Bill’s band, The Immigrants, performed at many venues in the Boston area including The Rat, The Bog, The Middle East, Club 3, T.T. the Bears, and last but not least, The Causeway. His songs were often played on college radio, most recently by The Hawk, 104.9 FM in the Lakes Region.

Brian Bernard, the DJ at The Hawkrocks.com 104.9 FM recently offered a double-shot tribute to Bill on his show, Backstage, by playing two songs by The Immigrants on the Radio.

Bill“At the top of the show, we will play two tracks from The Immigrants, who very recently lost member Bill Sheridan. Bill and his brother Dan are longtime members and big supporters of our local music scene and Bill will be greatly missed,” commented Brian Bernard, on his show Backstage.

The Immigrants

These newcomers sport an intriguing sound with an incantatory edge not too far short of compelling...

The Immigrants

Their melodic instincts are quite keen and the vocalist's phrasing is original and chuck full of irresistible hooks. The next Morphine?

The Immigrants

Amazingly unpretentious music from this duo... if you like smart pop delivered in a straight forward fashion with no frills or gimmicks, you'll want to check out The Immigrants...

The Immigrants

My favorite tunes here are "Jackie Boy," "Changemaker," and "Shot to Pieces." This here thing goes to show how cool underground music really can be.
