Cafe R&B, then and now…a long time collaboration

Cafe R&B, an amazing band and long time friends. With a passion for gritty, hard-hitting early blues and R&B, their live performances are both incendiary and legendary. These photos below are from an afternoon in the late 90’s on location at Fais Do-Do in Los Angeles, a favorite location back in those days.  The photo below was featured on their CD Black & White.

“Imagine Etta James riding a Harley out of an active volcano, and you’ll have some vague inkling as to the vocal power emanating from ‘Roach’, the front woman of L.A. blues and groove unit Cafe R&B.” ~ HITS magazine

Throngs of women flock to their shows to dance and revel in Roach’s amazing performances. Her freedom of expression has an amazing liberating effect on her fans which I have witnessed time and again.

Their producer and Roach’s husband, Byl Carruthers, does amazing guitar work and writes the band’s original material….and sometimes helps out with wardrobe 🙂

Celebrating 25 years of marriage this week, Roach and Byl have an amazing relationship making and playing music together and are parents of a wonderful son Jazz. Happy Anniversary you guys!!! Love you!!
