This last Sunday was one of several opportunities that I have had to see bass player Darryl Williams perform with his band and he never fails to impress audiences with his energetic music and talented group. The line up this past weekend included U-Nam on guitar, Tony Moore on drums, Jason Weber on sax, Greg Manning on keys and of course Darryl Williams on bass. During the second set, keyboardist Jonathan Fritzen made a special guest appearance as well as a fantastic guest vocalist whose name, unfortunately, I did not catch.

Several highlights from the show included a solo by guitarist U-Nam that had the audience on their feet, saxophonist Jason Weber’s use of effects on the saxophone (like wah and a doubler) and the guest performances by Fritzen.

You can check out Darryl William’s web site to find out when he will be performing near you. He hosts a several jam sessions in Temecula and San Diego that you really should attend if you’re in the area! He has special guests each and every week. You never know who’ll show up!
