ROY ZIMMERMAN: WAKE UP CALL

Roy Zimmerman writes hilarious, rhyme-intensive original songs that are also incisive calls to action, smart, savvy and undeniable. “He simultaneously inspires me and makes me laugh my ass off,” says comedian/author Paul Krassner.

Zimmerman’s “Wake Up Call” is ninety minutes of these songs - funny songs like “Abstain With Me” and “I Want a Marriage Like They Had In the Bible,” heartfelt songs like “Hope, Struggle and Change” and “I Approve This Message,” and impassioned comic commentary.

In thirteen albums over twenty years, Roy has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for Peace and Social Justice. His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records, and he’s been profiled on NPR’s “All Things Considered.” His YouTube videos have amassed over seven million views, and he’s a featured blogger for the Huffington Post.

In 2012, Roy and his wife and co-writer Melanie Harby traveled 47,000 miles to complete a 50-state tour of all 49 states. (Hawaii was “Omission Accomplished,” he says.) “Wake Up Call” is a funny, tuneful and unabashedly Progressive look at what they saw and heard across America in the Obama Era.


“Zimmerman is a guy on the left skewering folks on the right with rapier-sharp lyrics ... underneath the caustic satire is a man who is surprisingly optimistic.” - Sing Out! Magazine

“Zimmerman lifted the evening... squawking and clucking his scorn with a contagious irreverence.” - Stephen Holden, New York Times

“Zimmerman has a rare gift for songwriting.” - San Francisco Chronicle

    It is on my birthday. I really want to go. Do they, by chance, have childcare?

      Happy Birthday, Catherine! I don't think there will be childcare available at the UU Church. As far as I know, we're the only thing that is going on in the church that night and we're paying to have the building opened and closed.

    I put "no" on the RSVP because it sounds as if the music is mostly about the lyrics. Is this true? I would love to come for the music, but if Zimmerman just plays his guitar and sings his meaningful lyrics, my ears would not pick it up. I'm too hard of hearing. I tried listening to him on a Web site, and I couldn't make out his words. If I am mistaken, and this concert is going to be very musical, too, please tell me because then I'd like to come.

      Jane, from what I recall it is the lyrics that make the man funny. He uses music to punctuate the humor.

      If you go to YouTube and enter Roy Zimmerman into the search mode you can find a bunch of his songs and talks. Her is an example of him singing: http://www.youtube.co...­
