Born and raised in Delaware, Bill has been a professional musician and
songwriter for the past 30 years, first with Delaware favorites The
Numbers who released two singles and one five-song EP and received
national exposure on USA Cable Network’s “Night Flight”.
After The Numbers disbanded, Bill was invited to join The Flamin'
Caucasians. For the past 20 years, the Caucs have played and continue
to play nightclubs, parties (2000 Republican Convention in Philadelphia),
TV appearances (ESPN’s “Lighter Side of Sports”) and radio shows (WIP’
s “Wing Bowl”) nationally.
In 2007, Bill formed his own children’s music company, We Kids Rock,
dedicated to the idea that the best music for little ones is music that they
and their parents can enjoy together.
We Kids Rock’s first cd "Everybody Clap Your Hands" was released in
Jan. 2007. Their second "Let The Sun Shine" was released Jan. 2008
and won a NAPPA award for children's audio the same year. 2009 saw
the release of We Kids Rock's 3rd cd "There's A Train..." and a NAPPA
Gold and Parent's Choice Award.
Bill just released a 4th CD in June 2014 "Old MacDonald Family Band".
The cds feature catchy originals as well as traditional favorites in the style
of early Rock’n’Roll, Rhythm & Blues, Punk, Ska and Country. Guest
musicians include Johnny Neel (Allman Brothers, Johnny Neel Band), Skip
Dennenberg (“Having a Ball” released and sold by the Philadelphia
Phillies), Simon Illa (R&B Producer) and Marc Moss (production credits
include David Bromberg, Nik Everett and Cliff Hillis).
Bill attended Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. He continues to study
and paint with Delaware legend, Ruth Ann Crawford.
Bill has two sons and lives in Delaware County, PA.
Heather graduated from the University of Delaware with a
degree in Early Childhood Education and is the mother of three
children. She has been singing, dancing and performing in
musical theater since she was six years old and continues to
perform in local theater productions. She attended We Kids
Rock classes for many years with her own children and is
excited to return as a teacher and work with the two things she
loves most, music and children.
