Dear Friends and Fans,
I’m happy to announce some very exciting news! We have offically changed the name of the band from "Gabe Stillman and The Billtown Giants" to"The Gabe Stillman Band."
I’m very proud of the name "The Billtown Giants." It has been a huge part of my growth as an artist, and I will always look back at these years with warm affection for the music that was created by all of the people who have participated in this band. However, through the various lineup changes over the past year, I can't deny that we sound different, perform differently, and function differently as a band. I don’t feel the same, artistically, as I did when this all got started 3 years ago. Colin, Jesse, and I will still be bringing you the same #HardStompinBlues attitude every time we hit the stage!
Coming up at the end of March, we are excited to be once again competing at the Billtown Blues Festival Audition Concert for the opportunity to open the 29th Annual Billtown Blues Festival and have the great honor of representing the Billtown Blues Association at the 2019 International Blues Challenge. We hope to see you at the concert on Saturday, March 24th, 2018 at the Genetti Hotel!
Also, in 2018, we will be releasing our first official CD! You will finally be able to take our music home with you! For the last couple years, at almost every show, I get asked the questions “Do you guys have a CD?” and “Where can I listen to your music?”, and I’ve always had to reply with a disappointing “SOON." I never intended for you folks to have to wait this long, but because of our busy gig schedule and also my desire to find the right people to collaborate with on a recording I could be truly proud of, the project has been on hold until this year. I commend you for your patience and I can’t wait for you to hear what we’ve got in store!! You can expect to hear some samples from my first record this spring.
As always, thank you all so much for your love and support as we continue to grow! It means everything to me when I look out at a crowd of people dancing and singing along at our shows. Words cannot describe how much joy you folks bring to me and the band. We look forward to seeing you again soon and sharing our new music with you! - Gabe
