Guitarist DJ Williams Being Detained in the Middle East

Guitarist DJ Williams, who plays with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe along with his own DJ Williams Projekt and more, is currently being legally detained in the Middle East after what he says were “a series of missteps.”

A GoFundMe has been set up to raise money to help Williams return home. A note from the guitarist reads, “Due to a series of missteps on my part I have been detained in the Middle East for the time being.” Not much more information is given, although Williams thanks everyone for the support and writes, “I am staying positive and strong, and I’m going to come out of this a better person.”

On a post from Williams Tiny Universe bandmate Alan Evans, a bit more is revealed, as Evans posted a note from the guitarist reading, “My genuine and sincere apologies for going radio silent the past few weeks. On April 18th I flew to the Middle East to visit family and I have been detained since due to a mistake and a misunderstanding. I am staying strong, healthy and positive, and have a great team working to ensure my safe and expedient return.”
