He's BAAAACK!!!! We loved his show last time!
Let's do Saturday Night at my favorite place for blues, The Twisted Tail! Set in a Southern inspired Bourbon House & Juke Joint, The Twisted Tail presents you with an eclectic mix of American Whiskey and gastronomic offerings from their Charcoal Grill - straight from the fire to your plate! They have a nice wine selection and awesome martinis as well!
I will be there at 7 for dinner. The music starts at 9:00.
Regional Mid-Atlantic guitarist/singer/writer Roger Girke has been performing and recording steadily since 1975.
By 1978 Roger scored a pivotal touring gig with Capitol/Ariola Recording Artists Pickins' who were legendary at the time for their funky fusion of blues rock. Contacts made during that early success paved the way for a string of touring opportunities with diverse artists on Arista, Elektra and RCA.
At the conclusion of twenty years of playing over 200+ dates per year year as a first-call guitarist, Roger focused on his own projects. In 1995 Roger relocated to Delaware and immersed himself in the vibrant blues scene in Delaware and nearby Philly and Baltimore, with regular nightclub and festival performances.
The Roger Girke Band and has released three critically acclaimed CD's,
Roger Girke and The Funkytwisters – “We Got The Funky Blues” Teletone Records 2001

The Roger Girke Band’s artistry has been validated with many positive critical reviews and a number of industry awards. The 2004 CD release "My Baby Loves That Stuff" won an esteemed "Top 5 Self-Produced CD" award in the 2005 International Blues Challenge – and their 2008 CD release “Shake It” was awarded a “Top 6 Self-Produced CD” award in the 2009 International Blues Challenge. These awards are judged by industry heavyweights such as Alligator and Blind Pig records and terrestrial and satellite broadcasters, writers and publicists.
Also, from over 100 competitors, The Roger Girke Band was a top 10 live finalist in the 2009 International Blues Challenge, which takes place every year in Memphis, TN.
