Keller Williams, Englert Theatre
The Englert Theatre and SCOPE Productions have announced that Keller Williams will be performing at the Englert on Thursday, February 7th, 2013. Doors will open at 7 pm, with the show begining at 8 pm. Tickets go on sale Friday, November 2nd at 10 am.
One-man band Keller Williams has been defining the term “independent artist” since the early ‘90s. Williams’ legacy began with organic experimentation in live performances, creating rich atmospheres simulating a full-band sound with only a guitar and Gibson Echoplex delay system. No two performances are quite alike, and Williams’ knack for improvisation has elevated him to legend status, combining a timeless bluegrass sound with mesmerizing elements of classic and progressive rock, as well as prominent influences from go-go funk and punk. He got his big break with 1994’s Freak, and since then has released seventeen albums, including critically lauded collaborations with the String Cheese Incident, Bob Weir, Michael Franti, and Bela Fleck, to name just a few – not to mention he was a part of supergroup the Rhythm Devils with heroes Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart of none other than the Grateful Dead. Williams’ latest release, Bass, is the first to be recorded with his reggae-funk band Kdubalicious and features the hit single “Freaker By The Speaker.” The album is yet another example of the always-evolving yet consistently creative and playful musical attitude which consistently shines through his work.
General public tickets will be available at The Hub located at 138 Iowa Memorial Union, where students can U-Bill tickets, and at all Ticketmaster locations. Tickets will also be sold at The Englert Theatre Box Office at 221 East Washington Street in downtown Iowa City, or online at englert.org.
