The Josh Williams Band in Concert
The Town of Shelter Island Recreation Department proudly presents an evening of bluegrass music with The Josh Williams Band on Saturday, January 29, 2011.
The Josh Williams Band became one of the leading explosive tributes to the tradition of music last season, after a nomination to the final round as IBMA's Emerging Artist for 2009 set their course. Their smooth vocals hold the fans spellbound. Josh, Randy, Jason & Nick blend hypnotically to take their audiences through all realms of musical sentiment, from easy-going ballads to fiery, hard-driving instrumentals. The band's unique chemistry with each other, their charisma and connection to their fans, along with their inherent musical and lyrical gifts, are producing riveting performances to sold-out audiences. Their instant appeal to every demographic is soaring JWB to new heights. With the electrically-charged magical sounds that make them so popular, Josh led the band to become "the people's choice" when they won 2010 IBMA Emerging Artist. Josh also took home the Guitar Player of the Year award as well, in the fast company of monster players Tony Rice and Bryan Sutton. The JWB version of "Cherokee Shuffle" was also nominated for best instrumental.
Rounder Records recording artist Josh Williams and his band pay homage to the roots of country and bluegrass, with dynamic vocals and great picking. For a great night of bluegrass with a touch of "twang", don't miss this great band! Doors open at 7:00, show begins at 7:30.
