"Hayward Battle of the Bands"

"Billy the Kid, an alternative punk band from San Mateo, played a power-chord-infused, preteen-angst-filled punk set that would satisfy any die-hard fan of early Green Day or Sum41."


"The Band From San Mateo" (2006)

"Nefarious Evildoings" (2008)



Billy The Kid began their musical journey as 7th graders at the same grammar school who all happened to play instruments. Though the band was not expected to last more than a few months, they had such a passion for performing that they have stuck together longer than anyone, including themselves, ever thought they would. Drawing from a wide range musical influences, such as Green Day, The Rolling Stones, The Ramones, The Who, The Beatles, Weezer, Rancid, Johnny Cash, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, the band combines the timeless style of classic rock from the past with today's pop-punk and powerpop genres. The result is pure energy-driven pop music, with a fun style that is reflected in the bands acclaimed and entertaining live performances. Now in their junior year in high school, Billy The Kid has since released one four track EP, and, more recently, their 12-track debut album, "Nefarious Evildoings". The name of this new album pays tribute to the band's fun and humorous style throughout the songs, but also the undeniably fiendish and mischevious undertones that add the most important element to Billy The Kid's music: ORIGINALITY. Billy The Kid is not a typical pop punk band, since they cover much more ground in their songwriting than simply songs about love. The songs on the album cover topics such as: fictional wars of pirates fighting ninjas, video-game kids, time travel, anger and frustration surrounding love, and a whole more. This is what makes Billy The Kid truly unique. In addition to having played countless venues in the band's existence, Billy The Kid has had the honor of opening for world-famous punk band The Tubes, opening the ceremony of the 2007 San Jose Rocks! Hall of Fame Induction, and, in matter of months, a very high-paying gig at AT&T Park!!! So next time you're looking for that certain band to perform at your event who will entertain and impress your audiences, please don't hesitate to choose Billy The Kid! Thank you very much for reading this!!
