Meet the Band Members

 

LisaFace

Lisa

Lisa’s parents were part of an Irish band, but her passion is for Americana. Starting on the 5 string banjo, she moved to the guitar as lead singer. Her vision is to cover the songs she loves with her own individuality.

Born in the Deep South but now living in the Wild West, Keith enjoys tipping cows, rustling horses, racing pickup trucks and making Moonshine.
Fun fact: he has played at Idle Working Men's Club.                          .

RichardFace bw

Richard

5 String Banjo player, semi-pro keyboard player, and retired professional yacht skipper. Used to spend 50% of the gig tuning his banjo, and the other 50% playing out of tune, but a new set of strings and a shiny new banjo seems to have sorted it!                                .

Ray HS

Ray brings 'twang' to the band! Often seen playing a Telecaster he helps drive Hopeville's unique sound.
