Welcome to my Web Site!
Hi, my name is Billy D (Billy DeMoya) I am an Acoustic, Solo Artist, Singer and Musician.
Every song in my performance is fresh and spontaneous. I sing and play acoustic guitar and use a RC-20XL Boss Loop Station and a Roland HandSonic 10 to create loops of percussion beats behind me and some guitar “On the Fly”. I don’t use any Midi, Backing Tracks, Pre-Programmed Drum Machines or Pre-Made Loops.
I regularly perform at Beach Bars, Tiki Bars, Patios, Restaurants and Nightclubs as well as Private Parties, Wedding Receptions and Corporate Events.
I was making music in my first band at age 11 and I still love it. After tons of bands, tours, and performances in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco and Denver, I have since happily settled down in Pinellas County, Florida in 2014!
I began making music at a very young age. My parents were from Cuba. I was born the youngest of three boys in Miami, Florida. By the time I was 12, I was playing every Friday night at the local Civic Center for five dollars a night with guys that were way older than me!
My musical career in Miami had me playing with dozens of bands and opening for the Allman Brothers, Ted Nugent, Cannonball Adderley, The Blues Image, NRBQ, Dion, Buddy Miles and more.
I spent time in New York City opening for the Ramones, Wayne County, the Heartbreakers and more with the Screws.
I then found myself in San Francisco where I sang and co-wrote on a now Ultra Rare Punk Classic 45rpm single called “Bummer Bitch” by Freestone, which is now worth up to Six Hundred Dollars.
