The highlights include playing Radio City Music Hall and our tour through the UK. All sold out venues. In fact it’s been mentioned by the production crew that Frankie is a bigger draw live now than he has ever been! Thanks to the Jersey Boys production and the timeless nature of songs like “My Eyes Adored You” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You”, he now has a following that covers 3 generations!

We just finished our last three shows of the year. We played in Macon, GA., Birmingham, AL., and Bossier City, LA. Photos of these venues below as we set up.

Thanks to all friends, family, and fans that made this a great year! Here’s to 2019!!
