South Louisiana native, Wes Williams, brings to life the sound and soul of New Orleans with his group, Wes Williams Band. With national festivals, headlining tours, and over 100,000 plays on Spotify last year, the band has gained a loyal fan base across the country. Rooted in funk, layered with a horn section, and topped off with a front man that makes every show feel like a gospel tent revival, WWB is growing their audience from the southwest to a national platform.
Austin, TX radio host Jeff James said of the band "If James Brown and John Mayer were to have a musical baby together, Wes Williams Band is it. If you like songs that get stuck in your head, a band that plays every note with soul, and funky, groovy riffs that move the body, Wes Williams Band is it."
"This is soul music. Wes writes these catchy, sexy songs, and backs them up with a band that rivals James Brown."

"Before last night, at The Mint in Los Angeles, I hadn't been to church since I was ten years old. The Wes Williams Band took the stage and proceeded to lead concert goers through a two hour New Orleans-style Soul Revival that beamed with joy and top notch musicianship."
