“Shake Your Body Baby” isn’t just a Chillie Willie song title, it’s a lifestyle. William Portela, aka “Chillie Willie Groove," fuses funk, rhythm and blues, soul, smooth jazz, and salsa influences into a dynamite dance floor invitation. Chillie Willie has toured with Angela Bofill, Phyllis Hyman, Tom Browne, and has opened for Spyro Gyra, Chuck Mangion, Bootsy Collins, and Jimmy Cliff, among others. Scoot your boot to the mainstage to experience this “unconventional percussionist” (Eurweb).
