Billy Dixon's Soul Train Express
Contact DetailsBilly Dixon
In the 60's Billy performed with the Night Train Revue... Vancouver's #1 R&B band at the time. In the 70's he formed a Big Horn band called New Breed which became very popular in the city. Then came the Disco invasion! Billy got himself a 9 to 5 job but kept his interest in music by doing occasional gigs such as the Arts Club, Commodore, Richards On Richards, the Fairview and the Yale.
In May, 1986 Billy returned to his music full-time. He reunited with the Night Train Revue at Club Soda for an Expo tribute to Vancouver's rock classics. In June, 1986, he again performed with the Night Train Revue at the celebration of Dance Party's 20th Anniversary. And, he is still a member of the Night Train Revue performing at today's ever popular retro parties throughout the city. He also performs as a freelance guest artist with local personalities and has worked with local celebrities such as Sibil Thrasher, Lovi Eli and Lovena Fox.�
Billy is indeed the consummate entertainer... His current band is called the "R&B Express" and contains many of Vancouver's premium musicians.�
"The man is back... and right on track."
