One-Man Band Keller Williams Begins His Solo Tour at the State Theatre

Instrument looping master Keller Williams will perform a jam-packed solo set at the State Theatre tonight, March 21, at 9 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $25 and the doors open at 8 p.m.

Hailing from Fredericksburg, Va, Keller Williams has been on the music scene since the early 90s, recording more than 20 albums and touring with the likes of Umphrey’s McGee, The String Cheese Incident, and Yonder Mountain String Band. Tonight’s performance will be the first show of his solo tour after recently finishing his “What the FUNK” tour with More Than a Little, the band that collaborated with Williams on his latest album.

Keller’s musical style comes from a variety of genres — like rock, folk, reggae, and funk — that he incorporates into his “one-man band” shows. By looping the sounds of guitars, piano, percussion, and more through pedals, he creates the illusion that you are listening to an entire ensemble of jam musicians.
Check out his solo performance from the Gathering of the Vibes Music and Art Festival in 2012.
