Randy Hart has played piano and keyboards since he was a kid, however, his early career in the music industry was booking bands in the Washington DC area.

They were so impressed they hired him to hit the road with them. The band took Randy to Los Angeles where another part of his career developed when he became a studio musician. He met Roger Miller during a session in 1978 and soon toured with Roger, becoming his manager and Musical Director for over eight years.
