O’s Notes: Williams opens the show with “Roshambo”, a funky guitar solo that excited the crowd right away. He moves into a pop vocal “People Watching” and then changes things up with some vocal gymnastics on “Juggler”. This pattern continues and we realize that this man is a natural entertainer! This is a solo effort with the use of a multitude of electronics, repeaters and tape loops. We are normally opposed to such but in this case it is executed very well. Furthermore Williams doesn’t use electronics to mask his shortcomings. He is a very talented guitarist and vocalist. And he performed each of the loops during the performance as well as we saw on the fitness break midway through the show (after “Ninja”). It was easy to engage and enjoy his show.
