DJ Williams and Band

DJ Williams, the electric guitarist, songwriter, and producer known for his explosive live performances and groundbreaking musical style, announces his eagerly awaited 26-night summer tour. This announcement comes on the heels of a successful 21-date spring tour, as Williams takes the stage in celebration of his latest album, By Way of RVA, an evocative tribute to Richmond, VA, where he refined his eclectic musical prowess.

Celebrated for his dynamic stage presence, Williams is set to deliver an unmatched live music experience with the DJ Williams Band as they journey across the United States. Premier Guitar hails him as “… a monster… an inventive, effective, and ear-catching soloist, armed with a warm tone and superior chops.” The tour kicked off on May 3rd in New Orleans at Le Bon Temps Roule, aligning with the New Orleans Jazz Fest After Dark, and concludes on July 13th in Williams’ native Colorado, at Goose Station in Golden.

The band’s lineup for the summer includes the exceptional talents of drummer Ben Atkind, formerly of the popular jam band Goose; Steph Orsini handling the bass; and Macon Mann on keyboards. “Ben’s addition has been fantastic; he brings a tremendous energy that enhances our live sound,” remarks Williams. The set list spans across Williams’ recent projects, reflecting his musical journeys, experiences, and the magic that comes from a life dedicated to music on the road.

Pleasure People

At times moody and emotional, at times downright eerie, mysterious, and slightly subversive, Pleasure People is both difficult to categorize and immediately recognizable due to Nick’s unusual guitar tuning, cerebral lyrical content, and the use of instruments as varied as cello, mandolin, banjo,  banjolele , bass, and drums. Pleasure People can be labeled as Alternative / Folk music, though you’ll find elements of  two-steppin’ Americana and Bluegrass interspersed with quiet  musings on family shadows, skid-mounted love, and half-haunted houses, performed by as few as Nick Cantine on solo guitar up to a full six-piece band.

Edgey, gritty and moody, Pleasure People’s lyrics and lyrical melodies shine against the backdrop of unusual and intricate arrangements combined with haunting harmonies. Their songs are poetic, sometimes a bit dark, deeply personal, and yet ultimately feel-good fun. Pleasure People is not quite like anything you’ve heard lately, and we think definitely not to be missed.

Gregg Hill

Gregg Hill began writing songs in seventh grade, but he never really thought of himself as a performer — until he moved to New Orleans. Inspired by the Big Easy and other artists who call it home, Hill embarked on yet another new chapter in a life that has contained many, honing his live-audience entertaining skills — while forging relationships with those artists. The singer, guitarist and pianist then recruited two of the city’s finest — bassist/vocalist Roland Guerin and drummer Doug Belotte — as the rhythm section for his latest album, Bayou St. John, released in September 2023.

Named for the region that connects Lake Pontchartrain to the Mississippi River, Bayou St. John is also the place where Hill wrote most of the album’s eight tracks. Each conveys the easygoing nature (and accomplished picking) of this folk-tinged Americana artist; but they’re also something more: masterfully painted tableaux capturing moments in time with charm and emotional resonance.

Jonathan Jacky

Jonathan Jacky is a freelance musician, independent recording artist, producer, composer and multi-instrumentalist currently active in the sacred Black Hills of South Dakota and Wyoming. He has a background as a classically trained trumpeter, receiving his Bachelor’s of Music (BM) in performance from Wright State University (Dayton, OH) in 2017, and a Master’s of Music (MM) in performance from the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) in 2019. Throughout his collegiate and professional career, Jonathan has played a variety of musical ensembles including wind symphony, orchestra, jazz band, trumpet choir, traditional-style brass band, New Orleans-style brass band, various small chamber wind ensembles, indie rock bands, and multiple collaborations with piano accompanists when performing solo trumpet works.

Jonathan’s hallmark trumpet performing achievement thus far came in the fall of 2016 when he won Wright State University’s School of Music Concerto Competition performing Alexander Artunian’s Trumpet Concerto in Ab. Jonathan was the featured soloist on a concert the following spring semester in 2017 where he performed the work with the Wright State University Orchestra under the direction of the internationally renowned faculty violinist/conductor Dr. In-Hong Cha. Other notable performing achievements include advancing as a finalist in Wright State School of Music honors recital in his junior and senior years (‘16,’17) and singing baritone with Wright State University’s Collegiate Chorale at Carnegie Hall in New York City in February of 2014 for the group’s performance of Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria.
