Keller Williams is an American musician from Fredericksburg, Virginia, who began performing in the early 1990s. Williams’ music combines elements of bluegrass, folk, alternative rock, reggae, electronica/dance, jazz, funk, and other assorted genres. He is often described as a ‘one-man jam-band’ due to his frequent use of live phrase looping with multiple instruments.
On February 8, 2006, Keller Williams hit the stage at Denver’s Fillmore with a project he calls Grateful Grass. Grateful Grass – which featured Williams, Keith Moseley (The String Cheese Incident), and Jeff Austin (Yonder Mountain String Band) – performed not-so-traditional bluegrass versions of Grateful Dead favorites. The vibe in the packed house was thick and sweet; and the crowd was whisper quiet, when they weren’t singing along.
On April 29, 2008, this very special evening of music will be available for digital download at iTunes and at other digital retailers. 100% of the proceeds of REX: Live at the Fillmore will go to benefit The Rex Foundation, the charitable non-profit started by the Grateful Dead, which gives grants to worthwhile causes.
