“Just being a trombonist while leading the band is difficult,” he said. “A lot of people have never seen a trombonist fronting a band, it can be crazy.”
Williams cited Trombone Shorty (Troy Andrews) of New Orleans’ Sixth Ward All-Star Brass Band Revue as one of his few peers in this regard.
“Everything else about leading a band is pretty much simple for me,” he said. “You have to make sure everyone’s on the same page and not in a negative environment. Myself, I run a tight ship and everyone has to be on time so you don’t let the rest of the cats down.”
