Renowned for their exciting live shows, Roi and the Secret People (RSP) features the beautiful and mesmerizing voice of Mike Roi and the musical talents of Randy Melick on guitar, Craig Martyn on drums, Dan DeChellis on piano, and Glen Radomski on bass. Roi, who hails from southern Florida, set out to assemble a group of talented, experienced, and like-minded musicians to create the version of rock music he was raised with. Armed with all original music, RSP has played such renowned clubs as Rockwood Music Hall and Arlene’s Grocery in New York City and The Tin Angel and The Legendary Dobbs in Philly. Their first album, Dog St., includes a variety of tunes from the stunning, haunting song, “Firefly,” to the balls-to-the- wall sound of the title track “Dog St.” Their newly released 2nd album, Phoenix, blends Roi’s pop sensibilities with an alternative rock twist mired in sounds from the likes of Nick Lowe to Tom Petty. Roi has been known to state that all he usually needs is a good bottle of bourbon, a case of beer, a good cigar, and a guitar to create the kind of true-blue, sexy, and salt-of-the earth music that has captivated audiences in the tri-state area. Eclectic, diverse, and thoroughly original, RSP is a band that combines a classic rock vibe with a lyrical, wholly unique sound. [+]
