Makin Waves Song of the Week: "Know How to Party" by Billy Hector

“Know How to Party,” the single from legendary Jersey Shore guitarist Billy Hector’s latest album, “Rock Night in Jersey,” is the Makin Waves Song of the Week. 

Two-time Makin Waves Award-winning guitarist Billy Hector will celebrate the release of his latest LP, “Rock Night in Jersey,” on April 16 at The Stanhope House in Stanhope. 

The local star-studded album’s single, “Know How to  Party,” is the Makin Waves Song of the Week. 

As the Makin Waves Song of the Week, “Know How to Party” also can be heard between 6 and 8 p.m. on April 15 on “Radio Jersey” at ThePenguinRocks.com.

Whether Billy is teasing you with his sultry slidework, picking through delta blues or flat-out cranking it up and crunching out the electric blues/rock on his beloved vintage Fender Stratocaster, his  music reflects the true soul and origins of the blues: always passionate, engaging and dedicated to making the audience move and sweat.

Having honed his chops and style through four decades of performances in such classic Jersey Shore bands as The Shots, Hot Romance and The Fairlanes, Hector is recognized as one of the hottest and most interesting guitarist-songwriters on the original circuit.

His scorching new 10-song LP was recorded and mixed at Jankland Studio in Belmar by owner Steve Jankowski, Billy, and his wife and longtime band mate Suzan Latovica. Joining Billy, Suzan (backing vocals), and Steve (trumpet) on the album are drummers Sim Cain (Rollins Band, Ween) and Ernest “Boom” Carter (E Street Band), bassists Wilbo Wright (Chris Harford, Yo-La Tengo, Toshi Reagon) and Tim Tindall (Bill Perry, Christine Santelli), keyboardists David Nunez (Glen Burtnik) and Ed Alstrom (New York Yankees, Herbie Hancock, Chuck Berry, Bette Midler), and saxophonists Tommy LaBella (Jon Bon Jovi, Bobby Bandiera Band, The Rascals, Max Weinberg, Lisa Sherman) and John Martin (Aretha Franklin, Darlene Love, Steve Van Zandt), whose horns were arranged by Billy.
