David Williams presents: Trickster Carousel

Website | Video

David Williams, Emmy winning songwriter, who has been compared to Tom Waits, Randy Newman, Leonard Cohen, presents the best cabaret band you've ever seen, with the incredible Ashlynn Manning, reminiscent of Sally Bowles from Cabaret, burning down the house with sexy, moving, passionate renditions of David's songs (with a Django inspired gypsy flair featuring the Trickster Carousel band). Channing Lynn, one of the most lively and talented performers to ever pick up a clarinet or sax, brings unsurpassed dynamic showmanship, while Duane Webster on bass, and Stephen Balgooyen on drums hold down the rhythm section. David brings in fiery gypsy jazz guitar leads as well as his raw vocals, with deep blues, jazz, and americana roots.

John William Davis

John William Davis is winner of Swallow Hill, Kerrville, and numerous other songwriting awards, he was described as follows by the editor of Sing Out! Magazine some years back: "Wandering through the halls of a music convention last fall, I was drawn like a moth to a flame by some funky finger picking, striking melodies, and clever lyrics . . . [John William Davis] is a writer who deserves more than passing comparison with the likes of Randy Newman and Tom Waits, albeit with a slightly stronger connection to blues and folk roots than either of those two guys. . . . I'm finding him my favorite songwriter at the moment" Mark D. Moss
