Eddie Davis, Singer/Songwriter, known for his soulful, dynamic style & warm personality, has been performing and recording Blues for many years. Eddie is a recording artist, published songwriter, record producer and has performed locally and nationally with the best musicians anywhere. Eddie was chosen, specifically, by the record company to be the singer on the acclaimed blues album, Re-Discovering Lonnie Johnson. Other acclaimed blues songs and albums by Eddie are, Blues Diamonds, “Blues Is My Business and Business Is Good,” plus “Crazy Kinda Way” and “Good News, Still Singin’ The Blues,” both written by Eddie Davis, to name a few. As a side note, Eddie also had success writing, “Doin’ The Zombie,” recorded by Chubby Checker and “Mia Amore,” recorded by Major Harris. As a singer, who always loved the Blues, singing with Blues Anatomy is a dream come true.

Roger Girke, Guitarist/Singer/Songwriter, has performed over 5,000 career live shows, concerts and festivals in addition to numerous recording sessions and multi-artist releases. Roger's career began performing in rock bands in the eastern PA/NJ area, eventually joining the legendary Philadelphia area roots rock band Pickins (Capitol/Ariola), followed by many years of touring and recording with Sharks (Elektra), Robert Hazard (RCA), and many other notable artists. Since 2000 Roger has released 5 CD's and has regularly performed at blues festivals, clubs and concerts throughout the Mid-Atlantic. In that time, he has also recorded and performed with Gary Allegretto (Los Angeles, CA), Sam Cockrell (Chicago, IL), Jimmy Pritchard (DE) and most recently Mike Guldin (PA)

A *NEW* 14 song release is fully recorded and in post-production and will feature over a dozen well known Mid-Atlantic/East coast musicians with Roger in a diverse roots and rockin' blues recording. A 2024 release is planned on all platforms with CD's and download cards available online and at all live events.

Rick Prince, Bassist, is not called “The Prince of Basses” for nothing. Rick is one of the most in-demand Blues bass players in the tri-state region. As a songwriter, producer, arranger and “in-house” session player for a number of recording studios, Rick’s musical background & experience is most impressive. When you want that solid bottom you bring in Rick Prince on bass, he’ll give you that & plenty more. The Ray Charles quote, “Simplicity Is Genius” is the perfect way to explain the bass playing of Rick Prince.

Freddie Rojo, Drummer, has performed and recorded with Tommy Conwell, G. Love, Mutlu, Schoolly D and many others. He also performed nationally and recorded with Singer-Songwriter Amos Lee from 2002 until 2018. Freddie began playing drums at the age of nine, inspired by his Parent’s love of Jazz & Big Band music, his neighbor’s Motown and R&B record collection, the great diverse Philadelphia radio stations of the time (both am & fm) and by seeing Ringo on The Ed Sullivan Show that fateful night in February 1964. This started a lifelong journey down a musical path that took Freddie to the prestigious Philadelphia College of Performing Arts. There, he studied classical percussion with Anthony Orlando of the Philadelphia Orchestra. He has also taken private lessons with studio legends Bernard Purdie in NYC & with James Gadson in LA. Freddie has always kept one thing in the front of his musical mind: “Make it feel good!”

Marky B, Harmonica Player (Blues Harp), has played, toured & recorded with an array of local, regional & national acts including Buddy Guy, Sister Blue and Sonny Rhodes. Marky B is a skilled player adept in both diatonic & chromatic harmonicas, specializing in Blues, R&B and American roots music. Marky B is an in-demand session player and has performed various styles of music on soundtracks & jingles for TV & radio. This musician plays with such feeling, warmth & soul you want to listen to him play all night long.
