Roy is a drummer, singer, guitar player who hails originally from California. He moved here 20 years ago with his wife and children and now calls Vermont home. As his children grew he started to meet other musicians, eventually ending up with Rick and the Ramblers for five years. It was there he met Jim Pitman who was to later recommend him for the drumming slot in the nascent Rooster organization. In addition to the Roosters, Roy works with The Real Deal, an eight-piece funk band, where he sings and plays rhythm guitar, and Loose Association, a trio that plays a wide variety of music from the last 40 years.
