Billy Boy on Poison aren’t your average LA rock band. Their authenticity is gleaned from Ziggy-Stardust-era Bowie. Their garage punk crunch is Hendrix, New York Dolls, The Strokes and The Stooges. Billy Boy has played with such luminaries as The Stooges, Mickey Avalon, Swayze, The English Beat, Stone Temple Pilots, Unwritten Law, The Vandals, Blink 182, Weezer, AFI, Airborne Toxic Event, Journey, Def Leppard, ZZ Top, Public Enemy, Jet, Alice in Chains, Taking Back Sunday. They’ve also performed at SummerFest/Milwaukee, Donnington Download Festival UK (formerly Monsters of Rock), Fuji Rock Festival/Japan and are regular ticket sellouts in their home town of LA (Roxy, Whisky, Troubadour, etc.).
Billy Boy on Poison’s songs have been heard all over TV and film: Vicks/DayQuil commercial with Apolo Ohno, which is currently running, Entourage and Gossip Girl promos, FOX, ESPY’s, Oldsmobile Commercial with Kat VonD, their tune “Dirty Bomb” was the theme song for VH1’s show “Free Radio,” with Lance Krall, “Mirrors” (feature film) and the band will be featured in the upcoming feature film, “McGruber.”
