At age 72, Roland carries on his passion for music & knowledge. I have met him a few times through work on the archive for his previous works in bands, most notably the Jubilaires. Without getting too much into how nice this guy is in person, let’s just say his sharing of musical knowledge & human kindness was extremely impressive, often only found in small towns like ours.
