Peter Rogan grew up in the 1970's playing rock and blues. He discovered jazz in his late teens and started to study music more seriously in his early twenties. Not fitting in with the hair bands of the early 80's, Peter abandoned rock and roll and dove into jazz full-time. He moved to NYC in 1985 and studied with Leni Stern, took some one off lessons with John Abercrombie and Wayne Krantz and tried to play and jam as much as possible with people in the jazz world. Returning to Pennsylvania to take a steady paying musical job, he began playing weddings, bar mitzvahs, and all kinds of society jobs in and around the eastern PA, NJ, and New York areas. He did this for many years. Finally leaving a musical career to better support his wife and three children. Peter currently works in a steel mill in Reading, Pa.
