The Palms is hosting a New Year’s Eve dance party — complete with a champagne toast at midnight, party favors and all the trimmings — featuring master bluesman Roy Rogers and his band The Delta Rhythm Kings. Tickets for the special New Year’s Eve show, which will start at 9:30 p.m. and last well into 2013, are $45.

The Palms Playhouse is at 13 Main St. in downtown Winters.

Roy Rogers — yes, his folks named him after the singing cowboy — cut his teeth as a guitarist in John Lee Hooker’s legendary band 30 years ago, and rapidly caught the attention of the blues world for being a player with tremendous power, technical prowess and ability to remain true to the roots of Delta blues without being a mere carbon copy of those who came before him.

Unquestionably one of the top blues slide guitarists in the world, Rogers is renowned for both his electrifying renditions of classic Mississippi blues — especially Robert Johnson songs such as “32-20 Blues” and “Terraplane Blues” — and crafting original songs that are fresh yet fit perfectly with these classic tunes.

A dynamic and versatile player with few peers, Rogers’ frequent use of a custom-built double-neck guitar exemplifies how his talent, exuberance and sheer love for the blues can’t be contained.

While Rogers made his original mark as a guitarist, he quickly grew into a mutli-faceted musical force to be reckoned with and the go-to guy for guitar, songwriting, vocals and producing. In addition to leading his own band, this recipient of eight Grammy nominations has had significant collaborations with John Lee Hooker; Bonnie Raitt; Carlos Santana; Steve Miller; Ramblin’ Jack Elliott; Allen Toussaint; the late, great harmonica virtuoso Norton Buffalo; and an ongoing collaboration with The Doors’ co-founder and keyboardist Ray Manzarek as the Manzarek-Rogers Band, including last year’s chart-topping release “Translucent Blues.”

Rogers’ burning passion for and effervescent joyful love of music translates into powerful live performances, with the audience catching Rogers’ energy and enthusiasm.

Tickets for Roy Rogers and The Delta Rhythm Kings’ New Year’s Eve show at The Palms Playhouse are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if not sold out.
