Roy Rogers & The Delta Rhythm Kings

4545 N Lincoln Ave · The Myron R. Szold Music & Dance Hall · 773.728.6000


Born in Redding, California in 1950, Roy began playing guitar at twelve years of age. A year later at age 13, he was performing in a rock 'n' roll band that wore gold lame jackets and played Little Richard and Chuck Berry tunes. He discovered the great blues players early on, especially when his older brother brought home an album by Robert Johnson. Thus began his love of the blues, slide guitar in particular, which had an immediate effect on Roy, who was indeed named after the King of the Cowboys. Through the years he developed a distinctive style of playing slide guitar that not only emerged, but one that is instantly recognizable.

“That's not a slide on Roy Rogers' pinky, it's a time machine. With it, Rogers transports you to the Mississippi Delta's past and future…" - Guitar Player
