Mr. Minns started singing, dancing and putfing on a comedy act called, "Bill and Sam." His first novel "Island Boy," contains lots of Bahamian history and it is anticipated that his upcoming novel will be just as informative and educational for visitors and Bahamians alike.

In the '70s, he worked with the Ministry of Tourism, and has also worked at the Silver Slipper, Ardastra Gardens & Zoo, and Montagu Beach Hotel. Mr. Minns passion is to make people laugh and he will not miss a chance to promote The Bahamas. His current hit songs are: "How Junkanoo Began" and "Sunday Christian," the latter of which is nominated for the People's Choice award.
