Earl Williams - Island favorite. Earl on Saxophone - great showman with 3-5 piece band

earl_williams

Earl Williams, an Island favorite, plays Tenor Saxophone, Soprano Saxophone, Flute, Harmonica, Banjo, and Vocals.

Composer, Arranger, and Master Showman, when Earl performs he sings and tells jokes. He readily admits he survived the music business all these years because of his decision to become an entertainer, not just a musician. “Entertainment is the way to make good business out of music.”

Williams makes it his business to surround himself with musicians who can “do it all”: jazz, rhythm & blues, dance tunes - whatever it takes to captivate a crowd. His four piece band consists of Keyboard & Vocals, Bass, and Drums - featuring Earl on Saxophone.

Earl has played with many internationally famous people including Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Isaac Hayes, and Chubby Checker. He was band leader for Jerry Farber, a great comedian from Atlanta. Earl toured with The Commodores from 1976 - 1980. He started playing at the Crow’s Nest at the old Hilton Head Inn in 1987. He also played at the Mockingbird Lounge, at the Marriott, and the Blue Nite Café. In the early 90’s Earl spent most of the time out to sea performing three shows a week aboard a luxury cruise ship as a featured entertainment. Today Earl performs at The Jazz Corner, at private events, and weddings and is always a hit.
