      Wilbur Roger Harris. A native of Washington, D.C. The home town legend as a child was infatuated with music and musical instruments. His father bought him his first guitar when he was 12 years old. Besides being self-taught, Wil's world-renown Uncle "jazz musician Frank Wess" paid for his first guitar lessons from "Jazz virtuoso  "Bill Harris".  As a teenager, Wil performed in the local music scene of Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, (today called the DMV area), with local bands. He became quite popular there and made a huge impact and name for himself locally. Music royalty runs in Wil's family gene pool, as world-renown pianist and singer "Nina Simone" was also Wil's cousin.
