Billy McGuigan spent the past 20 years performing in shows that he created to honor musicians he admires. Those shows, playing everything from The Beatles to Buddy Holly, took him from his start in Omaha to headlining theaters and stages all over the world. On March 14, 2020, that career, like everything else in the world, stopped. Billy was sent home in the middle of a yearlong tour to quarantine.

Day after day, he watched his touring year cancel - date after date. Billy grabbed his guitar and began to write. In the next week, he unpacked all of his instruments into his garage in Omaha. After setting up a microphone and iMac, his 'studio' was complete.

While recording, Billy taught himself to play bass. He struggled daily to learn to play the drums. His neighbors could hear the odd noises and screams coming from his 'studio' nightly. It was just Billy and his band of one, jamming and having the time of his life. Every night for two months, he recorded.

Billy finished recording his full-length, 16 track original album billymcguiganTOGETHER in the middle of a pandemic and with the city Omaha under curfew. With the exception of the last song featuring Billy's kids, Cartney and Ciaran, every second of the album was played, sung, recorded and created by Billy in the 'studio' garage.

The live performance of billymcguiganTOGETHER features Billy's band of brothers and friends. It's a collection of stories about Billy's life told through song. The music has been described as 'Beatle Country' for the storytelling lyrics and unique melodies.
