I'm proud to be a part of the MUSE Mentorship Program. Six month's of intensive learning. I've got a wonderful mentee, Aaron Romero. He's already quite an acomplished bass player, so things will only get better for him.
Things are starting to slowly pick up, and it's been nice to play a bit, and get the juices flowing. I didn't get a chance to tour this summer, so I really appreciate the music that I was able to play. Some highlights: Billy Hector down the Shore and at The Bitter End. A night of rock and roll covers with, With Teeth, at the Red Lion in NYC. The Demolition String Band at Skinny Dennis.
I'll be playing with Latin rocker Eljuri at Musikfest in Bethlehem PA.
Broadway's Rock Of Ages Band will be rocking at the Iowa State Fair on August 21st.
A press event for the musical, "The Wanderer" at Tavern On The Green.
And starting the day after Labor Day, we begin cast rehearsal for the return of the Tina Turner Musical on Broadway. Opening night is October 8th. This has been a long time coming. It'll be good to be back onstage after nearly 18 months.
Before we open, we'll be doing The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and the 74th Annual Tony Awards.
I've got a couple of slots open for students if you're interested. Just e-mail me at: WJRoye@aol.com (that info is on the Contacts page) or give me a call if you have my number.
