The band is led by entertainer and musician Linda Tatarian, lead vocalist playing 5-string banjo. Her husband, Chris Tatarian plays rhythm guitar and sings back-up vocals. Linda & Chris are the ‘roots’ of RRB and have been playing together for over 20 years. The bass beat for RRB is provided by ‘Smiling’ Bill Benning of Troy, OH, playing acoustic/electric bass guitar.
