Jerry Heeschen- Bass guitar and vocals:
Jerry''s hometown is Santa Clara, CA. Jerry''s a seasoned bass player, and he makes up one-half of what is said to be the tightest rhythm section around. Musicians refer to his performance as SOLID-often comparing his style to that of Jack Bruce. Always up and never without a smile on his face--for Jerry, no gig is less than fantastic!
Jeff Rippin- Guitars, vocals and saxophones
Jeff''s hometown is Tracy, CA, and he is the leader of the band. His soaring six-string work has a unique style all his own. He and his guitar meld together in the ultimate wail of soul-tearing hard rock that never fails to grip his audience.
Dave Muhoberac- Vocals and more vocals:
Dave''s hometown is Boise Idaho and is the front man for the band. He is a recent addition to RIPPIN. He has had professional vocal coaches but for the most part is self taught. Influences include Aerosmith, Creed and Staind.
Paul Dorato- Drums and vocals:
Paul comes to the Bay Area from Niagara Falls, New York. It was the Northern California music scene that brought him to the Bay Area where he has finally found a home with RIPPIN. Paul has been playing drums for years, and his style is reminiscent of John Bonham and Keith Moon. Paul''s wit and wild antics are second only to his outstanding talent as a lyricist and vocalist.
We have 2 other very important members.
Christopher Bentley--Studio Engineer and assistant producer
