*The Bands* BILLY WYLDER From the front-lines at Standing Rock to the archaic streets of Jerusalem, the Sahel Desert all the way to Carnegie Hall, music has been the thread and source of strength for Billy Wylder. The band features Avi Salloway from Bombino/Hey Mama/Avi & Celia joined by an inspired cast of top-notch musicians who have performed in over twenty five countries. From 2013-16, Salloway toured the globe, performing with Bombino, the Tuareg guitar virtuoso from Niger, Africa and is now bringing new and old songs to life with the Wylder family.
Billy Wylder, like their peers, the David Wax Museum and Rubblebucket, bring sounds from around the world to meld with their American roots, taking the listener on a journey from bayou to borough, desert to dreamland. The band has toured extensively, performing and collaborating with renowned artists including Jack Johnson, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Bombino, The Low Anthem, and Pete Seeger.
The members of Billy Wylder are all charismatic artists and educators who have taught and performed in the Middle East, China, Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, North America and the Caribbean including concerts at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival, Newport Folk Festival, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Montreal Jazz Fest, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center.

DANIELLE MIRAGLIA Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. "Straddling the line where folk/roots meets rock/blues, Miraglia has a voice that can go from a raspy come-hither purr to an Etta James- esque powerhouse belt, although she may be best known for her lead thumb a heavy, thumping strike on her Gibson thats backdrop percussion in itself." - The Boston Globe
