Breaktime For Francis / Bio

At age 10 Brothers Jesse Guilliams and David Dykes started playing guitar. shortly after they formed a cover band with their cousins Nick and Blake Lott. It didn't take long for Jesse to grow tired of covers and start writing originals. In 2003 Jesse and David played in the Natchitoches Jazz Festival along with the key members that would be the building blocks for Breaktime For Francis. After several member changes and cousin/brother rivalry along with having to take a year off due to Jesse’s near fatal car accident, they started reinventing their music and style. With much consideration, the guys decided to reunite the original four for a three show one date one city tour including the 2007 Jazz Festival. the reunion was short lived. but Jesse managed to keep the band afloat always keeping at least two or more original members in the band. 2011 brought the addition of Chris "CC" Levy the longest running new member to date. Just as many other bands, they have seen their ups and downs, but have managed to stay afloat in the local music scene for the past ten years. With notable shows such as five Jazz Festivals and opening for Framing Hanley, Prospect Hill, Tyler Read, and Dauzat / St. Marie, they are ready to continue to venture into new places and establish themselves into the music industry.
