Roy Rogers December Update

Happy Holidaze - as they say! 

Roy and the band take a break from their studio work this week-end.  (It's going to be a stunning record!) Record - ha ha - they don't call it that anymore...but you get the drift.   

Tonight, Friday December 12th,  Roy Rogers and Carlos Reyes will be doing a duet at Blues Against Blindness at The Great American Music Hall for Wavy Gravy's Seva Foundation.  

Tomorrow night, Saturday, December 13th Roy Rogers & DRK will be performing in Redwood City at a Ball - see details on the show page - get out of the rain and come on down!  See you there!!

Then it's back to the studio next week...hard work but sounding fantastic.

  Keep safe and Warm this Holiday Season!!

“Pundits who bemoan the scarcity of guitar gods haven’t laid ears on Roy Rogers, whose slide riffs could peel a crawfish.” ~ USA Today
Press Quote
"Rogers is both a sensational and a sensitive blues guitarist - certainly among the finest slide guitarists playing today. His wailing slide guitar sound and churning rhythms (when needed), mark him and his work as of the highest caliber." ~ San Francisco Chronicle

"Rogers is an exceptionally articulate slide guitarist, either he's scorching Robert Johnson's 'Ramblin' Blues' or taking a lovely, lyrical journey...or rockin' it out. One of the rare guitar heroes who values feeling over flash." ~ Rolling Stone

“Thatʼs not a slide on Roy Rogersʼ pinky, itʼs a time machine. With it, Rogers transports you to the Mississippi Deltaʼs past and future...” ~ Guitar Player
