Bernie Rogers has been a music fan his whole life. While
appreciating many kinds of music from a young age, it was
when he was about 13 and got his first snare drum, that he
realized he wanted to play instruments. He then picked up
his parents old Harmony acoustic guitar at the age of 15.
With encouragement from a friend in high school who taught
him his first couple songs on electric guitar, there was no
going backward. When the garage band he played with lost
their bass player, Bernie took to the bass guitar role right
away. Bernie has since become a multi-instrumentalist and
taken on production and engineering duties in his own
recording studio while recording 3 albums of instrumental
music, playing most of the instruments himself.
