Join us for MICHAEL ROE's return to our house for the only local appearance during his solo return to the road this fall on an acoustic/electric tour featuring material from the digitally re-released 77s recordings, "Ping Pong Over The Abyss", "All Fall Down", and "Seventy Sevens", special requests and fan favorites. Mike says "It's been nearly 30 years since I began recording with the 77s and it's exciting to have our first three albums available for the fans again. I am anxious to look back and rediscover what all the excitement was about, and that includes digging into those early songs that made me friends forever with so many wonderful people."

MICHAEL ROE (The 77s, The Lost Dogs) is a master on any guitar put in his hands. Vocally and stylistically he spans the years from Blind Willy Johnson, to Chuck Berry, to Elvis Presley, to Johnny Cash, to Neil Young, to Art Garfunkel. Roe can cover any genre and any style without skipping a beat and is the all-things-to-all guitarist/vocalist for the rootsy, collaborative Lost Dogs. Regardless of the hat he is wearing, Michael Roe has, over the course of his 25+ years as a national recording artist, delivered well-crafted songs and lyrics to many audiences.

Roe is also a much-demanded producer and session player and has spent considerable time discovering, producing and playing on diverse projects. Some of his work has been recorded by both general market players and by a number of Christian music's most popular artists.

Michael Roe has carved out a body of work that is broad, deep, well regarded, and much acclaimed. In each of his recordings, Roe desires not only to set forth a well written song but also to show himself as a real human being, writing from his experience of life's difficulties and struggles as well as life's joys and promises. "Oftentimes my songs tell on me, they indict me, they provoke me, they convict me." Adds Roe, "We're only here for a short time, in this veil of tears...I hope my songs help people in general to realize what we have been given and how much is available to us."
