Ellison is an entertainer who originally began playing his original,
sometimes silly, sometimes risque, songs in college at Michigan
State University in the Summer of 1980. He teamed with a friend
to form the comedy duo These Guys and performed satirical songs
in comedy clubs in E. Lansing and the Detroit metropolitan area.
From there he lived in Chicago for nearly 30 years honing his
guitar and singing skills as part of the guitar duo The Maverick
Brothers: Paul Six and Billy Seven. As Billy Seven he also had
a solo comedy act playing bongos for many years as the resident
beatnik at The Underground Wonderbar in Downtown Chicago. Bill
moved back to Michigan and this time pursued his solo guitar act
playing once again in the Detroit metro-area where people began
calling him "Wild Bill". He moved to Northern Michigan and is
establishing himself in different venues playing old rock and
roll covers, originals, cartoon and sitcom show themes and a variety
of novelty songs. Alas, he was once a normal boy.
