Billy Erickson began his career in 1971 and has been delighting
audiences all around the country ever since. From Las Vegas to Arkansas, to Honolulu to Arizona, Billy’s music brings something to the picnic for any venue, any occasion. He performs at Desert Adventures in Indio and has played at the Orange County Fair for the past 12 years, in addition to regular appearances at Knott’s Berry Farm since 1990. At the Great North American Country Music Festival in South Dakota, Billy performed with fellow musicians Roy Orbison, the Everly Brothers and the Bellamy Brothers, just to name a few. Billy also lends his name and talent to support many charities and participates and performs in various celebrity golf tournaments.
Among his most recent charity events are Kelsey Grammer’s Toys for Tots, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Little Rock, Arkansas, and Swing for Life-Palm Springs and Tucson. The charity work is very important to Billy because he says, “Being able to create music and make a living from this is incredibly rewarding. I need to give it back when it is needed to help other people. I’ll bring my guitar anytime you want to create some smiles and have some fun. I feel I’ve been blessed.”
