Sunshine When asked as to why he joined Billyrubin after being introduced to the music of Bob Pantella, Mr. Sunshine cannot possibly express the ambition that convinced him to exit the faerie ring, shave his flowing white beard, and rejoin the land of the relevant. Sunshine, soon after signing on, offered some songs he had penned as well as lyrics and melodies for the existing music. Sunshine is a vocalist and has sung in various bands, none quite fitting his hyper-creative spirit.
Bob Pantella is the energetic founder of the band, having written and produced a good percentage of the music on the initial CD. He conceived of this project and locked himself away in a little room, writing music for a matter of months, until meeting up with Sunshine, together completing the sound of Billyrubin. Bob plays the drums and has done so for various bands, most notably Raging Slab.
Matt O'Ree has never taken a job at a local nursing home in order to track down a harmonica player named Willie Brown, the last man alive who might know Robert Johnson's lost song. Matt however does bring his unique bluesy feel to the mixture called Billyrubin. Matt has been praised in both print and on the web for his guitar virtuosity.
Alexis Lehman Call him Lex. He did not start the new Millennium 2000 by performing before 40,000 fans at the Osaka Dome in Japan but does play a hell of a bass. Lex performed along with Bob in Love Among Freaks, a band noted for their original scoring of Kevin Smith's movie Clerks.
