Other than the number of members, what separates Williams from similarly minded jam bands such as Phish and the String Cheese Incident (with whom he recorded his '99 debut, Breathe) are his quirky, offbeat songs that have a certain naive charm. On his latest album, Home, Williams excitedly ponders the airport's "Moving Sidewalk," noting that "the right side is for standing," while working a chugging tribal-funk beat. And on the reggae-driven "Dogs," he considers the intricacies of dog romance, imparting with a certain gravity that "he's a bed hog, she's leaky." More goofy than clever, Williams' best talent is as a showman -- regaling with his technical prowess and a lighthearted smirk, dancing and making funny faces like Wayne's World's Garth in a H.O.R.D.E. tee shirt.
