Keller Williams at Park West (18+)8:30pm GA/ doors 7:30
ChiIL Live Shows will be there...will YOU?! Highly recommended. We've had the great pleasure of interviewing Keller Williams and shooting stills at his adult and kindie shows for years. Check out our live show shots from Summer Camp Music Festival, Kidzapalooza, and Chicago's own Park West last year.
This multitalented musician goes beyond the jam band genre with a plethora of great releases for adults, a kindie (kids' indie) album, and a kids' book/CD combo!! We've given away loads of his CDs, and even the book/CD to our lucky readers.
This time through he's just playing for the big kids (AKA adults and kids 18+).
It was great to meet Keller, his wife, Emily, and the kids, Ella and Cabell last year at Park West in Chicago. Click HERE for our show stills and sneek peek.
Since ChiIL Live Shows & ChiIL Mama have a national following in the jam band and kindie communities check out Keller's upcoming tour dates beyond Chi-Town on his web site and keep up to date on Twitter, FB and social media sites.
