Hailing from New Orleans, his Latininfused drum style has deeply evolved throughout his travels after his departure from the Delta. Roland exhibits an extraordinary range of styles each and every time he takes the stage. From break-beats to grooving rhythms, bongo to high-hat, Lawes firmly glues the Syndicate together into a unified front of Blues, Funk, and Jazz - With a taste of the
