Different .. Very Different!
FERGUSON and ROGERS BAND
A 60 Minute set-up condensed into a minute...3000X real time (but just as exhausting)
A quick note on guest sit-ins: If we know the song we will likely let guests sing a song or two, or guitar/horn/harmonica player join us on stage. 3 Rules: F & R must know the song, YOU must know the song AND key, Know the lyrics. We are NOT Karaoke though a Karaoke singer is welcome on our stage BUT not if you sing to a cell phone in your other hand, reading lyrics.
Averaging 3000 visits a month...thank you all so very much... stop by the gig and request a song or 10, or 15.
but of course we take requests ... "the music you grew up with!"
FERGUSON & ROGERS BAND displays Keyboards, Guitar, Drums, Foot Bass, and Vocals without the use of “TRACKS” or computer. They accompany them selves.
While in Florida, SCOTT CASEY is our Sound Guy, with other attributes to the F&R Band and is making us sound magnificent from what we're told.
FERGUSON and ROGERS BAND is a totally self contained band with sound re-enforcement including a combination of speakers and powered bass sub cabinets insuring a FULL, balanced sound to cover the room or concert area. As opening act for many national acts (Charlie Pride, Tanya Tucker, ALABAMA, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Conway Twitty) Ferguson & Rogers mixer plugs into their system and suddenly we're playing to 5000 people. (size does matter)
With a fully loaded '8 X 10' enclosed cargo trailer following them to the gig, they come prepared to entertain up to a 800 seat room or arena.

Here's the Skinny on Ferguson & Rogers Band. With over 20 contracted/confirmed booking for the 2019-2020 season (not including most restaurant/night club dates) we'll be hitting the stages of SW Florida mid-November 2019. This Summer has certainly been a rollercoaster ride with ups and downs, curves and turns unexpected... but the ride has been a very good one. Paul had 2 surgeries that have been postponed and would not have been addressed had it been the working Summer Season in North Country New York as usual. Not expecting to perform this Summer he did not bring any musical equipment from Florida but when Ferguson & Taylor had an opportunity to reunite things changed. Now, entering the Fall season Ferguson & Rogers Band are performing in New York until they head to Florida in November. Paul and DJ will be in WNY, Buffalo Pizza and Ale House, October 25, 2019, 7:00 PM and Springville October 26th, 2019 at the VFW for a Halloween Party with the possibility of another show in the area that weekend. Please check our schedule/calendar on this site or look for postings on our Facebook Group Page: Ferguson & Rogers Band.
Thank you, Everybody, for giving us PURPOSE as entertainers/musicians for a whole career.
I might note that while performing in northern New York we do not have our enhanced "concert" size PA system, lighting or sound man Scott Casey. Still we perform LIVE, full band sound, all the drums, keyboards, guitar, Bass, and vocals..with a smaller PA system.

WE request permission to play “over-time” if our crowd is actively participating, YOUR servers and bartenders are “busy”,
and the neighbors don't complain.
Ferguson & Rogers Band is NOT an "Easy Listening", Background Music, "could you turn it down, we're trying to talk" type of act. (although some events begin this way, we will accommodate, of course)
Our audiences occasionally like to start dancing and singing right away. We do have a PLAY LIST as a reference to the hundreds of songs we play, but we don't use a SET LIST... we observe the room "energy" before deciding what songs to begin the show with.
However, we'll be in "performance mode" from song one. That said, we have outgrown the smaller venue, TIKI Bar, Piano Bar Lounges, and many Assisted Living facilities "Parlor events".
Outdoor venues: PLEASE make sure your auto sprinkler systems are on OFF until we're loaded up and out of sight.
