For this Sunday’s service in LA–June 12th at noon at The Bootleg, the theme is FREEDOM. And, our featured musical guest is a personification of freedom–a tap dancer, percussionist, instrumentalist and all around, pure jazz expression. Aaron Williams was sent our way by friends in Woodstock who happened to see him perform in LA and wrote me, saying, “This guys amazing! And, SO perfect for The Secret City.” We love a great recommendation–and, so–ladies and gentlemen, Aaron will be performing for us this Sunday.
Here’s his bio:
Aaron Williams is an accomplished percussionist, tap dancer, pianist, composer, jazz musician, vocalist and teacher, originally from Kansas City, Missouri. After receiving his BA in Commercial Music & Percussion Performance from Missouri Western State University, Aaron moved to Los Angeles where he has been teaching and performing since. Some of his recent work includes headlining the 2015 International Jugglers’ Association (IJA) Cascade of Stars show in Quebec City, Canada with Collision of Rhythm; tap dancing in Coca-Cola’s America the Beautiful commercial, which premiered during SuperBowl XLVIII and aired during the Winter Olympics in Sochi; teaching college-level tap courses at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa; and performing at the Chautauqua Institution Amphitheater in New York with Bronkar Lee, “the world’s only rhythmic juggling beatboxer!” Currently, Aaron teaches music at Children’s Community School, is a company member of Linda Sohl-Ellison’s Rhapsody In Taps, and
