Wild Bill and the Lost Knobs are a high-energy, roots-rock band from Austin, Texas. The international touring band is heavily influenced by music from Austin's trademark 70s era, the band combines blues and country with other progressive styles to satisfy the dancers, the rockers, the rollers, and anyone else who hears them play. They look and sound like they were sent straight out of a time machine from the Armadillo World Headquarters in 1978, and quite possibly smell like it too. The band formed in a slow cooker starting with a singer songwriter show in a coffee shop. That eventually resulted in the band playing their own "Highbilly Happy Hour" residency at the world famous Antone's.
They released their debut album, The Show, in 2014, and produced three videos to promote it. The video for "The Show" swept top honors over some of Austin's biggest names at the Austin Music Video Race winning for best art direction, best concept, best use of song, and best music video. They were invited to England in 2015 to play the Eroica Brittania Festival.
In 2012, Wild Bill wrote and produced his own original Christmas musical, Honky Tonk Holidaze, which is performed with the band and several other Austin musicians. The annual event benefits local charities including Austin Pets Alive, Mobile Loaves and Fishes, and Front Steps.
