Biography

The Willards Band is from Omaha, NE. Formed in 2005, we started out playing together in college. We then started playing at Will's house and then somebody wanted a band so we learned a bunch of songs started playing in a bar that maybe holds 60 people max, and the rest is history. We all liked the same kinds of music so it was a natural progression to begin to write our own songs. The process got to be almost automatic. We all knew what we wanted to hear and fortunately it was always turning out to be the same things.
If I had to put a name on the type of music we play I guess I would have to say Americana. We are a blues and southern rock based country band. We thrive ourselves on playing some damn fine guitar and singing songs that just get stuck in your head (in a good way)!!
We are big fans of Dwight Yoakam, The Mavericks, Wayne Hancock, Hank III, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, The Rolling Stones, Eric Johnson, Danny Gatton, Travis Tritt, The Police, the list could go on for days!!!
