Bobby Lee Rodgers Trio Brings Post-Bop Jazz, Muscle Shoals Soul, Epic Rock to Green ParrotPosted On:
The Bobby Lee Rodgers Trio returns to The Green Parrot stage
with shows at 5:30 and 10 P.M. on Friday and Saturday, December 17th and 18th.
Bobby Lee Rodgers taps into the primal mojo of ’50s pioneers embellished with the captivating twists & turns of post-bop jazz, Muscle Shoals soul, fleet fingered acoustic picking, and huge scale epic rock.
A stellar songwriter, vocalist and guitarist, Bobby Lee Rodgers was for years the mainstay of The Codetalkers, a jazz, rock and roll band whose music has been described as a mix of jazz, rock, blues, bluegrass and funk with improvised jams being the main theme in their live performances. Some of their unique sound comes from their use of a rotating Leslie cabinet used for Rodgers’ guitar.
Rodgers high level of playing has attracted luminaries like guitarist Jimmy Herring (Phil Lesh, The Dead) and Hubert Sumlin (Howlin’ Wolf), who have toured with him. Other guests include Allman Brothers Derek Trucks & Warren Haynes, Phish’s Mike Gordon, Susan Tedeschi, jazz pianist Art Lande, Joe Craven (Psychograss/David Grisman Quintet) and violin giant Vassar Clements.
His mountain of positive press includes a recent interview on NPR’s “Morning Edition.
