Billy & the Beaters et al: Bar Bands Make The Rounds
Don Snowden, Los Angeles Times, 21 December 1986
THE SATURDAY NIGHT crowd packed into At My Place in Santa Monica whooped it up as Billy & the Beaters kicked off their opening set with the jumping blues instrumental 'Strolling With Bones'. A regular monthly attraction at the nightclub, the band's repertoire of R&B chestnuts and leader Billy Vera's original songs was greeted with knowing cheers.
