The Jillettes formed in 2006, getting together because of a Woodsy's Music program called "Weekend Warriors". This program had the purpose of uniting musicians who possibly hadn't played in a while and were interested in getting together to make some music. In other words, School of Rock for old people! Bill, Bob, and Hal were somewhat cautious about a female drummer, but it wasn't long before they were even willing to name the band after her. When the program ended, the music and friendships lasted. Gigs followed in places like Darby's in Cuyahoga Falls, Musica in Akron, backyard parties in Silver Lake, Kenyon College Reunions, and the Pink Pony on Mackinac Island, to name a few. Since Hal's departure in '09, the Band evolved to the current line-up with RJ and Donnah.
 
So the dream lives on, and we hope those who listen to the music
have as much fun as those who are playing it!
