“It’s a big, big world full of all kinds of people,’ sings Roy Zimmerman, “but there’s one thing we can all agree on…” Then he strums. And he strums. He casts his eyes to the ceiling. At last he sings, “…and when I find out what it is, I’ll let you know.”
Zimmerman is a satirical songwriter in the Tom Lehrer/Phil Ochs tradition. He tours almost constantly, taking his funny songs about fracking, creationism, marijuana laws, government shutdown, same-sex marriage, guns, taxes and abstinence across the country, often playing in some of the least Progressive places in America for the most Progressive people there – the “Blue Dots” he calls them.
The world is full of funny songs, but Zimmerman’s hilarious, rhyme-intensive originals are also incisive calls to action, smart, savvy and undeniable. The “Blue Dot Tour” is ninety minutes of these songs – funny songs like “The Faucet’s on Fire!”, heartfelt songs like “Hope, Struggle and Change” and “I Approve This Message.”
