An Idaho native, Ross has been a noted name in the Southern Idaho music scene for 5 decades.  As the primary vocalist and lead guitarist of TOR, he leads the lineup and serves as manager for the band.

As the other instrumental soloist, Jamie provides the much-needed colors available to keyboards (piano, organ, strings, marimba, etc.) and the saxophone.  He is the youngest of three Boise brothers noted for musical excellence.

 

Randy Steward:   vocals, drums

A product of California, Randy had been both a drummer and singer/songwriter.  In TOR he provides the baritone/bass voice and lays down the beat that is the backbone of rock 'n' roll.

 

Joe Baldassarre:   vocals, bass

A full-time music professor at Boise State for 36 years and Cleveland native, Joe is known as a multi-instrumentalist.  In TOR, he is the other half of a solid rhythm section and provides the high tenor vocals.
