HOME Billy Brandt w/ the Thing & the Stuff Band’s music has a working class appeal that radiates masculine charm and chutzpah. A voice like dark roasted coffee with a hint of cream and a band as sweet as the cube of sugar. His original music speaks to everyman themes of love, loss, and possibility, reflecting a depth of influences from Ray Charles and Lou Rawls to Frank Sinatra and Mose Allison. Armed with persuasion, stage presence and his rockin’ group The Thing & the Stuff Band, Billy charms audiences with a confection of jazz, rock, blues and soul. Placing a high value on collaboration, Billy is inspired by the wealth of talent in the Seattle arts community. For the past six years, he has produced the highly successful variety shows The Big Gig and The Big Giggle, which feature the talents of Northwest artists from a mix of disciplines.
