Al Williams and the Assembly Band

R&B- Carolina Beach- Motown- Funk- Rock

Al Williams and the Assembly Band is a group of musicians that will leave its audience always asking for more. Fronted by the award winning Al Williams, the band delivers a mix of R&B, Carolina Beach, Motown, Funk and Rock that goes deep into the annals of popular music to find those "forgotten gems" that make the show memorable. Al delivers performances in the style of R&B legends such as Jackie Wilson, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, and James Brown with and energy that is best described by an audience member with the following quote "He sings these songs as if it was the first time he sang them". Al has been performing for over 40 years on a local and national level and entertains an audience with a show that can only be delivered with that experience.

Sharing the front with Al is the dynamic Laurie Capparrella. Laurie has developed quite a musical resume playing in cover bands, leading original music projects, and answering the demand for vocal work in the recording studio. Laurie has a flexible voice and is a natural fit in the Assembly performing songs originally performed by powerhouses such as Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight. Laurie comes from a musical family and is and accomplished multi-instrumentalist.

The remainder of the Assembly is a four piece core that delivers a solid foundation for vocalists. Comprised of Mike Parks on bass guitar, Mike Kiorpes on drums, Mike Quinn on guitar, and Scott DeMattos on keyboards, this group of musicians has collectively played almost every style of music on every type of stage. Known for paying attention to details, the efforts the Assembly puts into a song makes the tune familiar to the audience right from the first note.
