Roland Guerin

Roland grew up in a musical family. He first learned music from his mother, a bass player who taught him that you can’t make it in music without a strong groove and feeling. Guerin studied at Southern University in Baton Rouge, where he joined legendary jazz educator Alvin Batiste’s Band, the Jazztronauts. He later began to tour the world as a member of jazz guitarist Mark Whitfield's Band. During this time Guerin explored the jazz genre; which ultimately proved to be an avenue toward success. He had the opportunity to perform with such greats as George Benson, Jimmy Scott, Frank Morgan, Vernel Fournier, and Gerry Mulligan.
