Tonight is the official opening night of “Bill Champlin’s”, “Bichin” tour. The tour is in support of Bill’s new CD “No Place Left To Fall”. I had the opportunity to catch a preview of the tour this past Monday night at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas. If you are anywhere near this tour you must drop in and catch Bill live. The band is incredible, great musicianship, and incredible vocals. The supporting cast on this tour is Bill’s wife Tamara on Vocals, and members of Santa Fe and The Fat City Horns, Jerry Lopez-guitar/vocals, Jamie Hosmer keboards/vocals, Rochon Westmoreland bass/vocals, and former Santa Fe member Eddie Garcia on drums.
