Concert Review by Rich Denis on 3/13/2014   

Keller Williams rolled through Austin on the 2nd night of a 4 night Texas run at Emo’s during his What The Funk? Tour.  A collaboration with More Than a Little that definitely brings the funk!  More Than a Little members E.J. Shaw (bass), Tony Fairchild (drums), Gerrard Johnson (keys), Tonya Lazenby (vocals) and Sugah Davis (vocals) came to show Austin how to get down.   

Getting it started was Kalu James, a local Austin Blues-Rock and Soul band.  Kalu (vocals and guitar) and members JT Hole (lap steel and lead guitar), Nic Jay (bass), Robb Kidd (drums) and Michael Ruben (harmonica) got the crowd going with their soulful blues.

A quick set change later, Keller came out to warm up the crowd in traditional Keller style with a short solo set.  Bathed in a golden glow, Keller built it up loop after loop with slow percolating riffs.  Mental Insta is always a nice way to get it going.  Before you knew it the crowd was moving in sync as he moved through his set.  Finally when the time was right bringing out the members of More Than a Little and it just got better from there.  We floated on freshies, jammed to the best feelings, dranks Sampson’s wine, talked to the fist, and before you knew how it felt we were singing Mary Jane. 

Keller and More Than a Little came ready to get down.  They didn’t disappoint.  The buzz on the way back to the parking lots was proof of that. 

Setlist:

Mental Instra, Buena, I Am Elvis, Freshies, Hollywood Freaks>Doo Wop (That Thing), Mighty High, My Sisters and Brothers, Let’s Jam>Best Feeling>Stranger, She Rolls>You Don’t Know How It Feels, Hey Ho Jorge, Sampsons Wine, Talk To The Fist, Right Here> Mary Jane

Encore:
