About Virtual Playboys

I created the Virtual Playboys when my world, like many others, fell apart due to the covid-19 situation. Being unable to perform live gigs or run any events I was lost and pretty low for a moment. It was at this point I looked back through my years of being a musican/entertainer and how it all started, and of course, it was then I realised my creativity had been left behind a long time ago, hence, this journey was about re-discovering me and my connection with music. To re-live the dreams I dreamed 35 years ago.

The songs, jokes and characters are all taken from my journey of being a touring musician, Without doubt this project has helped me through one of the most difficult times I have experienced emotionally, where words fail, music speaks, that simply says it all.

Lastly, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here, sharing, liking, buying the merch and supporting me, it is YOU that has ultimately, turned my life around. Thank you, Billy Curtis (11/05/20)
