ROBBY ROBERSON BAND (WITH ERIC RAMSEY)
ROBBY ROBERSON BAND
RICH ROOTSY RHYTHMS
SATURDAY, MAR 24 @ 7PM
The Robby Roberson Band performs an Americana style of music rich in rootsy rhythms and flavors of rock, blues, folk, gospel and jazz. Our repertoire of original songs are stories of fact, fiction, joy, and sorrow embedded in a musical fabric that consists of a dynamic blend of tradition acoustic and modern instruments.
Eric is two-time champion of the Phoenix Blues Society's Blues Showdown. He was a semi-finalist at the 2017 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. He won the Stefan George Memorial (Tucson Folk Festival) Songwriting Competition, and has been tapped for the prestigious Songwriter's Showcase produced by Tempe Center for the Arts, filmed for PBS distribution. He's a regularly a featured performer at the Prescott Center for the Arts, and has headlined shows at the Highlands Center and the Flagstaff Folk Project in Arizona.
With soaring vocals and organic arrangements, Eric writes from experience about the human condition - at times sensitive, at times humorous, always thought-provoking. His arrangements and delivery encompass a spectrum of styles, from delicate fingerpicking to raucous, bluesy bottleneck slide.
"It's A Rough World Baby" is his third release, following the acclaimed "Up We Go" in 2016 and 2014's debut "Wills And Won'ts.
His live performances are captivating, entertaining and accessible, and he's a favorite on the Blues and Folk Festival circuits not only for his dynamic performances but for his workshops on slide guitar techniques and tricks.
He lives in the Phoenix area with his long-suffering and patient wife, three kids, four (yes, four, to date) dogs of indeterminate pedigree, and can often be found in the garage, where his family prefer he practice.
