D.J. Williams is performing a surprise homecoming show next Wednesday, June 14th, following his arrival home to the United States, with his solo group D. J. Williams’ Shots Fired — an all-star collective of funk musicians from across the scene. The celebration, dubbed “D.J.’s Deportation Celebration – a Welcome Home Party,” follows Williams’ detainment in the Middle East, which saw the guitarist of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe held over an issue at customs, and his subsequent release back to the United States.Slated for Interscope Records’ showcase room, The Peppermint Club, in West Hollywood, the night is sure to be a jubilant welcoming party for those who missed the musician while he was away. For D.J.’s Deportation Celebration, Williams will be joined by Rashawn Ross (Dave Matthews Band), Max MacVeety (Lyrics Born), Pete Griffin (Dr. John), David Veith (Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe) and Kenneth Crouch (Eric Clapton/Lenny Kravitz). In a statement, Williams said, “It’s been a hell of a ride to get here, but I’m back and ready to rage with my Shots Fired crew once again!” Tickets for this intimate, limited-space show at The Peppermint are on-sale now, with advanced ticket purchases encouraged. You can get tickets here.
