Jun 11, 2015 IN LOVING MEMORY OF RITA ROGERS (1937-2012)

THE TALENTED RITA ROGERS

(January 10, 1937 – June 11, 2012)

Setting her sights on Hollywood, Rita Rogers performed in nightclub shows from Reno to San Francisco before lighting up the silver screen in Elvis Presley films, as she danced her way into show business.

By the age of 25, Rita than married to her first husband, LeRoy Robert Romero had given birth to three children. Before her children would reach their teens, Rita had acted in dozens of motion pictures and TV shows, and had made numerous stage, radio, and concert appearances since her “Elvis” days, including performing with the legendary night tripper, Dr. John (Mac Rebennack), and with her son Robby Romero.

Taos News: How would have Dennis Hopper celebrated his 79th birthday? It’s difficult to tell but most likely an Easy Rider Ride would have appealed to him. Over 150 riders and a large crowd of fans participated in the second annual Dennis Hopper Day…

“We wanted to commemorate Dennis and his many contributions to Taos,” said Robby Romero. “We had a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine, which made for a wonderful ride. I believe that the spirit of Dennis Hopper was with us and having a great time. ”

2015 Academy Award Winner Patricia Arquette was among the events special guests. “I got to make two movies with Dennis,” she said. “He made the first truly independent film that was very successful, “Easy Rider” which changed the possibilities for independent cinema. He was an incredible person and I am happy to be here to honor him, in this town, his home, a place that he loved so much.”

The first thing on actor and blues musician Gary Farmer’s mind was getting a drink of water. Farmer and dozens of motorcyclists had just arrived in Ranchos De Taos from a rally in Santa Fe where the first event in Sunday’s (May 17) “Easy Rider Ride” took place.

A screening of “Easy Rider” and costume contest took place at Old Martina’s Hall as part of the commemoration celebration, which also featured music by Robby Romero and Robert Mirabal of Iron Horse. “At any given moment our iconic historical figures are present with us, from Mable Dodge Lujan to Dennis Hopper,” said Mirabal. “It’s good to celebrate the blessings they bestowed on us. They represent the intensity of the Wild West and the freedom of who we are.”
