April is Roosevelt Collier Birthday Month!
Now understand, Roosevelt Collier isn’t claiming the entire month of April as his, but for certain two consecutive Saturdays will be awesome birthday celebrations for the sacred steel master!
The Roosevelt Collier Birthday Jam is going down at 1904 Music Hall in Jacksonville on Saturday, April 17, with special guests Them Vagabonds, The Hulagans, and Scott T & The Fax Sheen. Tommy Shugart will be joining Collier as well. Tickets are available now on the 1904 Music Hall website.
The following Saturday, April 24, will be Collier’s birthday show at The New Standard in Winter Park, and he has assembled an astounding band for the show. Semi-regular bandmate Matt Lapham will join Collier on bass. On keyboards is the jaw-dropping Shaun Martin (Shaun Martin’s Three-O, Snarky Puppy), and let’s just say you’ve been forewarned about a Tasmanian devil of a drummer in Blaque Dynamite, who plays regularly with Martin. You’ll see.
