Roy Rogers, the Grammy winner himself…
Rolling Stone magazine calls him “One of the rare guitar heroes who values feeling over flash.” The San Francisco Chronicle notes, “Rogers is both a sensational and a sensitive blues guitarist—certainly among the finest slide guitarists playing today.” Just back from a tour of Brazil, Roy Rogers and The Delta Rhythm Kings head to the Whittier Stage this Friday, July 13 at 8 p.m.
They’ve been featured on numerous film and soundtracks, including One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and The Hot Spot. The latter, which he recorded with Miles Davis, John Lee Hooker and Taj Mahal, garnered a Grammy nomination. In fact, Rogers has received eight Grammy nominations during his career, winning two for producing John Lee Hooker recordings.
Don’t miss out!
