Featuring D.J. Williams of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe
Friday, May 17 / 10:00 pm-12:30 am
First things first…DJ Williams is not a DJ. But he is laying down wicked guitar licks that any DJ would be salivating to sample. When he’s not hanging out deep in the funk pocket with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, he is leading his smoldering new project – DJ Williams’ Shots Fired – into bold frontiers. Presenting innovative interpretations of classic songs (his reimagining of a couple Nirvana hits will blow your lid) along with cutting edge originals, this band kicks down the floodgates with relentless energy.
Shots Fired plunges into a fluid, dance-inducing fusion of funk, rock, soul and jazz. Williams is joined by an amalgamation of Denver’s hottest stage assassins. Todd Stoops (Electric Beethoven, formerly of Kung Fu) is a true keyboard genius who always seems to be defying logic. Max MacVeety makes is easy to see why he is one of the most in-demand drummers among hip hop artists such as Lyrics Born. Laying it down on acrobatic bass is the funk-tastic freak of nature – Derrick Wong. With an emphasis on captivating melodies, transcendent songwriting, and an extremely diverse musical palette, this band is pushing boundaries into the stratosphere.
