    Hello Beautiful Everyone! I’ve had a glorious week! Let’s get to the news .  .  . Roque’s 2nd Annual Piano Salon on August 19, 2018 Last Sunday, I hosted my 2nd Annual Piano Salon at my home in the woods of Liberty, TN. Nashville guitarist Andrew Weitze played electric guitar as I played my songs, and he was on fire!!!

    Roque’s Weekly Review on 7/25/2018

    Accountability is a good thing.  Sharing is a good thing, and as such, I have decided to post weekly updates on my website roqueinbloom.com regarding my musical and visual art projects that are on the way.  I have reached a new time in my life in which I want to share more about my creative work and ongoing progress I am making on several fronts.  This is the inaugural RWR post, and it will be an ongoing review of the work I have accomplished on a weekly basis. I also feel that if I tell you what I am working on and when it will be ready, then I am…
