Little Bill and the Blue Notes have played for more Living Traditions and NWDance.net dances than any other band. Bill and various lineups have been wowing dancers with their take on rhythm and blues. Expect great music to dance East and West Coast Swing, Blues, and some Latin. These musicians are the real thing and are truly a Blues tradition in Seattle.
Bill Englehart has opened for legendary acts such as BB King, Robert Lockwood Jr. and Buddy Guy. The singer, songwriter and bass player has a roomful of awards including NW Hall of Fame, the W.C. Handy Award and the BB Life Time Achievement Award. Joining him are master guitarist Billy ‘Stapes’ Stapleton, the Hall of Fame inductee Dick Powell on harmonica and keyboard and the tight and steady multiple award winning Billy Barner on drums.
