WILSON ROBERTS is an extremely versatile and dynamic solo entertainer who has performed in 45 States and 8 Canadian Provinces.

An award winning songwriter, Wilson has had his songs performed and recorded by various artists and has had modest success as a recording artist with an upper Midwest pop hit in the late 1970's. "You're Gonna' Come Back To Me" reached the top ten play list of radio stations in several states.
In recent years, Wilson's mainstay in the entertainment business has been performing as a solo entertainer at clubs, resorts, and other venues across the United States. He has mixed these activites with performances of his original material at colleges, concerts, radio and television shows, and all kinds of special events.
"Today's music is technically perfect, but it seems as though once it's off the radio, it's gone forever. I feel especially blessed to have come up in an era of great music that is essentially timeless. An evening of my music in a club situation consists of me performing "non-stop" familiar songs that mean a lot to me, and everyone else connected with those periods of time. I'm at my best when people are involved and singing along. I never really know what's going to happen next......., everybody having fun is the important thing!".
