When, in spring of 1992 they got the crazy idea to start a blues band in order to fill the free-stage line-up in Zichem (BE) nobody (and I literally mean nobody) would’ve thought that they would still exist and play live shows on a regular basis.

On the contrary, if someone would have told them that in that long, over 20 year career, they would do over 500 shows in Belgium and abroad, in clubs, pubs and outdoor stages with the blues & reggae festival in Jamaica in 2000 to top it all, they wouldn’t have taken that person seriously. They probably would have laughed at him….. Now, over 20 years later, they still raid the stages, in Belgium and abroad. Chilly Willy knows how to get the party started and keep it going, always and everywhere!
