Billy Baxmeyer grew up in Jersey City, N.J. where he began to explore the musical depths with his bass guitar in 1964. 9 years later, Billy brought his love of People, Funk, and the GROOVE out west to Chico, Ca.
Described as “a Bottom Feeder” by his musical brethren in the early 1970’s, Billy’s bass lays the groundwork with a fat, infectious, positive, groovalicious foundation.
In 1976, Billy was a founding member of the Spark n' Cinder Band, a world music, reggae, soul and blues collective, sharing the stage with Taj Mahal, Sons of Champlin, Sly and Robbie, Los Lobos, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steel Pulse, David Lindley/El-Rayo X, and Bob Dylan.
Billy’s influences include George Porter, "Family Man" Barrett, James Jamerson, Ron Carter, Robbie Shakespeare, Bill Laswell, and Bootsy Collins.
Now residing in San Luis Obispo, CA, Billy’s driving bass lines provide the BIG bottom for Burning James and the Funky Flames… the premiere funk 'n' soul powered combo on the Central Coast. www.burningjames.com
Billy lays down the gospel law with Burning, Bad & Cool, specializing in southern fried soul, gospel and blues dipped in sweet harmonies.
He muscles the mighty Mystery Brothers, a sextet which continues to explore a variety of styles including blues, rock, country, gospel, Latin & swing.
“My bottom has been BIGGER and BETTER since I was introduced to Jorg Schroeder and his Killer Cabs…I am currently playing through a custom 212PL, smashing down walls or tickling toes with true, powerful clarity and definition! Thank you, Jorg, for providing the tools.”
