Slide guitarist Roy Rogers has a penchant for intriguing collaborations.
His latest is with multi-instrumentalist Carlos Reyes, a native of Paraguay who now resides in the Bay Area.
Roy Rogers and the Delta Rhythm Kings and Carlos Reyes will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 27 in Harrah’s Lake Tahoe South Shore Room.
Rogers was a longtime musical partner with Norton Buffalo, the harpist who died in 2009. Rogers also made an album with Shana Morrison and was a producer with John Lee Hooker. Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek and Rogers front the Manzarek Rogers Band, which next fall plans to release its third album, “Twisted Tales.”
Reyes is best known for his work on violin and harp. He became popular in the San Francisco region with the band Merlin. He has played all over the world, including a recent tour in Cuba.
Bassist Steve Evans has been with the Delta Rhythm Kings for several years. Before drummer Kevin Hayes joined, he was in the Robert Cray Band.
The Manzarek Rogers Band performed in the South Shore Room in 2012 and at the Crystal Bay Casino in 2011. Its first album, “Ballads Before The Rain” was mellow, the second, “Translucent Blues,” up tempo.
