At only 20 years old, Billy Thoden has already enjoyed a storied professional music career.

Discovered by Jimi Hendrix's bassist, Mr. Billy Cox, at age 10, Billy was already a kid phenom blues guitarist.  He was able to play the guitar behind his head or back flawlessly and in showman style ala Hendrix & SRV while leading bands and lead singing.  At only 11  years old, he began a blues festival touring schedule that hasn't stopped

Fronting the "Billy the Kid" Blues Band for almost a decade, he continues playing top stages from Nashville's NAM to Nova Scotia's Guitar Fest! He's opened for major acts like Robert Randolph and Pat Travers, met and performed with greats like Eric Gales, Dickey Betts and Billy Cox and received personal tutelage from blues/rock legends like Elvin Bishop and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, who gave him the moniker "The Kid."

Now at 20, he has started an original jazz fusion project in NJ called FATT MEZZ that has gained  a strong following even during Covid times.

This is a band you don't want to miss.
