ROBERT WALTER, EDDIE ROBERTS AND ADAM DEITCH POWER TRIO TO HIT THE ROAD

Robert Walter, Eddie Roberts and Adam Deitch will be introducing their new power funk trio WRD at a series high profile shows in the month of August. Described by Eddie Roberts as “60's SoulJazz, Rare Funk Grooves & Driving Latin Beats, with a trans continental twist and a modern mind set," the tour starts this week with two shows in Colorado.

“Robert Walter and I met in 1996 in a small club in Leeds, UK. We had a passion for the very same music and over the years we've spoken about one day forming a trio together. My move to the US at the end of 2010 made this a reality. After discussing who the ideal 3rd member would be, we agreed that Adam Deitch was the man and he was approached. Luckily for all, he was as excited by the idea as we were, and this was the birth of WRD. What happens when you put 3 bulls in a field? Come and find out!"—Eddie Roberts
