Backstage Pass from Terceira, Azores ~ June 28, 2014
Thousands of people in Terceira filled the cobblestoned streets on their way to the venue to see Roger's show tonight. For over 30 years, the Sanjoaninas Festival has been bringing international talent to the Azores. Roger and his band were the grand finale for the last night of this year's festival.
There were technical issues with several power outages at the beginning of the show. All was fine at sound check earlier in the day, but by the end of the first song of the show, Roger's keyboard went out and the mics started going silent one by one.
Hats off to the fantastic audience of over 10,000 who did not budge an inch! They waited patiently for the show to go on. After a reset by the technical crew, Roger and his band regained the stage and rocked out along with the people who came to the party. A wonderful night was had by all!

Such an event is not pleasant for any artist but Roger has other own source of energy which electrifies his audience ...
I believe that if he stayed on the stage without any technique, alone only with his guitar, nobody would not left disappointed. Everyone would shined.
Because Roger gives something that is not able to give even the most perfect technique.
Seriously - try to produce love...
The love and passion within the music the Minstrel man he plays,
Each song a journey, a story, a tale to drift and dream away ~
Sharing life lessons, losses and love's in every note he sings,
A humble man he still remains throughout the years he brings ~
His contagious smile that warms our heart and the soothing of our soul,
"True Love" is felt to share with others hence the Minstrels' selfless goal ~
Thank you Roger for the years of beautiful music! Play on Please, Play on ~
