Anyone remember The Toast Band from Bridgeville, PA.? Well guess what you should check out The Bill Ali Band!Longevity might be an understatement to explain the life of one of Pittsburghs oldest performing rock legends. For over a period of Forty Four years Mr. Bill Ali (pronounced Bill AL-EYE) has been capturing the hearts and souls of many unsuspecting nightclub owners and fans! Former front man of the ever popular Toast Band one of Pittsburghs longest running great rock bands for over 36 years has switched styles just a tiny bit, going from a hard hitting Marshall Stack, Gibson Les Paul toting, in your face type of rocker performing songs from such artists as Megadeath, Danzig, and Judas Priest to a more refined in your face acoustic guitar slamming classic rocker performing cover songs from the 60s 70s, and 80s from artists such as Marshall Tucker, C.C.R, Ted Nugent, Pure Prairie League, and to top things off just a taste of country with Johnny Cash. Teamed up with Matt Barranti vocals/ electric guitar one of only ten guitarists in the entire U.S.A to be invited to perform at The Sliders Ball in Macon Georgia, Matts work on the bottle neck is a sight to be seen and heard! George Harris percussion/drums/vocals, George is a former member of Gass House Annie, George has performed all over the country and adds the spice of life to the band with his unique talents. Tom (Huck) Huchel Bass Guitar/Vocals Huck started in the music business at the age of 10. Self-taught, Huck has mastered the trumpet, guitar, piano, and bass guitar, Huck's solid thump contributes to the unique sound the band has developed. These four men have combined to form The Bill Ali Band Pittsburghs Premier Classic Rock Cover band.

Had my first chance to catch this bands show this past Saturday at Pizzaz on 03-24-12 and I must say I was taken completly by surprize! I came across an advertisement in the City Paper that drew me out to check this band out and all I can say is everyone needs to see these guys rock out! To me it was a concert not a club act, they jammed for an hour and a half on their first set with such great energy I had to stick around for the second set that was just as strong as the first. This is the best band I have ever had the pleasure of watching in a very long time!
