Mary Lane: A longtime staple of Chicago's West Side blues circuit, singer Mary Lane was born November 23, 1935 in Clarendon, Arkansas. After honing her skills in local juke joints in the company of Howlin' Wolf, Robert Nighthawk, Little Junior Parker and James Cotton, Lane relocated to Chicago in 1957; backed by Morris Pejoe, she soon cut her debut single "You Don't Want My Lovin' No More" for the Friendly Five label. A favorite among peers for her dulcet tones, she nevertheless did not record again for several decades, remaining virtually unknown outside of the Chicago blues faithful; finally, in the early 1990s, Lane recorded a handful of tracks for the Wolf label, leading to 1997's full-length Appointment with the Blues.
Sumito 'Ariyo' Ariyoshi:
Sumito Ariyoshi, aka Ariyo is internationally recognized for his vigorous innovative piano style. He’s an accomplished arranger and sought after studio musician. He's shared the stage and toured the world with such legends as Otis Rush, Jimmy Rogers, Robert Jr. Lockwood, Eddie Shaw, Valerie Wellington, B.B.King, Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Ariyo currently is a permanent member of  Billy Branch & The S.O.B.'s.
Harlan Terson: Harlan Lee Terson has been a familiar figure on Chicago's musical landscape for 40 years, recording and touring internationally with some of Chicago's greatest blues artists. He has played bass on more than forty five recordings and jingles, two of which have been nominated for the Grammy award. He maintains a busy performing and teaching schedule, contributing his deep, steady groove to various bands and projects.
Tony Mangiullo: Born in Milano, Italy 1958. Started playing detergent boxes, chairs, pots and pans with spoons at the age of 3-5. Destroyed his first toy drum set on his 5th b-day which was finally replaced with a decent set at the age 14. Got interested in Chicago Blues and contribute to the start of the Mean Mistreaters Blues Band (Giancarlo Crea, Maurizio Simpsi)  back in Milano, Italy.  Came to Chicago in 1978 after meeting Jr. Wells and Buddy Guy in Milan. Tony found the true spirit of the blues at South side lounges like the legendary Theresa's Lounge, and begin to play with the likes of John Primer, Sammy Lawhorn, Ernest Johnson and later on with Homesick James, Big Walter Horton and joined the Jimmy Rogers Blues Band with Wild Child Butler, Hip Linkchain, Sumito 'Ariyo' Ariyoshi.
He opened Rosa's Lounge (1984) as a tribute to those cradles of blues tradition, and named it after his mother, Rosa, who had followed him here to help.
