He has new songs, and some favorites to make us laugh and cry.  Everyone is invited to the Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 24 Fellowship Way, Bayside (off Jacoby Creek Road) to listen to Roy Zimmerman in person.  Suggested donation is $20, or sliding scale. No one will be turned away. 

Zimmerman’s show is called “RiZe UP,” bringing laughter and encouragement to progressive-minded people who need a lot of both in the Age of Trump. 

“Sometimes I think satire is the most hopeful form of expression,” says Zimmerman “because in calling out the world’s absurdities and laughing in their face, I’m affirming the real possibility for change.”

Over 20 years on stages, screens and airwaves across America, Zimmerman has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for peace and justice. His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. His YouTube videos have garnered over 7 million views, and he’s a featured blogger for the Huffington Post.

“RiZe Up” is a big Americana romp, bursting with guitar, mandolin, unapologetic banjo, dobro and steel. Horns too; the amazing New Orleans jazz sounds of the Soggy Po Boys.
