Coral Reefer Band

Roger Guth

While growing up on a farm outside of St. Louis, Roger Guth knew that playing music would be an integral part of his life. Roger remembers helping out his father’s little wedding band by playing drums in local VFW halls as a ten year old, but also remembers the band having to bring along a drum machine just in case he fell asleep. By the time Roger entered his teens, he had already built a strong foundation as both a drummer and pianist. This would prove to be a stepping-stone that would help him in reaching his ultimate goal of being the outstanding musician/songwrter that he is today.

Some of Roger’s early influences in music came by listening to great jazz performers such as Elvin Jones and Buddy Rich, and then later by listening to some of the black jazz musicians of the time. Roger was inspired by many people to not only write music, but use his unique vocal ability as well.

Roger has performed with or has written songs for Mose Allison, Herb Ellis, James Moody, Peter Mayer, Bobby Lyle, Vanessa Williams, and Dave Weckl.

When he is not on the road with Jimmy Buffett he also tours as part of The Peter Mayer Group. Roger has released a couple of solo albums: “Scotch” (2000) and “Cowboy Ballet” (2001).
