On Saturday, October 15th, Keller Williams will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of his album “Laugh” by performing it in its entirety — along with Tye North (Leftover Salmon) and Dave Watts (The Motet), the original musicians from the album — LIVE on the Indoor Stage at Salvage Station! Dogs In A Pile will open the show!

A few words from Keller himself about this very special show:

It’s been 20 years since my album, Laugh, came out and I think that calls for a celebration!

Join me, Tye North, and Dave Watts as we play Laugh in its entirety and attempt to recreate the studio magic live. Obviously, in the last 20 years, we have all found ways to extend and stretch out the good times. So more than likely, a four-and-a-half-minute song in the record, just quite possibly, for certain, could go to about 11 minutes. So, it will be recreating the studio experience yet enhanced.  Please enjoy responsibly. Kw

Virginian, Keller Williams, released his first album in 1994, FREEK, and has since given each of his
albums a single syllable title: BUZZ, SPUN, BREATHE, LOOP, LAUGH, HOME, DANCE, STAGE,
SANS, ADD, SPEED, and CELL. Each title serves as a concise summation of the concept guiding
each project. Keller’s albums reflect his pursuit to create music that sounds like nothing else. Un-
beholden to conventionalism, he seamlessly crosses genre boundaries. The end product is music
that encompasses rock, jazz, funk, and bluegrass, and always keeps the audience on their feet.

Keller built his reputation initially on his engaging live performances, no two of which are ever alike.
For most of his career, he has performed solo. His stage shows are rooted around Keller singing his
compositions and choice cover songs while accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, bass, guitar
synthesizer, and drum samples; a technique called live phrase sampling or “looping”.  The end result
often leans toward a hybrid of alternative folk and groovy electronica, a genre Keller jokingly calls
“acoustic dance music” or ADM.” Keller’s constant evolution has led to numerous band projects as
well; Keller & The Keels, Grateful Grass, KWahtro, Keller and the Travelin’ McCourys, Grateful
Gospel and More Than A Little to name a few. Keller can be found playing clubs and festivals
around the U.S. with these projects throughout the year.



The sandy shores of Asbury Park, New Jersey are hallowed ground in the northeast; the rolling waves have ushered generations of venerated musicians to worldwide acclaim. Dogs in a Pile, an eclectic quintet, has emerged as the heir apparent to the town’s rich musical legacy. Merging funk, jazz, and rock and roll with psychedelia, the quintet presents a completely original vibe built on kaleidoscopic soundscapes eerily reminiscent of the days of yesteryear.

The Dogs employ a unified approach to performance and songwriting, crafting aural mosaics through adept instrumentation and humble precocity. As avid storytellers, they draw inspiration from personal experiences, balancing life’s foibles with ever-present youthful sanguinity.

Dogs began when Philadelphia University of the Arts guitar gun-slinger Jimmy Law began playing with young Joe Babick (drums), a student at the Count Basie Theater program in Red Bank, NJ.  Lightning struck when they were introduced to Berklee School of Music student and bass player Sam Lucid, who immediately suggested fellow Berklee student and keyboard player Jeremy Kaplan. The addition of fellow Berklee student Brian Murray (guitar) in 2019 made for the quintessential final piece in the Dogs’ puzzle. 

A string of successful local shows drove the development of a massive northeast fan base, affectionately known as the Dog Pound. The band’s astronomical growth culminated in an epic, sold-out performance at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park during the summer of 2021. Armed with a fresh batch of new material, Dogs in a Pile is taking its perpetually evolving testament to the Great American Songbook on tour in 2022, visiting plenty of new cities and spreading good music and good energy to good people along the way.
