Jeff was born in St. Louis. He moved around following his career over the years, and has made Tucson his home the last 4 years. He started playing the Viola at a tender age and made the guitar his instrument of choice since he was 15. His education is in Physics however his career was in Software Development. Jeff has played lead guitar in various bands around the country when time permitted. As much as we’d like Jeff to stay with us, he is temporarily on ‘loan’ from his other commitments. We are thrilled to have him play with ROH Band again, and now with Wok on board, we have to release him as promised. You'll see Jeff still with us through Feb 2020,.

Wok is totally excited to join ROH Band and we can't wait to add his extraordinary talent to the team both on lead guitar and vocals. We are sure you'll love Wok as much as we do and are thrilled to be working together.
