Keller Williams

March 11 Keller Williams Whiskey Roadhouse, 2701 23rd St., Council Bluffs 6:30 p.m., Tickets are $18, http://www.caesars.com/whiskeyroadhouse If the name Keller Williams evokes images of banjos, fiddles and washboards, then you’re not too far off. The Virginia-based multi-instrumentalist has earned a stellar reputation in the “jam band” world playing alongside acts such as Yonder Mountain String Band, The String Cheese Incident and Ratdog. Taking traditional bluegrass and folk, Williams infuses electronic elements, jazz and funk to breathe new life into his music. The “one man jam band” captivates his audiences with frequent live phase looping (known as the Gibson Echo-plex system) with everything from theremins to a Gordon Anderson custom eight-string guitar. The most incredible thing about Williams is he is self-taught and can’t read a single note. Even if his style of music isn’t your thing, seeing him perform is a worthwhile experience as he usually takes the stage alone. The massive amount of sound that he is able to emit is a feat in itself. Currently on a solo tour, Williams lands in the Omaha area this Friday.
