2015 Schedule

Established more than fifty years ago by band leader Billy Frenz, Billy and the Showmen has earned their reputation as one of Connecticut's most enduring Rhythm & Blues bands.

 

 



Longtime veterans of the Connecticut / New York club scene, the Showmen are a genuine R&B band, not the average wedding band that plays some R&B.  If your taste runs toward lounge acts, look elsewhere. If you want a high-energy band that can rock the house, call us !

The Billy and the Showmen R & B Revue feature the soulful vocals of the best R&B singers in the Northeast,  a strong horn section and a tight rhythm section. The band  has thrilled audiences for over 50 years performing throughout the Northeast Region and New York City.
Billy and the Showmen specialize in hard-driving R&B, Soul, and Funk from the '60's and '70's. The band's repertoire includes the best of James Brown, Rick James, Percy Sledge, the Ohio Players, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Marvin Gaye, Wilson Pickett, Junior Welles, King Floyd,  Average White Band, Tower of Power, Buddy Miles, Kool & the Gang, Otis Redding and classic Motown artists such as the Temptations and Sam & Dave.
During the 70's and 80's they had "double-duty" as the back up band for THE CHIFFONS.


They are the band behind BILLY VERA for his east coast performances, 
They are the "East Coast Beaters" and back BV on all his east coast appearances including the "Alive at Five" concert series in Stamford, CT.,
as
seen on VH-1. 
Billy and the Showmen are based in Greenwich, CT, and can be seen in clubs throughout the southwest Connecticut / New York area. For information, or if you'd like to be included on the Showmen mailing list, contact Billy Frenz 

Whether it's a wedding, a corporate party, a private party or a show
Billy and the Showmen
deliver high impact entertainment playing the best Rhythm and Blues, Motown, Funk, and Soul.
