An Evening With Roy Rivers

As a singer/songwriter, Roy has written over 200 songs to date! He's charted a #2 and #4 hit on Country Radio in Europe with his original songs "What Our Love Is Not About" and "Oh Railroad." And because of his previous work with John Denver tribute shows, he always includes a couple covers of John's songs in his set list.

Roy's favorite manner of writing is to tell a story in his songs. Part of his appeal to audiences is his ability to connect along common experiences, and to weave in light-hearted humor as he shares a few of the stories he's encountered along the way.

An Evening With Roy Rivers is a journey into the craft and wonder of an original songwriter. Performing wherever original music is heard, this show is best suited as a solo-acoustic performance for small and medium venues (up to 650 seats). He's played listening rooms, social and service club halls, performing arts centers and outdoor amphitheaters… just to name a few. If your venue is larger, all the better, but please consider asking for Roy to bring his band!

To see if your venue is a good fit, just be sure to use the CONTACT SECTION and let us know what you've got in mind. You'll get a prompt response from Roy himself, or a member of his team… usually within 24 - 48 hours. Scheduling is easy, so reach out soon to make sure your patrons are able to see this high quality show.

His Shows Are Very Personal

Anyone who has ever attended a Roy Rivers show knows about the connection he has with his audiences. Listening to Roy in any setting feels very personal.

He’s famous for “pulling an audible”… meaning breaking away from the outlined show format and singing a song (or two, or three) he feels someone in the audience needs.

“Sometimes, you just have to do what your gut tells you and step away from the defined path, no matter what the situation. There are many times I’ve had a strong sense in the middle of a show that I needed to sing a specific song that was not on the set list. I always listen to those feelings. Sometimes, in smaller crowds, I can immediately tell who it was for as someone will suddenly get very emotional. Other times it’s afterwards that a fan comes up and tells me with great feeling what that specific song meant to him or her. I’m so grateful to be able to do that.”
