Roger Humphries was just 3 1/2 years old when his family discovered his drum talent. He began playing professionally at fourteen and led his group at Carnegie Music Hall when he was sixteen. "I've loved music for as long as I can remember." He was encouraged by his older brothers, Lawrence Jr. and Norman, who were musicians then. 

After playing with various groups around the country, ace drummer Roger Humphries decided to organize his group in 1972, which he called RH Factor. In 1996, he assembled the Roger Humphries' Big Band. Roger gives special thanks to Dr. Harry Clark, principal of The Pittsburgh High School for the Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA), who has allowed him to have such a beautiful experience teaching the kids at the school, and to Dr. Nathan Davis, who gave him an opportunity to teach and touch the lives of students at the University of Pittsburgh. Roger has influenced the careers of many of his students and musicians by participating in several clinics such as the Slippery Rock University Summer Jazz workshop, Mellon Jazz Masters Class, and Concerts, and the teaching goes on primarily on the stage.
