Good Rockin' House Party (2017)
Music-Style: Blues - Boogie - R&B
In the last twenty years, Roger C. Wade (harp / vocals) has established himself as an outstanding harmonica player in the guild of German Bluestraditionalists. His powerful as well as sensitive style, haunting blues feeling paired with a healthy level of virtuosity inspire the Blu-ray specialist and the party audience alike. Spontaneity, humor and an energetic "stage presence" - this is the way the audience has appreciated Roger C. Wade in Germany and Europe for over 20 years.
Born in 1968 in Norwich, England, Roger not only discovered British blues in the mid-'80s, but mainly his love of classical blues. After his first gigs as a duo on the streets of England, he already moved to Germany, where he played in his first German blues band in the early 90s, first as sideman then as frontman and singer. Shortly thereafter, Roger founded his first band, Excuse My Blues, along with his wife Marion on the piano. The course was set and the direction clear - it was about Blues, Boogie and RnB. In 1994, Roger spent several months in the US, where he worked with many well-known blues artists between New York and San Francisco.
After this exciting and characteristic time, Roger returned to Germany and founded the band Little Roger & The Houserockers with his wife Marion on the piano and Tilmann Michalke on guitar. Over the last 20 years, numerous well-known musicians have been guest performers of the band, ia. Alex Schulz, Chris Rannenberg, Marc T uvm. In 2010, the band completed a two-week tour with RJ Mischo in Europe.
The band has recorded four CDs, the last "Jumping at Jack's Joint" with Thomas Feldmann, Sax Gordon and with special guest Marc T, who has also produced two CDs of the band. In addition to the Houserockers Roger regularly with other bands on the stage, in particular Jan Mohr and the Backscratchers and the duo "Roger Mohr."
Little Roger & The Houserockers are totally dedicated to their love of blues, especially the blues and boogie of the 40s and 50s. The band differentiates itself from other retro bands through its dynamic live show that leaves the audience in clubs or at festivals with tired legs, sore hands and a smile on their face - a rousing show that you should not miss live.
