**************************************************

From Modern Drummer: "Drummer Billy Kilson grooves mightily on this energetic live set of tight funk/fusion, never eschewing musicality for showmanship or chops, but providing plenty of excitement along the way. "

**************************************************

Drummer Billy Kilson has wowed audiences all over the world with his musicality as well as his breathtaking showmanship. Encouraged by fans who not only want to hear his music, but watch him perform, Billy assembled a stellar group of musicians (Kenny Davis – bass, Henry Hey – keys and Steve Wilson – sax) and recorded Rhythm Dancer, a live DVD / CD. Each band member is also an artist and they all brought original compositions as well as their unique interpretations and years of performance skills to this recording.

The drum inspired set was custom built complete with mobiles of fluorescent painted drum sticks and a set of cymbals under the drum kit lit to resemble smoldering coals. The concert was filmed using five cameras including an over head jib so that every note was captured. The result is a high quality film of funk fusion with a solid groove, complicated rhythms and intricate jazz as well as jaw-dropping performances that only Billy Kilson can deliver.

Billy Kilson’s BK Groove is a musical melting pot. Their funky jazz fusion is a summation of the vast talents, experiences and influences of each musician. Billy Kilson, drummer and leader of Billy Kilson’s BK Groove is known for his versatility and brilliant live performances. His unique style has captivated audiences worldwide. Critics have taken note of his performances as the New York Times called him a “volcanic force barely contained” and Jazz Views said “Drummer Billy Kilson was, as always, on fire.” Frequently reviews such as one in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette have lauded his sideman performances by saying he “nearly stole the show.”

Influenced by the funk, fusion and R&B of his youth, Billy created BK Groove. He invited his peers, some of the best musicians in the jazz world, to perform and record with him. The first project, While Ur Sleepin’ featured Bob James, Dave Holland and Robin Eubanks as special guests. His second CD Pots & Pans garnered rave reviews including Jazz Times’ declaration that "this ain't pretty-boy jazz your grandma smiles to.”
