“Harley’s audiences are families, but it’s hard to tell
who enjoys him more—parents or children.”
Los Angeles Times

Family Concerts

Intergenerational entertainment at it’s best, Bill’s songs and stories paint a vibrant and hilarious picture of growing up, schooling and family life. Masterful storytelling and comic narrative songs will have listeners young and old laughing out loud. With slice-of-life vignettes about big trouble and simple pleasures, Bill’s rubber-faced abandon and keen memory will delight the entire family.

Adult Concerts

With songs, stories and commentary about work and play, parenting and growing older, friendship, dogs and family traditions gone awry – plan to experience Bill’s trademark insight and humor in a new way.

“Peppering his originals with stories, commentary and well-chosen, well-written covers, the fun from this performance is infectious.”
—The Performing Songwriter
