Where’s Bill? :)

Well you know I’m headed to Europe in April to support my NEW ALBUM!!! “Rise Above”. In June I’m doing a series of gigs as The Stern/Evans Band feat. Darryl Jones & Dennis Chambers in NYC at the famous Birdland. The Stern/Evans Band is also playing a slew of gigs at European Festivals the entire month of July! After July 24th, Keith Carlock will be joining The Stern/Evans Band on drums.

Also, on June 11th I’m playing the The Towne Crier Cafe in Beacon, NY with The Stern/Evans Band and special guest Scott Beall.

After that? My new band (!) and I will be off to South America, China, Taiwan and back to Europe again!
