The Illbillys: When are we playing? What, you're asking ME?
The Illbillys play music. This music takes place at what we refer to as, shows. These shows generally occur at fixed points in time and space, despite our determination to operate outside of these constraints.

Listed on this page are the shows that we are scheduled to play. Please be aware that we play many shows for private enterprises: Parties, country clubs, etc. While we would love for everyone on the planet to attend all of our shows, all persons are not invited to private shows, no matter how much we love each and every one of you.

FRIDAY
2.16.24
PUBLIC SHOW
MIDLO'TOOLE'S! The Illbillys open their 2024 touring season at O'Toole's in Midlothian! Is JB well enough to play & sing for 2.5 hours? He assures us he absolutely is, although he'll need some help humping the PA around. Fair enough.
Where: O'Toole's: 13919 Midlothian Tpke, Midlothian VA
When: 8-10:30

FRIDAY
3.08.24
PUBLIC SHOW
NORTHSIDE GRILLE! Named for the fact that it is located conveniently in Richmond's NORTH SIDE, relative to the actual center of Richmond, which is, at least I am told, a city. Northside Grille is a cozy place that features beverages of your desire, foods of your enjoyment and MUSIC of your dereliction, which is to say THE ILLBILLYS, at least in this particular instance. Because it's all about time, space and dimension here, people.
Where: Northside Grille: 1217 Bellevue Ave, Richmond VA
When: 8-11ish

SATURDAY
3.16.24
PUBLIC SHOW
MIDLO'TOOLE'S! O'Toole's in Midlothian's St. Patrick's Day festivities! It may surprise you to learn that a fine Irish establishment such as O'Toole's makes a fairly big deal about St. Patrick's Day, every single year! I know, counterintuitive, but I'm here to tell ya. There is no happier place than O'Toole's on St. Patty's Day. Or even the day before St. Patty's Day, which is what we're talking about here.
Please note that we're playing an earlier timeslot, 3-5PM!
Where: O'Toole's: 13919 Midlothian Tpke, Midlothian VA
When: 3-5PM

FRIDAY
3.22.24
PUBLIC SHOW
O'TOOLE'S! Prior to our recent pandemic, the Illbillys played at O'Toole's on Forest Hill Ave for First Fridays, every month, for over 300 years. Then things changed, and live music in public places became rather difficult to justify for most businesses. WELL we're back, baby! O'Toole's was always everybody's favorite Illbillys venue, and now it will become yours!
Where: O'Toole's: 4800 Forest Hill Ave, Richmond VA
When: 7-10pm

SATURDAY
3.23.24
JACK DUTTON'S BIRTHDAY! For the past several years, we've played at Jack's river place for his bday! It's a delightful time at a delightful place, but it is not a public show, so don't get too excited about it if you're not invited.
Where: Charles City County
When: 4-7pm

SATURDAY
4.13.24
JB'S CUL-DE-SAC! Illbilly JB lives in a very nice neighborhood, full of very nice neighbors. On a semiannual basis, the Illbillys set up their junk in a friendly cul-de-sac and blast out music for all! This would be what you might call a private event, but if you're desperate to attend, contact your local Illbilly and we'll see what we can do.
Where: Midlothian VA
When: TBD

SATURDAY
5.25.24
PUBLIC SHOW
WINDY HILL! Windy Hill! It's the highest point of Chesterfield County (hence the wind), and convenient to Route 288! It's a super cool place!
Where: Windy Hill Sports Complex
16500 Midlothian Turnpike, Midlothian VA

When: 7-10pm

FRIDAY
6.21.24
PUBLIC SHOW
MORE O'TOOLE'S! We used to play First Fridays at O'Toole's, but in 2024 we've graduated to Occasional Third or Fourth Fridays!
Where: O'Toole's: 4800 Forest Hill Ave, Richmond VA
When: 7-10pm

SATURDAY
6.29.24
PUBLIC SHOW
WINDY HILL! Windy Hill! I guess I have to come up with more things to say about Windy Hill. WELL, Nichole, who is the owner, is this super-pretty, tan, buff golf pro person, who's always on hand to administer hugs to deserving Illbillys. At least that's been my experience.
Where: Windy Hill Sports Complex
16500 Midlothian Turnpike, Midlothian VA

When: 7-10pm

SATURDAY
8.24.24
PUBLIC SHOW
WINDY HILL! Wow, more Windy Hill? Okay, let's see. Have I mentioned their really nice and attractive staff, who are happy to serve your every whim? Well that might be a bit optimistic, but rest assured, they are both nice, and attractive.
Where: Windy Hill Sports Complex
16500 Midlothian Turnpike, Midlothian VA

When: 7-10pm

SATURDAY
9.07.24
PUBLIC SHOW
EVEN MORE O'TOOLE'S! Can the Illbillys hold anyone's attention at O'Toole's on a SATURDAY? We shall see.
Where: O'Toole's: 4800 Forest Hill Ave, Richmond VA
When: 7-10pm

FRIDAY

O. RALPH PUCCINELLI GOLF TOURNAMENT! This is a private event! Need more information? Check out the O. Ralph Puccinelli Foundation!
Where: Richmond Country Club
When: 5-8pm

SATURDAY
9.28.24
TARRINGTON OKTOBERFEST! The tradition of Oktoberfest dates to October 12, 1810, when Kronprinz Ludwig married Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. Tarrington celebrates that memorable marriage with the consumption of beer, occasional wearing of dirndls and various entertaining contests of strength and agility! And also... the Illbillys, who were scheduled to play at Ludwig's wedding in 1810, but JB fell off of a roof and broke his nose. And nobody wanted to look at JB with a broken nose, much less hear him try to sing. Fortunately JB's nose has recovered fully over the past 214 years, so we're good to go. This is, of course, a private event.
Where: Tarrington Clubhouse, Midlothian VA
When: 4-7pm

SATURDAY
10.05.24
BETHANN'S BDAY BASH! ...which is a private event. I mean, would you like it if Bethann just showed up at YOUR birtdhay party? Well, bad example, of course you would.
Where: Midlothian VA
When: 3:30-6:30pm

SATURDAY
11.02.24
PUCCINELLI PIG ROAST! An annual event which is loved by the Puccinelli's firends and neighbors, but feared by pigs. Not a public show, but if you're a pig, we can probably work something out.
Where: Richmond VA
When: 7-11ish

MONDAY
12.23.24
THE HORN'S CHRISTMAS ADAM PARTY! Which event we play every year, or at least every year one of us doesn't fall off of a roof in November! I hereby announce my ignorance as to why this delightful event is known as the Christmas Adam Party. I have never, not once, seen Adam Sandler there. This is not a public show, and unless you're Adam Sandler, you're probably not invited.
Where: Richmond VA
When: 7-11ish
