Guitarist D.J. Williams (Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe) is touring SHOTS FIRED, his notorious Denver dance party, across North America this year and Funk Nation will never be the same.

Picture of Shots Fired

With Shots Fired, Williams has assembled an all-star roster of the nation’s leading funk-rock musicians.

This includes members of Dave Matthews Band, Lenny Kravitz, Slightly Stoopid, Trey Anastasio Band, Lyrics Born, Soulive, Greyboy Allstars, and many others, switching the exact lineup around every time so as to ensure that every Shots Fired show is a one-of-a-kind throw-down that you just can’t get from anything other than music made in the moment, for the moment.

From the moment the band’s first single, “She’s No Good,” dropped into rotation on SiriusXM radio this past spring, Shots Fired has been designated as a 2018 “heat-seaker” and “artist to watch.”

Their instant appeal comes down to Williams’ songwriting, matched live by his incendiary guitar solos and accented by the Shots Fired horns. Given D.J.’s penchant for topping off raw beats with refined melodies, Shots Fired is best served on the rocks and on the dance floor.

Just don’t let D.J.’s name confuse you, because this guitarist is laying down grooves any “DJ” would love to sample.
