DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. - Singer and satirist Roy Zimmerman brings his political humor to Dobbs Ferry when Concerned Families of Westchester hosts, "Roy Zimmerman: Wake Up Call", at the Mead House on July 29 at 7 p.m.
Zimmerman, a featured blogger for the Huffington Post, has used his satire to support peace and social justice movements, producing 13 albums over 20 years. His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime television and his YouTube videos have amassed over seven million views.
“I get accused of preaching to the choir,” Zimmerman said, “but that’s not how I think of it. I think of it as entertaining the troops.”
Zimmerman’s rhyme-intensive original songs are meant to be calls to action on political and social issues. “Wake Up Call” is a 90-minute performance of Zimmerman's songs, including “Abstain With Me” and “I Want a Marriage Like They Had In the Bible,” “Hope, Struggle and Change” and “I Approve This Message”.
Zimmerman's songs take aim at politics and include a lament about how hard it is “To Be a Liberal,” and a rollicking indictment of the “Socialist” policies of George W. Bush and Richard Nixon.
Admission for the Zimmerman show is $15. Tickets will be available at the door.
Mead House is located at 12 Elm Street in Dobbs Herry.
