Billy McAllister

Billy Mac’s love for music and entertaining began when he was eight years old and performed a vocal solo for his church. He had always loved to sing, play the piano, and make people laugh, but after seeing the approval on the faces of the crowd, he knew that making people smile and delighting them with music was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life.

Billy kept this dream in mind as he grew up, and after graduating from high school, he entered Central Michigan University as a vocal performance major with a piano minor. After three years of intense study, he began a full-time music career. He spent the next 15 years playing in Top 40 dance bands, rocking away and honing his craft. He followed this with 10 years as an exclusive piano bar/one-man-band guy, entertaining different audiences with musical selections and shows.


Billy’s Duelin’ Grands

The idea for Billy’s Duelin’ Grands finally came into being in 1995. Billy’s spot-on comedic timing and love of music combined themselves into a high-energy show that quickly became a crowd favorite. For the last fifteen years, Billy and his associates have been dueling away, playing Rock’n’Roll piano, singing, and providing comedy shows all over the Midwest. When Billy isn’t out entertaining audiences at private events and corporate functions, he can be seen as the resident player at the Rum Runners in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.
