The Willies serving up that Barroom Jazz, like it was back when it was sexy, raunchy, raucous, and stylish- Swing, Roots, New Orleans Blues, Americana, Jazz Age Thump, mix it all up and let some punk rockers shout over it and you got a party.ya'll!
Video for Too Lazy To Love. Fantastic vintage clips from the 20s and 30s. Flappers, swing dancers, Surrealism and great 20's pinup girls.
The Willies may be 'Too Lazy to Love' but they're rarely too lazy to get drunk and start 'fires'. Dave Willie is an inflammatory dervish of an instigator, leading the guys in the band into a frenzy of 'party vocals'. It's Trad Jazz meets Oi, ya'll. Fry Pharmacy recordings.
The Willies play Knoxville for the first time. Preservation Pub- Jen Jones sings Green Eyed Devil. Devin Pena on drums, John Troup on guitar, Dave Willie on Bass.
It's rough. It's crude. It'll get yuh's in the mood.
The Willies, 2012 - in the studio for their 1st CD,' Southern Standard'. Plenty of live footage from the Fry Pharmacy session for the last few tracks.
The Willies do this classic proud- bringing it into the 21st century with Dave's added lyrics.

Gather Bottles While Ye May. Preservation Pub. Knoxville.

The Willies take on 1930s surrealist film and 1920s glamour. Jen Jones & Dave Willie do their version of jazz/caberet performers- clips of them blend in perfectly with vintage film from the Paris of Henry Miller, Anais Nin, Edith Piaf, and Josephine Baker.
The Willies send their love to the mighty-mighty '217'.
The Willies play Southcoast Go Go at Music City Roots. July 11, 2012.
