Fredericksburg’s own Keller Williams returns to his hometown this December for his annual holiday concert to benefit the SPCA of Fredericksburg. For the 11th annual event, which takes place December 26th at the Fredericksburg Field House, Keller Williams will play one set solo, and one set with his project Kdubalicious, with DJ One Drop spinning before and after each set. 100% of the profits from the annual holiday concert will go to support the local branch of the SPCA.
Also in December, Keller Williams releases his 17th recording, titled Bass. The recording features that same Kdubalicious lineup: Keller on bass, Jay Starling on keyboards, and Mark D on drums.
That’s right, Bass is Keller’s first-ever release playing only bass guitar. The reggae/ dub/ funk delight will be released December 13, 2011, and will be available digitally and on CD at live shows and at www.kellerwilliams.net.
Keller’s recently announced New Year’s run begins December 28 at The Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, North Carolina. On December 29 and 30 the show rolls to The National in Richmond, VA and Norfolk’s NorVa respectively, with Keller Williams on stage for one set solo and one set with Kdubalicious, plus very special guests The Pimps of Joytime. For New Year’s Eve, Keller & friends will ring in 2012 at Brooklyn Performing Arts Center in Wilmington North Carolina. All four venues will also host a Keller Plays for Kids matinee performance earlier that day. Visit kellerwilliams.net for information and tickets.
