Singer, Political Satirist Returns to Tampa Bay
Roy Zimmerman’s music blends humor and social commentary.
ST. PETERSBURG – Political satirist singer/songwriter Roy Zimmerman returns to the Tampa Bay area after many years with his blend of humor and social commentary.
Zimmerman’s music has been described as a funny and forceful expression of resistance in the age of Donald Trump.
“In the current national nightmare, we need to laugh. And we need to hope. To laugh is to fight back. To hope is to fight back,” Zimmerman said.
In a career spanning more than 30 years, Zimmerman’s songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime, and his videos have garnered tens of millions of views on social media. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. He’s shared stages with Bill Maher, Ellen DeGeneres, Holly Near, Robin Williams, Arlo Guthrie, John Oliver, Kate Clinton and George Carlin, and tours the country constantly with his wife and co-writer Melanie Harby.
He recently released his 10th album as a solo artist, RiZe Up. RiZe Up is 90 minutes of Zimmermans original songs – a funny and forceful affirmation of peace and social justice.
Zimmerman’s concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of St. Petersburg, 100 Mirror Lake Drive N, St. Petersburg. Tickets are $20 advance and $25 at the door. For tickets, go to brownpapertickets.com.
