Call Roy a wizard, a supernatural sliding wonder, Roy Rogers may be the most-skilled, bottleneck slide guitar player in the world. With dazzling virtuosity, Roy has earned a reputation for sensational live performances having electrified audiences from the Montreux Jazz Festival to his years of touring with John Lee Hooker’s Coast to Coast Blues Band. Widely recognized as a blues innovator, Roy has been nominated for multiple Grammy Awards as well as two W.C. Handy Awards. Rolling Stone magazine said, “Roy Rogers is an exceptionally articulate slide guitarist, whether 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.”
As part of his 8 Grammy nominations as producer and performer, Roy has become an internationally acclaimed producer of recordings for John Lee Hooker to Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. He has received numerous accolades for his songwriting and his work on movie soundtracks and television. Roy’s recent collaboration with the late Ray Manzarek, The Doors keyboardist, titled “Translucent Blues,“ debuted #6 on the Billboard charts, and reached #1 on the American Roots Rock Chart in 2011.
As a recording artist, as well as a producer and composer, Rogers has recorded with Carlos Santana, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Steve Miller, Sammy Hagar and a slew of other great artists. He has been touring worldwide since 1982 and has performed in some of the world’s most prestigious festivals. The Delta Rhythm Kings feature Steve Ehrmann on bass guitar and Kevin Hayes on percussion.
