"I've been doing music business with Roger since the mid-80's. Most recently, he brought his blues band, The Downtown LIVEWIRES Band, to my Club 152 on Beale Street in Memphis. They packed one of the largest crowds we had this year (2012) on Saturday night, September 22. Additionally, their crowd buys drinks and food, which helps any "for profit" entertainment business, like ours. We will work with The Downtown LIVEWIRES Band again, and look forward to a great party atmosphere just like the last time!" ~ Wilbur Hensley, owner of multiple night clubs in Memphis, TN

"I had the greatest pleasure in being able to host The Downtown Livewires at my studio for what turned out to be a fantastic live recording experience for me. It was a classic full group set up involving many veterans of the Blues. From voice to the rhythm section and everything in between....these guys communicated musically straight out of the box. I'm very thankful for them letting me participate."
