Hi Darryl, I am in Australia and I just wanted to say that I really enjoy your new album Here to Stay. It is fantastic, infectious and uplifting. The title track, Here to Stay, gives me goosebumps and is such a pleasure to listen to. My Grandson, a 4 year old, even enjoys it and commented "Wow, that so cool Poppy" Thank you so much for this release. Looking forward to future albums from you..
Love your music
Darryl, "DW" congratulations on the release of your album. "Here to stay" is in heavy rotation here in Vegas 91.5, and the the track sounds great. You sound better than ever. I am so happy for your accomplishments and success. Here's wishing you much more of the same. David Guzman, "DG" much love to you and yours. Email me and we can catch up.
Keep The Music Strong My old Friend

What's up funky man. Carvin sounds great. I'm in San deigo in June . I will try to catch up with you. Peace
Hello Darryl, hope you are doing well..give me a call, I might have some work for you in California 702-2088254
Daryl, I gathered up a few extra programs from the KSBR Birthday Bash. I will give them to you if you'd like to have some for momento's or to send to friends and family.
I am wondering if you give bass lessons? I live in Riverside. I've playing bass for longer than I am willing to admit.
My local bass icon. Keep it funky DW!
Wife Ann and i love seeing you guys every Weds. Its our official "date nite".
Saw you on June 4, 2014 at Humphrey's Back Stage live, and had to tell you how much my wife and I enjoyed your performance. AWESOME!!! I am contacting you for info on your next performance in the New York City area. You said I could write you for tickets. If you would email me, I will give you my info so you can get me some Tickets. Can't wait to see you again. Many Thanks Jim
I used to be in a band w your brother mason, I was hoping you could connect me w him again I haven't talked to him in years and was wondering how he is.thank you Daryl for any help you can give me.
Darryl-I attend your open mike night at Q from time to time. This past Thurs there was a female vocalist, Kris, with a "K". She was great! Do you have any contact info for her, or could you give her my contact info? She did a couple of tunes, the 2nd one was a blues, and I sat in on harmonica. I would like to know if she's playing anywhere else. Your open mike night is the BEST!! You have wonderful folks sitting in - ones better than the the next! Horn players coming out of the woodwork, and they're all GOOD!! Your house band is excellent, and very versatile. I'm spreading the word to everyone I know who likes music. THANK YOU!! - Mo
Hey. cousin, it's Elaine from Bakersfield. I am planning to come to Temecula around the 9th of Feb. do you have a show happrning around that time that i can catch? Would love to see you.
your mom reminded me this week at your grand aunt's funeral that yo played jazz bass and that I should try to listen to your stuff. looking forward to it. your grand uncle david
Darryl it was great to see you last night with Elan Trotman and when we got home we bought tickets for 11/17/2013 at Spaghettini and we will be sitting in our usual front row center seats. Please make sure to bring some CD's so we can buy them directly from you instead of Amazon. If you are ever in Hutington Beach come on over for BBQ. See you soon, Van
One man can make a difference in this world. Darryl has single-handedly transformed the jazz/r&b/soul scene in the most unlikely places. Temecula? Oceanside? Believe it. His weekly jam sessions have brought out of the woodwork unbelievably talented local musicians and singers as well as brought in well-known artists from all over the country and world to these small, unlikely venues. His weekly sessions have spawned new relationships, new bands, new opportunities and a greater local awareness and appreciation for this music. If you want to participate, bring your A game and better get there early 'cause the line to play keeps getting longer. Kudos Darryl! You probably have no idea what a difference you've made.
I enjoyed the jam session at the Q restaurant last night. Thank you for making me feel welcome.
Hi Daryl, This is Arlene tell Maryann to call me please (626) 240-3396.

Really enjoying your CD That Was Then. Every song is solid. I'm amazed that you only have one CD out there. Please release more for us. Great music!

I wanted to get your phone number, and then I forgot when I lost my damn credit card. Please give me a call at 360-509-3260, or drop me an email at dalums@mac.com if you get a chance.
Just fanned you on RV. Your sound totally blew me away. What a talent. I will certainly be buying your sound. Fabulous and addicting!!!!!!
Hi Darryl. Just dropped in to let you know what a plesure it was to meet you @ NAMM. My wife & I were hanging out with Sekou & Lura @ the Carvin booth. I'm from Philadelphia. If you find out your booked to play in this area please let me know, my wife & I would love to see you with Euge Groove or anyone else.
Man i love your sound.You inspired me to get a sb 5000.What type of amp and strings do you use?
You are one of the most talented musician I have ever met. I hope you will consider me as a deep admirer, and a friend, if you will.
I love your music. You're a great artist; truly one of a kind. I would love to meet you one day, keep up the good work. What's next for you? I'm looking forward to hearing more of your great music.
It was a pleasure meeting you at the Gardena jazz concert. I hope to get as talented as you on my bass. Wish there was a way to get lessons from you. Take care and be blessed

Loving your music!!!! Keep up the great music,
I just saw you played with Hollis... do you know Ron Veliz (guitar)
Great music! ...keep it coming!
I am happy that I had an opportunity to visit your site (technology is great). I learned of you while visiting the Carvin Website where I have been trying to make a decision on purchasing a Bass Amp. On the power of your testimony (and video with the other gentleman) I plan to purchase the BX500 and a half stack speaker. Since I am on the east coast (southeast) I am not plugged into the music sence on the west coast. I plan to purchase your CD (that was then). I want my son (who is learning to play bass) to hear what a polished bass professional sounds like. Best wishes and much success to you and your family.
Not sure you'll remember my son, Adam, who was one of your bass students back at Guitar Center... well, you taught him well! His band, Moondog Matinee (from Reno) is playin in LV March 11 as part of the Neon Music Reverb. His website: www.moondogmatinee.com has some free downloads of their music. Thought you might like to see how well he's doing - thanks to YOU!!
Pleasure meeting you in parking lot today while helping a friend/worship leader move. I still play at church on weekends. My son David (Scoop) is a bassist also. He was there also. I hope he can get to meet you one day. Go to Souljournersband.com when you can. Souljourners is a progressive band. God Bless. Kevin B.
Thanks for hangin with us Saturday. See you soon at Sharons
Great to hear you and meet you with Clint at the Colony. Hope to see you soon, you groovin' cat!!!!! We're gonna get your CD.

So you let the locs go! It's been almost 3 years since seeing you in Vegas with Ghalib. I am excited for you and the success you are now seeing - keep pushing on your journey.
Hey Darryl I am an aspiring bass player - mostly classic rock, alternative stuff, blues. Hope to be able to play like Darryl Williams in another thirty years or so. Great stuff!!
Darryl (calling you by your first name like I know you personally, what unmitigated gall right? LOL) Anyway, I just heard one of your songs from your latest CD. I listen to jazz a lot, but I must say that this is the first time that I actually heard of you thanks to Music Choice on Cox Cable. Keep up the good work. Also, I'm glad to know that you're saved Bro.
Hey Darryl, We performed together a few weeks ago at Pechanga Casino (Eagles Nest). Just wanted to follow up with you. Great CD.....Sounds like you've got a winner! (Everything Must Change---NICE) Really enjoyed the hit at Pechanga---loved your sound and feel:-) I look forward to speaking and performing with you sooner than later!

Darryl it was nice to meet you and play some great music together at the Brick Marble with SaVio. Although I was a bit under the weather, I forgot about it once we all started jamming. I hope we all can jam again soon. Dont hesitate to call if you could use a sax man or a great drummer like my son. Take Care out there, BenJamin
