Jason D Williams to hit two Oklahoma resorts

Jason D Williams has spent a lifetime at the piano connecting with rock ‘n’ roll greats, while creating a persona that’s 100% original. The musician and singer-songwriter returns to Cherokee Casino & Hotel Roland on 11 October at 8 p.m. and Cherokee Casino & Hotel West Siloam Springs 12 October at 9 p.m. Both shows are free to the public.

Mentored by Memphis Slim, Williams’ high-energy performance has been hailed by the AP, New York Post, Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone Magazine. He self-describes his unique sound as Jackson Pollock meets Vladimir Horowitz meets Joe Namath meets Jerry Lee Lewis.

Playing everything from Ray Charles, Dr. Feel Good and classical pieces to his own work, the powerhouse pianist is known for doing backflips off his piano and playing with his feet.

Williams released his debut album, “Tore Up,” with RCA in 1989. He began to tour and released “Wild” with Sun Records in 2014. In 2004, Williams released “Don’t Get None Onya’,” birthing his own label in a powerful blend of honky-tonk country and Memphis rock ‘n’ roll. The albums “Rockin’,” “Killer Instincts” and “Recycled” soon followed.

The showman tours up to 200 shows per year. Williams performed all of the hand shots for Roger Ebert’s movie “Great Balls of Fire,” starring Dennis Quaid. He was also featured in “The War Room,” documenting Bill Clinton’s race for the White House.

His electrifying talent and seemingly endless energy have scored him numerous TV appearances on the likes of “Regis and Kathy Lee,” “Nashville Now” and “Entertainment Tonight,” along with various shows on MTV, VH1 and CMT.
