It is my solemn duty to report that the deVillebillies are disbanding after our last job on 12/31/10, New Years Eve. We've had a great time with the band, the shows, and especially the fans who came out to party with us at our local watering holes. The parting is bittersweet but amicable - we're all still very good friends and will likely collaborate on each others' projects, and possibly a few reunion shows in the coming months and years. To all who bought a CD or download, came out to the shows, emailed or messaged, or just said hello on the street, our sincere thanks. Without the support of so many good folks, the success we experienced in getting to the big stage with major national acts would not have been possible. Our songs will remain here on Broadjam, should you require a twang fix. Adios!

Hey Joe, nice to hear from you - Jango has been good for us. Over 40,000 plays now, and over 5,000 of those were user generated (organic) plays, so that's cool. We're working on some new stuff - keep pluggin away I guess. Take care!
