ROY ROBERTS - When he turned 18 Roy was backing up major artists who came through his town in North Carolina. One of those artists, Solomon Burke, took young Roy under his wing after letting him sit in as a bass player during a local gig. He was soon handling the guitar chores behind the future soul legend on tour. Roberts subsequently picked up touring gigs with such luminaries as Eddie Floyd, “Little” Stevie Wonder, Dee Clark, and Otis Redding, while fronting his own band, The Roy Roberts Experience.
Roy Roberts is well known on the European Festival scene and has performed throughout the US in many major festivals and clubs.
