40 years

Roy attended Sunny Hills High School in the late 60s and since then he has never been too far away from stage. Roy is a musician himself but made a living first as a bouncer at The Golden Bear Huntington Beach, and later doing sound and lighting from small local clubs to mega concerts across the county.

Roy is a master sound engineer, production and lighting expert and has worked the So Cal concert and club circuit for four decades and he has seen it all. His credits look like a whos who record collection as seen at . Roy was also there the night The Golden Bear closed it’s doors for the last time doing monitors for Robin Trower. Roy was also kind enough to volunteer his time as stage manager when in July 2012 a bunch of amateurs held a concert for Kelly Thomas headlining The Adolescents. Roy fell in love with the art these gigs produced and he as been collecting original concert and movie hand bills and posters all the while. In 2005 Roy had a hip replacement that hasn’t gone well, dislocating 4 times since then it has left him hospitalized for a week each time amassing huge bills. The only reason he offering these treasured items for sale is to take care of the bills it has amassed. So come down and enjoy some rock, punk and movie history.

On display and for sale will be cult classic film posters, much of the promo material from San Francisco Psychedelic rock scene, as well as Roys own personal rock and punk material from the gigs he played and worked. Everything on display will be an original printing and everything will be for sale well below the collectable retail price.

The Egan Gallery will be transformed and Sex Drugs and Rock “n” Roll are on the menu. So come sober or come loaded, either way you will enjoy your trip.
