Anson Funderburgh, a native of Texas, has spent the majority of his adult life playing the blues, with influences from blues legends such as Freddie King, Albert Collins, Jimmy Reed and Bill Doggett. Anson has earned the respect of artists like Delbert McClinton, Boz Scaggs, Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan and Ronnie Earl. Over the years, these musicians have called on Anson
to lend his tremendous guitar talents to their projects.
In 1984, Funderburgh met Sam Myers during a gig in Jackson, Mississippi where The Rockets played frequently. Myers began sitting in with the band whenever they were in town and in 1986 joined the band full-time.
