On record and in person, you can always depend on Williams' rockin' Zydeco to lift your spirits and move your feet. For this outing on his own Cha Cha label, it's a Williams convention, a multi-generational family affair from top to bottom... the best Zydeco in the business." ~ Grant Britt, No Depression Americana and Roots Music "Williams has lots of variety in his first CD in almost six years... a professional musician since 1985, Williams shows his skills are as sharp as ever with eight original songs about good times, heartaches, faithful friends and even a rare Zydeco Christmas song." ~ Herman Fuselier, The Times of Acadiana
