TheYard Tampa is honored to announce that we will be hosting a special afternoon of music with the legendary Roger Bartlett & John Frinzi on Sunday, September 9th from 2-5pm. Come enjoy this special performance and invite your friends for this special treat at The Yard!
ROGER BARTLETT: In the early days it was just Jimmy Buffett and Roger Bartlett. Two acoustic guitars, and vocals. After a year on the road as a duo, and with the success of a hit song, Come Monday, it was clear a band was needed for the bigger venues they were playing, so Jimmy added Greg "Fingers" Taylor on harmonica and keyboard, Harry Dailey on bass and Phillip Fajardo on drums.
Roger is also infamous as the singer and writer of the song Fool for a Blonde from the classic horror movie "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," and for the many incarnations of his own bands, and as lead guitarist for many artists from New York to Las Vegas.
Roger leads his band delivering contemporary blues-based music that has elements of rock and funk with a little jazzy thing thrown in. With his distinctive voice, lead guitar work and twisted sense of humor, his music is unique.
As a composer, Roger is working on a musical titled, Things've Gotta Change, inspired by his father's career as a radio personality. Set in 1953, in Shreveport, LA, it chronicals a time of great change in the music business, societal norms and rapid technological advances. Roger is also working with Phyllis MacBryde on a jazz-based musical called Zinzi.
Roger has shared the stage with many artists. Some of the most notable are: The Eagles, James Taylor, Lightnin' Hopkins, Jackie Wilson, Hoyt Axton, Heart, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Doobie Brothers, Jerry Jeff Walker, Doc Watson, Steve Goodman, Charlie Daniels Band, Count Basie, Three Dog Night, Tom Rush, Pablo Cruise, John Hartford, Ramblin' Jack Elliot, the Drifters, Little Feat, and many, many more.
Roger lives and works out of New York City, playing with his band, as a sideman and as a composer and writer for albums, Theater, TV and film.
JOHN FRINZI: A gifted singer and songwriter, skillful on both guitar and piano, John Frinzi has built an audience through craft and originality.
An early demo caught the ear of legendary steel guitarist and long time Coral Reefer Band member Doyle Grisham, and their working relationship led to John's first CD, “Into The Dawn.”
His second album, “Shoreline,” showcases Frinzi's versatility as a songwriter and vocalist with many of the songs co-written by Tom Corcoran, co-writer of the Jimmy Buffett classics,
“Fins,” and “Cuban Crime of Passion.” Both CDs remain in
regular rotation on Sirius/XM’s Radio Margaritaville.
Most recently, John teamed up with multi-platinum Songwriter and Producer Aaron Scherz on their singles "Summer Sun" and “Lyin’ or Lucky” which,
in addition to being fan favorites on Sirius/XM, are included on their new album “Blue Sky View”.
A seasoned live performer, Frinzi has toured nationally playing over 250 dates a year and has been featured at major festivals including the Keith Sykes Songwriters Celebration, Key West Songwriters Festival, Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival
and has shared the stage with acclaimed artists including Jesse Winchester,
Mac McAnally, The Coral Reefer Band, Todd Snider and Maria Muldaur.
