notloB Music presents

JD Williams’ senior recital

Contact JD Williams through his website - - to make reservations; if there is room, the general public will be allowed in on a first come/first served basis.

presented by notloB Music

JD Williams, featured artist
As a professional musician working in New England’s Folk music scene, JD has a passion for performance. Studying Professional Music with a minor in American Roots Music and a focus on mandolin at Berklee College of Music afforded him the opportunity and privilege to learn performance techniques from Dave Hollender, Jane Miller, Kimberly Khare, Lucy Holstedt, Joe Galeota, Jimmy Kachulis, Jerry Leake, Joe K. Walsh, Bruce Molsky, Maeve Gilchrist, Matt Glaser, and the late John McGann. Teaching mandolin on the side, JD tours internationally with acoustic Americana band Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters and can be seen performing with artists such as Nathan Day, Cat and The Moon, and The Common Denominators.

Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters

Amy Gallatin: guitar, vocals
Eric Levenson: upright bass
Roger Williams: dobro, vocals

The Common Denominators
Jordan Alleman: banjo, vocals
Avery Ballotta: fiddle, vocals
Dan Bui: upright bass, vocals
Adam Moore: guitar, vocals


Act I: Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters
Amy, Roger, Eric, and JD perform selected songs from their 2014 release Everything I Wanted Love To Be, featuring the works of songwriters from all over the world—including John Cadley (New York), Ryan Roberts (Canada), and Elly Beurskens (the Netherlands).

Act II: Williams Squared
Roger and JD showcase tunes that they each wrote over the years, utilizing slightly different styles and approaches as they unfold melodic explorations of the resonator guitar and mandolin, respectively, as well as the father-son dynamic that is more easily observed in a duo setting.

Act III: The Common Denominators
Jordan, Avery, Dan, Adam, and JD dig some gems out of the bluegrass coalmine (who threw the gems into the mineshaft we’ll never know), mixing in some original material to produce an alchemical byproduct of tones that are both new and old, traditional and modern.

Spreaders has toured extensively throughout the northeast and has many tape releases on his label Babysungtapes and has a forthcoming split with Matt Luczak.

Matt Luczak - New York based artist/musician with a Golden Retriever, Matt Luczak has been active since 2001 and has worked under the monikers Cavepainter, Yogi Sartorialistand Shake of the Death Rattle. Matt is also the drummer of The Jazzfakers, Hyena Theives, Ikku and Gasm as well as many free-jazz collaborations. His solo noise is a harsh rendition of tape loops, mixer feedback and broken electronics, he also uses heavily manipulated tape samples of his unique drumming to add to the tapestry of sound. Luczak has toured across the country and is well established in the NYC noise and free-jazz scene, he has many releases on numerous labels and has a split cassette soon to be released with Spreaders.

With his self-titled debut album, “Stash!”, set to be released in September 2015, Stash is blazing his own trail showcasing his highly energetic and personable live show featuring old favorites and new originals that feature both the tender wooden tones and blends of acoustic music and the angular energy and grooves of heavy metal.

His influences range from: Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins to Professor Longhair. he is also the only brother that lives away from New Orleans for long periods of time, making places like New York, Memphis, and Oregon his home. Today he hopes to pass his knowledge on to his children like Khalif who has taken this great gift and made it something else all together.

Khalif Neville, born in New Orleans but growing up in Western Massachusetts has learned from one of the greatest from day one. His father, Charles Neville had him practicing the fundamentals of music at a vary young age, which certainly payed off as he is now the leader of his own band, Big-Chief & The Defenestrators, as well as a dangerous pianist. Some of his personal influences include Professor Longhair, Red Garland, Oscar Peterson, Oscar Pettiford, James Booker, Charlie Parker and of course Charles Neville. His band is a mix of Hip-Hop/Funk which clearly bears the Neville stamp yet has a flavor all its own. You can find his music on, he is currently working on fusing Hip-Hop, Funk, Jazz, and EDM into one gumbo of greatness.

Ralph Rosen - percussion

The Jon Damian Quartet This exciting quartet delivers an array of Jon Damian’s original music inspired by people and places, tradition, and visions of new possibilities.

He will be joined by a stellar cast of players; Allan Chase on saxophone, Bob Nieske on bass and Ralph Rosen on percussion.

Jon Damian is an active international performer, composer, lecturer, clinician and author as well as a professor at The Berklee College of Music.

“…the most experienced and admired guitar teacher I know”          Jim Hall

“ Jon is one of the few musicians I know who has found his own unique voice and the courage to stay true to it. He continues to be an inspiration and example.        Bill Frisell

“….a very special musician”        Mike Stern

“….and the rhythm guitar part was handled beautifully by Jon Damian” Keith Lockhart

Allan Chase is a jazz saxophonist and educator. He chairs the Berklee Ear Training department and appears as a soloist on over forty CDs, and LPs and movie soundtracks.

Bob is currently Jazz Artist-in-Residence at Brandeis University and on the faculty of New England Conservatory.

He really does something different”  Jimmy Giuffre
