Roger “Hurricane” Wilson at Green Parrot
Delivering his own brand of blues and roots-rock Atlanta’s Roger “Hurricane” Wilson will appear at The Green Parrot Friday, February 10th beginning at 10 pm, with a special Friday Happy Hour 5 P.M. “sound check”.
A hint about Wilson’s show. Living Blues Magazine says, “Wilson takes no prisoners in his approach to blues/rock,” while the Atlanta Journal/Constitution promises, “his own style is raucous enough to keep bar crowds in a perpetual sweat.”
After a 14 year career of teaching hundreds of students to play guitar from 1973-1987 and playing professionally since 1972, Roger “Hurricane” Wilson can’t find enough days in the week to keep up with the demand of trying to be everywhere. The road beckons, and it currently has him doing between 250 and 300 gigs a year, with no relief in sight.
Wilson has jammed with Roy Buchanan, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Albert Collins, 38 Special, Charlie Musselwhite and James & Lucky Peterson, and has done shows with B.B. King, John Mayall, Roomful of Blues, Delbert McClinton, Savoy Brown, Spirit, Dickey Betts, Marshall Tucker, and Edgar Winter, just to name a few.
Eric King, owner of internationally known Atlanta blues club Blind Willies, and president of True Blue Productions, predicts that Roger “Hurricane” Wilson is the next Atlanta blues artist to break nationally.
