Karl Denson Tiny Universe guitarist D.J. Williams and his band, Shots Fired, are on the front lines of SoCal’s new-era funk scene. An entire music community has materialized around the band’s residency shows, no two of which are the exact same, thanks to an impressive rotating roster that features some of the biggest names in today’s funk, rock, and jam scenes. Performing regularly for the past year almost exclusively in Los Angeles and San Diego, Williams has decided to take his band on field trips for a very limited number of quick strikes while they prepare to release their first album, Live From Over Where.For their Las Vegas debut, Williams has — for one night only — renamed his collective “Bowls Fired,” in recognition of the victims of the recent and horrific attack on the city by a lone gunman. The “Bowls Fired” moniker is also a double entendre that references the party’s host, Brooklyn Bowl Vegas, while giving a wink to the band’s cannabis activism. After being detained in the Middle East for 42 nights — in conditions that would make Amnesty International and the U.N. cringe — for possession of a vape pen, Williams was deported and immediately signed a sponsorship deal with Legion of Bloom, who handed out their top shelf “Monarch” vape pens during a recent LA residency.For this one-time-only engagement in Las Vegas, D.J. Williams’ Bowls Fired! will include Rashawn Ross (Dave Matthews Band), James Casey (Trey Anastasio Band), Andy Geib (Slightly Stoopid), Chris Stillwell (Greyboy Allstars), Todd Stoops (Electric Beethoven) and John Staten (Pimps of Joytime) performing a selection of future funk classics.
