Rose City Kings is proud to announce a very special guest for our Album Launch Party: Hershel Yatovitz, lead guitarist for pop rock icon Chris Isaak and Silvertone. Hershel has been a long time friend of Rose City Kings (and its iteration Kolvane) performing with the band at Portland’s Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival and other special events. “If you’ve seen any of our performances with Hershel, you know that the pyrotechnics will begin and it’s a show not to be missed! It’s like starting the 4th of July fireworks early”, says band leader Dan Berkery. Since joining Isaak in 1995, Hershel has recorded 10 albums with Isaak, toured the globe, appeared on The Chris Isaak Show, The Chris Isaak Hour and countless other TV shows. Hershel has played with such luminaries as Booker T. (Booker T & The MGs), Glen Campbell, Shawn Colvin, Dizzy Gillespie, Bonnie Raitt, Joe Walsh (The Eagles) and the list goes on.
