A Unique Approach  To Classic

Rock                                  Country              Jazz



"The Billy P Project"

Has partnered up with Waterway Music Productions

to help record,  promote, manage and promote local acts around N. Michigan

We will be recording some original material as well as doing studio work

with other music acts.

The four of us are looking forward to this adventurebecause we know their is

some fine talent up here in the north and we want to help further their career in music




Together we have assembled a song list of over 450 tunes, giving us the ability to cover most any venue.


Our combined desire to resurrect songs that may have been over looked or forgotten by other acts has been a labor of love and

excitement. This has lead us to be one of the strong favorites of WKLT radio out of Traverse City.

The WKLT morning show crew with Omelette and Rick Coates has dubbed us the best party band in the north.

I am fortune to have access to these extremely talented musicians:


  Andrew Schmittdiel

Drummer/Percussionist/Guitarist/Vocalist 'with multipal years experience. He brings to Flight Risk ,the talents in voice and time keeping needed to advance in this business. His training has brought him to us to make the group much tighter and his various ideas that have possibly been missing. Everyone finds it a pleasure to play along side Andrew
