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 “calling 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.”

The greatest helps are to come to his shows, play his music, buy his merchandise, visit his social media pages, tweet/re-tweet, like and share his links, and consider becoming a patron on his Patreon page. Roy also has an affiliate relationship with Amazon and has listed some of the favorite products he uses in his studio and live shows. Buying from Amazon through his affiliate link costs you nothing extra, but Roy will receive a small commission if you do. It's just another way of making a living in the creative arts.
