2018 BRINGS A NEW YEAR...NEW NAME...NEW DIRECTION...
Ben Childs' Killbillies is a Florida Celtic / Americana band that began it's journey in 2010. The original members were Micah Scott, Ben Childs and Zak "baby boy" Mahoney. All touring veterans, they have a combined experience that spans Bluegrass to Punk Rock. Ben Childs played in the now seminal Ska-Punk outfit Sonic Boom Six and Zak has played with such Florida favorites as the String Assassins.
They have played all around Florida, toured up the Eastern seaboard of the USA as well as in the UK. They are a high energy party band that will make you dance as well as reminding you, or introducing you to some classic Irish and Americana Standards. Their last original album "Transplant life" is available on iTunes and Spotify.
The new crew includes percussionist Tyler Kulik on drums and cajon and Caitlin Trezise appearing sporadically on fiddle. An exciting new addition is James Galiano on Banjo. We have been hoping for the right banjo guy and I like to think we have found him! We are ready to reintroduce our exciting brand of folk infused rocking music to both new audiences and the fans that enjoyed them in its original incarnation
There is no better band for festivals to back yard bashes and we will guarantee a good time wherever we play. Come hang out and be a part of this exciting Florida phenomenon.
Right now is a great time. Come hear that banjo bubble!
