"Fairfax Music Festival"

"Sam thoroughly enthralled and entertained not only the crowd but the other performers on both (our) stages. Truly unique, creative, and fun!" - Steve Wyrostok, Music Director

"Grammy award-winning Producer"

"Give this man a mic! Get him on a mic!" - Narada Michael Walden

"The Flying Pickets"

"To find a new way of singing and then to make it so musical -- I didn't think it could be done!" - Andrea Figallo, bass singer & vocal percussionist


"There are only a few performers talented and brazen enough to follow in Bobby McFerrin's footsteps, sustaining a song with just their own voice. Sam Rogers combines some modern vocal percussion with singing and inventive noise-making on a delightful cross-section of jazz and pop tunes." - Don Gooding, President

"The Swingle Singers"

"It is simply stunning what Sam can accomplish!" - Ward Swingle, Arranger/Singer/Founder

"Sam has always had great musical taste for a wide range of music. I am happy to see that he's used all of those influences and developed a style of his own." - Roy Rogers, slide guitar virtuoso

"Primarily A Cappella Records /"

"Sam Rogers stands up in front of a microphone provides vocals, percussion, background vocals, fake horns and scat singing for a surprising demonstration of the capabilities and possibilities of the human voice...Sam and his great set of lungs are pushing the a cappella envelope!" - John Neal, President

"SF 49er turned Film Producer"

"Man! I don't believe it! His human beatbox is the best!" - Jamie Williams

He is called "The One Mouth Band" for good reason. Sam makes all the sounds of a band -- bass, guitar, synthesizers, horns, mouth-defying drums/percussion, and more -- with the precision of a seasoned musician. Add a sprinkling of live-looping (recording and layering parts live on stage), and you've got 100% organic human music and fresh, accessible entertainment. A musically and visually entertaining performer, Sam makes each show interactive and memorable for the whole audience. Just one of his performances can seamlessly range from jazz to rock to funk to blues to reggae, each with instrumental imitations and musical improvisations that have astounded audiences in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia!

Forging new ground in a cappella music, Sam became the first solo a cappella act to compete against groups, winning two Ward Swingle Awards in the process for his Jazz and Pop performances at the 2003 Vokal Total International A Cappella Competition in Graz, Austria. His first solo CD "One Mouth Band" was nominated for Best Vocal Jazz Album by JPF IndieMusic Awards, and Sam’s performance and recording credits include work with artists as diverse as DJ Qbert, Joe Satriani, and Ramblin' Jack Elliot. He is currently a finalist in the 1st US Beatboxing Championships.
