Roger Harrison - piano, Roger has been playing piano since he was nine in his native Washington, D.C.. His father introduced him to the instrument. Since it was a choice between music and tap dancing, (which he was no good at and hated with a passion) he choose music.
He continued with private lessons and formal music education in college studying and performing classical, jazz and American popular music.
Since arriving in LA he's been busy as a band leader, singer and composer. He's done several recording dates with the band and one of his songs "Mystery" was featured in a HBO movie.
The band is now pretty busy performing at private parties, restaurants and hotels. The most recent CD is "Jazz Club". The next project will be a CD of jazz standards. He will sing on this project and will include other talented artists.
