Randy Barnes leaving Josh Williams Band

Josh Williams has announced on Facebook that one of the original members of his band is moving on.

“In a business where change is inevitable, the time has come to make a personnel change within the Josh Williams Band. After nearly 3 years of serving the band as bass player, tenor singer and road manager, it saddens us to be parting ways with Randy Barnes.

The band will be continuing on and we plan to name a new band member in the near future.

We wish Randy the best in his future endeavors and thank him for his dedication and service to the Josh Williams Band.”

Randy tells us that it had simply reached a point where creative and professional differences had reached an impasse. Such is the way when talented and artistic people collaborate.

We’ll post whatever we are able to learn about Randy’s future plans, and Josh’s next bass player.
