Headliner:  RiZe UP! We Need You NOW Roy Zimmerman Concert

Roy Zimmerman returns to Humboldt County on Thursday, Nov. 8, at 7:00pm, just in time for a concert party after Election Day.  He has new songs, and some of our 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 in to Roy Zimmerman in person.  Suggested donation $20, or sliding scale, no one turned away.

Roy’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 Roy, “because in calling out the world’s absurdities and laughing in their face, I’m affirming the real possibility for change.”

Over twenty years on stages, screens and airwaves across America, Roy 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 seven 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.

You’re going to want to come out to celebrate or to gnash your teeth, and to be inspired for the next steps we need to take for our democracy. Meanwhile, Roy will give us a treat with new songs like:

Filled with laughs, of course, RiZe Up is also full of heart and inspiration with an undeniable underpinning of love and community.  To laugh is to resist! To hope is to resist! Join in a great evening.
