Bill Higgins Jr.

Bill Higgins is one of the most sought after drummers, instructors, and clinicians in the Detroit area. He has performed all over the United States, as well as international engagements.

After attending Wayne State University's Music School, Higgins quickly became a first call drummer for Detroit's jazz elite, performing with such luminaries as Marcus Belgrave, Harold McKinney, Rodney Whitaker, Gary Schunk, and Detroit blues legend Johnny Bassett. He is a mainstay on the jazz club and festival circuit. Performances at the Detroit International Jazz Festival, Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival, Michigan Taste Fest, and the Michigan Jazz Festival have firmly established him in the Midwest music scene.
