Williams Brothers Band has two big events on tap in Grand Valley
Nearly six years have passed since The Williams Brothers Band recorded an album, prompting James Williams to put together two events to change that.
The first show, which will be the primary recording for The Williams Brothers Band’s next live album to be released as soon as this spring on Big Momma’s Records, will be at 9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at Mesa Theater and Lounge, 538 Main St.
The live recording will include appearances from acoustic duo James and Phil Williams, the immediate members of The Williams Brothers Band, plus the “Big Band” lineup, James Williams said.
D&G Railroad and Chloe Williams, James’ daughter, will open the all-ages show.
Tickets cost $7 in advance through Mesa Theater, Seeds of Revolution or Rhema Music & Clothing Co., or $10 at the door.
The band plans to perform new material.
The next event James Williams coordinated will be more a celebration of the local music scene, he said.
The Williams Brothers & Friends show will be at 10 p.m. Saturday, March 1, at Sabrosa, 122 S. Fifth St. The free show will be open to those 21 and older.
Representatives from more than a dozen local bands will collaborate with The Williams Brothers for a live recording to be released locally at a later time, James Williams said.
Rehearsals will be necessary for such a large show. Those will begin at 2 p.m. on show day and will be free and open to attend by those 21 and older.
Slated to appear with The Williams Brothers Band at Sabrosa are members from: Zolopht & The Destroyers, Lowlands, Pineapple Crackers, Wheel, Flat Top Reed, We Speak Imaginese, Jack+Jill, Dualakoo, Intertwined, Bronco Country, No Outlet, Showcage, plus special guests Charles King, Donny Morales, Will Whalen and That Guy.
