Jersey City To Welcome The Unique and Unpredictable by Debra Kate Schafer What is a Keller Williams solo concert like? It is unique and unpredictable, just like him. He is a genre defying musician with a career that spans over 20 years and one of the most impressive discographies. No two performances of his are alike, as nothing is pre-recorded and he creates his own original loops on stage during the show. Williams will be on the guitar, singing his heart out, and playing his “acoustic dance music” in Jersey City at White Eagle Hall on Mar. 1. To see the show, you can buy tickets on ticketfly.com. From The Heart to NYC by Debra Kate Schafer Even though it may seem that streaming has taken over the music scene, CDs are not a thing of the past. In fact, the ever soulful Jamie McLean Band is about to have their very own CD release party at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC. The heartfelt, southern rock, blues-infused singer/songwriter and guitarist Jamie McLean is exactly what you need to see live. His pure rock ‘n’ roll style is evident in his character and all of what him and his band do, so it is no doubt that their new album, One and Only, will be any less amazing than their last.
