ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here’s the deal, I been playing music for 40 years, I learned it in truck stops, roadhouses and honky tonks all over the world. ... I love the classics, I’ve played with the best ... Freddy Fender, Jack Greene, Little Jimmie Dickens, Ace Cannon, Loretta Lynn, Junior Brown but as much as I love the music from “back in the day” I realize that retro is a dead end and I’m on a mission, I play roots rock and roll, rhythm & blues and country then take it to the next level forward not back ...I mix it all up with brazilian samba, bossa nova, folk music and ethnic rhythms... I hope I am making unique, interesting music without trying to reinvent the wheel ... I want to make music that matters, make real music from my heart and soul or forget it ... but like Charlie Parker who was a country fan said “its all about the stories”. My name is Uncle Roy and its been a long road and I got lots of tall tales ...

Heres what The Loafer, Auburn Alabama says ...
”The Uncle Roy Show with The Twang Thang is a band that comes in several configurations, its basic grouping consists of the trio of “Uncle Roy” Schultz, Dave Swanger and Derek DeLamar ... when Uncle Roy’s son Jonas is home from attending Berklee College of music in Boston the band adds saxophone and piano to the basic trio of drums, lead and bass guitar. The Uncle Roy experience is a swiss army knife of a band, it seems each configuration is a different entity playing different material. When Uncle Roy plays alone he appears as a troubadour much in the Bob Dylan mold, complete with harmonica holder. The music Roy plays can be loosely described as Americana.
Roy grew up traveling across the USA with his dad who was a truck driver. In the truck stops Roy was exposed to the country music on the jukeboxes ... these stops gave Roy his first musical influences. Along with Hard Country and Western Swing, Roy was influenced by Tex Mex ... an influence that shows up strongly on his soon to be released CD. Roy has played in bands all over the map. His travels include gigs in California, Texas, Hawaii, Canada, Japan, Korea, and Brazil. His singing is delivered with a fiendish delight that can be wordly and jaded. An example of this trend is his song “Is the screwin’ that you’re getting’ worth the screwin’ that you’re getting’”. On the other hand his songs can be achingly tender and loving. Some of his ballads written for his wife are very moving valentines that betray a softer side to Roy.
When Roy is joined by Dave Swanger on lead guitar and Derek DeLamar on bass The Uncle Roy Show morphs into The Twang Thang. This band plays a wide variety of material including R&B, Western Swing, Rock and Folk.
... when The Twang Thang is joined by Jonas Schultz the band changes once again. While continuing to deliver most of the songs from The Uncle Roy Show the band takes a serious trip south to include Brazilian jazz and bossa nova. Jonas is simply a wonder! While still in his teens this young fellow delivers jazz solos from classic bossa nova that are flawless. In this configuration one can enjoy the whole range of the Uncle Roy playbook. When you see their name on an upcoming music schedule don’t miss the opportunity to go out and see a local treasure”

UNCLE ROY & JONAS SCHULTZ

Hard Country, Funky Rhythm & Blues, Roots Rock & Classic Jazz from the coolest father & son act! With Uncle Roy on guitar and harmonica, Jonas on tenor saxophone they have been performing together as a duo for over 10 years.
March 2004 they toured southern Brazil with harmonica sensation Fabiano Rodriguez and his Convidados. Performing through out Southern Brazil doing 20 shows in 21 days. Their love of Brazilian culture and its people has influenced their own music.
While attending The Alabama School of Fine Arts in Birmingham Jonas spent his high school years leading his own Jazz band, has played in Alaska and Japan as well as Brazil. He has earned a scholarship from the prestigious Berklee College of Music where he is now attending.

THE TWANG THANG

Formed in the fall of 2004 after a chance meeting at a songwriters showcase, Dave Swanger and Uncle Roy Schultz teamed up to perform hard country and hillbilly boogie as The Twang Thang. Two grizzled veterans of the music business, they know how to have fun and entertain. With a whole new generation of country fans the time was right to play “the country classics” and let the people know where it all comes from. Not a retro act but a fresh approach to “drinkin’, cheatin’, killin’, truck drivin’, love songs” ... with one foot in the honky tonk and the other in a semi truck they put the pedal to the metal with a roots rock twangfest!
Dave is a 30 year veteran of the Alabama music scene ... a singer/songwriter and bandleader, most recently as the guitar slinger of Dave and the Swangers ... and all around cool guy.
They then hooked up with Derek Delamar on Bass Guitar as the need for more horsepower became apparent. Derek a well rounded musician who has played blues with Bald Head Fred, reggae with One Drop and eclectic folk music with Burns and the Sideburns. All legendary acts performing throughout the south.
Like the song says “ ...I wanna do the Twang Thang, down that hillbilly hiway on the underbelly side of the honky tonk edge of town, where the neon lites up your brain and you can all go a little insane, where you and your baby can jump and shout and knock yourselves out to the Twang Thang.”
