Roy Rogers Starts Spring in France!

"That's not a slide on Roy Rogers' pinky, it's a time machine.  With it Rogers transports you to the Mississippi's past and future...." ~   Guitar Player

Look at your crystal ball and world wide globe and see if RR & DRK are in your future!  :)

Spring is around the corner, and we are sure all of you on the East Coast of the U.S. are more than ready for it.  You've all taken a beating this winter.  Not so here in Northern California where the daffodils are popping up, the dogwoods in bloom and the temperatures are mild!

The band is looking forward to their French tour starting next week where they will start at Billy Bob's at Disney / Paris (20th) and continue up to Abbeville to a festival at the Theatre Municipal (23rd) .  They are playing festivals, chateaux, and clubs  - so look carefully to the show listings for all information.  We know some of you are flying in from other countries to see Roy in France - so we have updated as much information as possible on the 'Tour Dates' tab on the site.

After that it will be a bit of rest before RR & DRK hit The Little Fox in Redwood City, CA.  on April 19th and then gearing up for New Orleans Jazz Festival May 3rd and Memphis in May on May 4th.  A busy year hopping the globe - so far in France, U.S., Canada, Norway and Australia already on the books. 

Keep rockin' and rollin' and as always, thanks for supporting live music! 

Check the site often for show updates.   Happy Spring!

Hey Hey!

Thanks for all of you who came out last week-end - the places were FULL of swinging dancers and screamers!   So fun !  That was a wild one at the Powerhouse in  Folsom - who knew?  :)

Hope you all in Northen California enjoyed this last big storm - we needed the precip SO badly and we hope a lot more comes our way.  The drought is a big concern in California and we are hoping for a good drench this coming Spring!  But we've had little winter and the flowers and trees are very confused!

This week-end don't miss RR & DRK w/ Special Guest Carlos Reyes at Yoshi's Oakland - a rare East Bay Sunday night show.  Please check the website often - new dates added each week and calendar is filling up for the year.  The boys are hopping as usual.  We are so fortunate to have so many loyal fans all over the U.S. , Canada and the globe!  Your support of live music is essential. 

Happy Valentines to All our Fans, Friends and Extended Family
