Hello and Welome

Thank you for visiting my website.
I hope you come out and listen to Little Joe and the Cartwrights at the VFW in the Heights, Moose Lodge, the R Club in the Billings Hotel, or Levity Bar and Bistro. We do a lot of old style Country Music and a little bit of jazz. Jeff Taylor plays guitars and Jim Dressler sings and plays drums.  We are working on a cd and I hope it will be out this year.

Wednesday night is the Jazz Jam at Levity Bar and Grill next to Scheels Sporting Goods Store. Our rhythm section is Lloyd Marsh on drums, Robin Martinez on bass, and Joe Sullivan on piano. We have a different guest artist every week from the Billings area. Bring your instrument and sit in if you play jazz.

If you need solo piano and perhaps vocals, I can perform by myself in several different styles.


Joe Sullivan

Joe Sullivan, pianist, singer, composer, and arranger, grew up in Billings and earned his Music Degree at Rocky Mountain College. He has never stopped studying or practicing. In 2012 and 2013 Joe was named keyboard player of the year at the Magic City Music Awards. He has played in many groups, getting his start on the road with roots rocker and Sun recording artist Sleepy LaBeef when he was 21. He played keyboard for Billings legend, Jimmy Dressler and Big Country from 2006 - 2017. He now fronts his own groups Little Joe and the Cartwrights, and Joe Sullivan Trio. Joe also plays jazz in many venues with some of Montana's top musicians.  When Joe isn't performing and practicing, he's writing songs and arrangements. Many of his choir compositions are published and performed all over the country.
