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.

""The guitar master is one of the greatest slide guitar players anywhere…."
~ The 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
