Roy Rogers “Pundits who bemoan the scarcity of guitar gods haven’t laid ears on Roy Rogers, whose slide riffs could peel a crawfish.” USA Today Manzarek Rogers Band
Ray Manzarek and Roy Rogers have formed a new four piece ensemble and recorded a hard driving blues/rock project that is a stirring and masterful collaboration. The iconic co-founder of The Doors and the master slide guitarist/producer are seemingly an odd pairing – but their new recording unleashes a stunning musical recording.
Manzarek-Rogers Band: Americana music magazine No Depression wrote of
the CD, “The two artists are true masters of their craft and they are at their absolute
best here,” while the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said, “You can hear echoes of The Doors,
traces of blues, flashes of jazz and touches of rock. It’s hard to put into words the
magical music world they’ve created here, but it works.”
The Manzarek-Rogers Band is coming to the Irish Rose on February 7th – tickets are $35 onsite, or you can buy them online through Lazarbear.
