Jesse Roperís animated and expressive energy adds to his remarkable leads and his powerfully pleasing vocals, gaining The Roper Show fans from across Canada. Receiving high praise from critics and fellow artists alike, The Roper Show plays rock music with its foundations in roots, blues and country. The way Jesse leans into a solo and wrings everything from each note that it has to offer has been compared to Collin James & Stevie RayVaughan. Contending in several talent and music competitions, including the Memphis International Blues Challenge, Jesse was the winner the 2011 Niagara Talent Competition, among others. The Roper Show has a number of festival appearances under its belt, such as:Canadian Music Week, Tall Tree Music and Arts Festival and The Kingston Blues Festival. Opening for the likes of George Canyon, Ziggy Marley, The Pack AD and Wide Mouth Mason; The Roper Show has even shared the stage with long-time idols Dr. Hook. The Roper Show has recorded its debut album "Son Of John", at Baker Studio (Cowboy Junkies, Alex Cuba, Daniel Lapp), for release this summer. The 10 track LP features rock music with elements of blues, roots and funk with a country twist that is sure to appeal to appreciators of outstanding music. Touring info. to follow.
