Ric speaks with one of Rock & Roll’s Top Bass Players, Regina Zernay Roberts
She toured the world with the New Orleans institution Cowboy Mouth, then garnered worldwide attention alongside Cee Lo Green. Now Regina is bringing Rock & Roll back with Detroit Diesel Power!
As part of Cee Lo Green’s band, bassist Regina Zernay Roberts has performed on Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show, Late Show with David Letterman, Good Morning America, Jimmy Kimmel, and many more — and she’s opened up for music legends such as Prince and The Foo Fighters. Before that, Regina was an integral part of the legendary New Orleans band Cowboy Mouth, having toured the globe – including Iraq and Kuwait – and appearing on TV shows such as Regis & Kelly and Ellen.
Now, Regina returns to her hard rock roots with the new band Detroit Diesel Power, which she describes as aggressive rock & roll punk with a social conscience. According to Regina, there’s been a vacuum in the rock and roll world lately and Detroit Diesel Power – which is beginning to generate radio airplay across the country – wants to fill that void.
