Let us introduce ourselves . . .
DRUMS / PERCUSSION
SILVER LAKE, OHIO
A drummer so fun she has a band named after her, Jill has been playing since the 60s, overcoming the initial obstacle of her Mogadore school music teacher's stuffy disapproval of drum lessons for girls. The basement in Jill's Silver Lake home has long since ceased being her own family's living area, instead becoming the Jillettes' practice room.
GUITARS / VOCALS
Most of his students know him as Dr. Robert Jewell, professor of Marketing at Kent State University, father and husband. However, Bob has always been very passionate about music and the guitar. Bob handles the lion's share of lead guitar duties and gets a kick out of showing his students his lighter side.
GUITARS / BASS / KEYBOARDS / VOCALS
Bill is a self-described harmony singer who noodles around on various instruments. He has performed on guitar, bass, keyboards, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, and (very briefly) harmonica. Bill had played his first guitar less than a month when he was high-fived by Muddy Waters, although admittedly at Muddy's gig, not Bill's. A native of Wheeling, WV, Bill is a 1979 graduate of Kenyon College where he played coffeehouses & frat parties and sang baritone & toured the east coast with the Kokosingers acappella group. At WVU College of Law he co-founded the Attorneys At Flaw with Bob Noone, the Perry Mason of Legal Parody, writing & performing legal parody songs. In the '90's Bill played guitar in Lake & Cuyahoga Counties with the Garage Doors and has performed solo at various venues including the Lake County Fairgrounds. When off-duty from the Jillettes, Bill can be found playing bass & warbling with the Woodpeckers and playing country music with the Big North Band. Bill and his wife, Donnah, also a Jillette, live in the Lake County/Mentor area.
SAXOPHONE / VOCALS / PERCUSSION / KEYBOARDS
Donnah sings lead & harmony and handles saxophone duty as well as adding odd percussion and occasional keyboards. Originally from Wheeling, West Virginia, she graduated from Marshall University. When not front and center with the Jillettes, Donnah is an anesthesiologist and lives in Lake County with hubby Bill. Donnah appears in the Rolling Stones DVD "The Biggest Bang" (she can be seen in the Toronto club crowd just to the right of Mick during the song "Back of My Hand").
