Roy Vogt

He is a preeminent educator, exemplary session player, Kiesel Signature Bass artist, solo recording artist, and virtuoso sideman to Richard Betts, Tom Scott, Glenn Campbell, Chet Atkins, Charlie Daniels, Jerry Reed, and Larry Coryell to cite a very few. With great insight, humor, humility, and depth of knowledge – Roy Vogt was among my favorite teachers for any subject at the University of Miami and other learning “institutions.”

During one instructional session, to make a point about how one of my colleagues should conduct himself as a pro on and off the bandstand, I recall a spirited Roy Vogt sinking his teeth into a tuck-and-roll Naugahyde Kustom bass power-amp to further accentuate his disposition. The lessons that last a lifetime!
