Jason D. Williams to perform in Sweetwater

March 16, 2012

Jason D. Williams will be bringing his energetic style of music to Sweetwater again, Friday, April 13, at the Municipal Auditorium, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Hearing Williams and his great piano playing is entertaining in itself, but seeing him live is a whole different experience. This musician gets physically involved in his music. He rarely just sits at the piano, but is usually all around it. That’s why he’s often compared to music legend Jerry Lee Lewis.
