davis-rogan

Salvage Station is proud to announce that Davis Rogan of HBO's TREME will be performing a free show on Wednesday, November 11th at 8pm. Davis is a fifth-generation New Orleanian who served as an actor, scriptwriter, piano coach, and songwriter as well as the muse for the popular character, Davis McAlary, over the show's four-year run.

James' many insane characters appear as celebrated guests all over the podcast-o-sphere. He is a staple on IFC's Comedy Bang!
