Sammy’s Rockin’ Island Bar and Grill is the latest Sammy Hagar restaurant that offers your favorite pub foods and Hawaiian selections with island flair.

Sammy’s Rockin’ Island Bar and Grill is a spectacular new oasis in the heart of Roseville, CA. The restaurant resides in the former JC Penney department store building. Originally built in the early 1920s, the building has been through a variety of transformations but nothing like its current makeover!
SHOW ALERT! February 8 in Lake Havasu has been postponed. We are sorry to let our friends know this. We will announce a make up date as soon as we get a new show in this great location on the Colorado River. We have done lots of River Runs over the years and have many friends near Laughlin.
On February 14, Valentine’s Day love rules! This Valentine’s Day I have my brand new song planned for release! The new song is called “Sugar Sweet”! It features Kirk Nelson on keyboards, Brian Beal on bass, Stan Hack on drums and I get in some smokin’ guitar playing on a smooth bluesrock groove. Watch for our new song release announcement, on Valentines Day, Feb. 14. It will be on sale at iTunes and Amazon MP3!
Blues Magic is the title of my new album of songs that I have written, We play most of the new songs at the shows. I was thrilled to get word from the editor at Vintage Guitar magazine that they were including an album review in the their March issue! On the streets January 20, or sent to you by subscription, this guitar player favorite magazine features Billy Gibbons on the cover and a cool very supportive review of Blues Magic. Thank you writer John Heidt for listening to the songs and giving a great review: “Veteran gigger Wilson has put together a pop rock extravaganza. Standouts include the minor-key title cut with some jazzy changes and hot soloing, and the melodic “Cryin’ Lonely Teardrops,” which in a fair world would be a big hit. See him when he comes to your town.”
