Ed Bogas is a American musician who has composed music for various media including video games. He has a sophisticated music style, being able to compose music in many genres including rock and jazz. Ed worked for various game companies including Equilibrium and Spectrum Holobyte. He has also previously played as the keyboardist in the band "The United States of America".

In 1992, some of Ed's music from The Music Studio (AST) was used in the infamous game Action 52 (NES) and Cheetahmen II (NES). While it is rumored that the creator of the games, Vince Perri, stole the music, Ed Bogas may have given his consent to use the music in the games. This is a subject Ed has wished not to talk about.

Some of Ed's notable works are for the Fritz the Cat, Garfield, and Peanuts movies. He's also known for game soundtracks such as Action 52/Cheetahmen and Gran Turismo 4.
