Roger Wilder Trio

Roger Wilder Trio

Presented by American Jazz Museum at Blue Room Jazz Club

Roger Wilder became interested in music through his father’s (Donald Wilder, b. 1932), mother’s (Alison Herriott Wilder, b. 1935), and sister’s (Laura, b. 1958) piano playing and brother’s (Chris, b. 1960) drumming.  Wilder started piano lessons at age 8 and trombone lessons at age 9. Through the influence of drum teacher Vinnie Ruggiero, brother Chris became interested in jazz and started drumming professionally as a teenager.

In 2000, the Wilder family moved to the Kansas City area, where Wilder has worked with the Boulevard Big Band, Colleen Cassidy, Angela Hagenbach, Sons of Brasil, and the Westport Art Ensemble, among others.
