A feel-good, fire-breathin’ freight train of the blues, Gabe Stillman & The Billtown Giants is a musical force to be reckoned with ... winning over audiences at every show with dynamic performances that showcase the band’s musical prowess, depth of artistic passion, and pure joy of playing ‘The Blues.’ While the electrifying trio’s sound is unmistakably rooted in American Blues, the band draws deeply from influences of Soul, R&B, Funk, and New Orleans jazz & blues music, performing both original compostitions and well-chosen ‘cover songs’ that pay respectful homage to the true giants of the blues in the band’s own inimitable way. But these giants always leave their own mighty big footprints where ever they roam.

Steered by prodigious guitarist & singer Gabe Stillman, and fueled by super-smooth bassist Colin Beatty and journeyman groove-master Joel B Vincent on the drumkit, this high-energy band was formed by Stillman in April of 2015 after graduating from Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music ... yet, in a very short amount of time, they’ve already risen rapidly on the scene, including multiple festival performances as well as shared bills with international blues legends The Nighthawks and Chicago powerhouse Toronzo Cannon. Based in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Gabe Stillman & The Billtown Giants has fast become favorites of every venue that has hosted them ... and most certainly favorites of every music fan to have caught a show. Nighthawks founder & frontman Mark Wenner says of Stillman, “Gabe plays the Blues with strength, personality, and a depth of both feeling and musicianship.” Toronzo Cannon agrees, saying "Gabe Stillman has got the chops and the intensity the Blues should have. Keep your eye on him!"
