"Bay of Plenty" testimonials:
"If we needed any further evidence of the musicality and versatility of Billy, here it is! The songs, accompanied with guitar, show the sweet side of my friend, while the piano-based songs have him emotional and vulnerable. I wish I had the chance to record this with him! Mr. Hinsche is definitely a graduate of the University of California, Brian Wilson Campus." --- Robert Lamm (Founding member of Chicago)
"What a pleasure to have on disc, the songs that I so enjoyed hearing performed live in my many travels with Billy. This disc really ''humanizes'' a very soulful, provocative musician and entertainer." --- Jeff Foskett (Brian Wilson''s Musical Director)
"Bay of Plenty packs plenty o'' pleasure for those who''ve waited for Mr. Hinsche to step front and center from the groups he''s lent his boundless talents and enthusiasm (just proves my hunch it was Hinsche!). Intimate, companionable reflections. Magical musicianship filled with romance, subtle whimsy, with trademark harmonics associated with his life at the top of the charts. I lost my blues on a cruise through each new sentiment on this heavenly sent Bay of Plenty." --- Van Dyke Parks (Brian Wilson''s "Smile" lyricist)
"Billy Hinsche is a talented, devoted musician for over 40 years! Billy is a true performer and has always been electric on stage. His live CD is another example of how hard he rocks!" --- Carnie Wilson (Founding member of Wilson Phillips)
