Wonderful video by Yaniv Greidy of Rev. KM Williams jamming with local blues artists in a house party in Jaffa.
The music that KM Williams plays reflects his interest in the roots of the blues – his guitar playing is very rhythmic, very concentrated melodic riffs and melodically responsive to the sung tune. His sound is harsh and decisive.
— Yaron Ben Ami
The dirty sound, the tapping guitar picking, the tough voice of Williams and the repertoire of old and new blues songs – all of which fostered the anticipated juke atmosphere upon the club.

Before the end Bar Rashi and Dorchin returned and the show leaped on the electric train tracks, speeding and rolling a great stampede to the finish. At this stage the club “juke factor” was so high it was hard to distinguish between the beating of Bar Rashi and the stomping of the crowd.
