About Ill Billies

Entertain, Entertain, Entertain. Two things are guaranteed, the sun sets on the Colorado Creek and brother Ill and Billy will Entertain you!
Country band
Public liability insurance of £2 million

Brothers Ill & Billy have been playing country music since their days as boys on the Colorado creek ranch. Having moved to London to show the beautiful people of Great Britain the true charm of country music, they met Barry (a local wedding DJ) who said he loved the country, but didn't love the songs. They took Barry's set list and are now spreading their fun batch of pop country with a sprinkle of southern hospitality and humour and play all over Great Britain from festivals, to pubs, to weddings, to clubs and everything in between. y'all gotta ask yourself 'does this party need a little more country'

I hired The Duo to perform at my country and western charity event in Cornwall. What an amazing evening it turned out to be! Bobby and Joe arrived with plenty of time to set up and were both extremely friendly and helpful from the outset. Their performance was superb throughout the evening and they stayed in their Country & Western characters until the end. The songs were performed in their own special way, all of them known to our guests which created a party atmosphere and full dance floor from beginning to end. They also learnt a couple of request songs, one of which helped my son propose to his girlfriend. I really liked that they joined in on the dance floor in between sets. Everyone was so impressed and well entertained and I will certainly rebook in the future. Great value for money! 🤠 Liz Fedrick. Saltash Cornwall

We booked the Ill Billies for our main entertainment at the Containerville Christmas Party (2021). Containerville is a hub of 240 small and startup businesses, so we needed an entertainment act that would be fun for all types of personalities and musical tastes. We can honestly say that the party would not have been half as successful had Ill and Billy not been there. They were fantastic with communications running up to the event, they were on-time and brought all of the equipment needed with them, meaning it was totally hassle-free for us. By the end of their performance, there was dancing in the crowd and lots of singing along. The music was genuinely excellent and we had lots of businesses coming up to us afterwards saying how much they enjoyed the Ill Billies. They were an absolute pleasure to work with, and we will definitely use them again in the future. Thanks, Ill and Billy!
