Billy and the Box Kid emerged as a duo in the Bend open mic scene when singer-songwriter Anderson Koenig (also known as Billy) and Scottie McClelland (the Box Kid) collided, both searching for an outlet for their musical talent. They combined Koenig's fast-paced acoustic country Rock'n Roll with McClelland's high-energy and distinctive style of playing the Cajon aka "box drum". The band has since expanded into a five-piece group with the addition of Tommy Lutz on mandolin, Ryan Harris on lead blues guitar, and Ben Woessner on bass, helping to create a unique sound for the group. Their music is influenced by 1950s Rockn' Roll, country, and bluegrass, with a hint of Southern blues. Their mission is to get folks out on the dance floor and stomping their feet.
Based in Bend, OR.
Billy and the Box Kid will be opening up for Utah's very own Pixxe and the Partygrass Boys at the prestigious Volcanic Theatre Pub.
