The Band

Boone Staples, Lead Guitar

Boone is from North Richland Hills, Texas.  He grew up listening to his dad’s country music cassette tapes.  Although he enjoys many styles of music, he admits there is nothing like tapping your boots to a sound of a twangin’ Telecaster!  Boone is the father of three sweet and energetic children, and the husband of one good-hearted woman.  Boone is a fightin’ Texas Aggie electrical engineer and a registered Professional Engineer in the great state of Texas.  Interests aside from pickin’ include fishing, woodworking, mathematics and tinkering in the garage!

Bob Hallgren, Bass

Bob Hallgren, bassist and groove master, joins Justin Mason with over 30 years of music history under his belt.  His genre repertoire includes pop, rock, blues, funk, worship and country.   As if that weren’t enough, Bob is also a beloved husband, father of three, and five time grandpappy!    While Bob’s “right brain” enables him to rock with the best of ‘em, his “left brain” moved him through multiple radiopharmaceutical companies and eventually landed him here in the DFW area as Cyclotron Facility Manager for UT Southwestern.  When not managing cyclotron operations or rocking the stages, Bob enjoys traveling, cooking and spending quality time with family and friends.   Fresh in from Chicago, Illinois, Bob is laying down his roots in Irving, TX and plans to stay a while!

Jordan O’Leary, Drums

Jordan has been playing drums for just over 18 years! At the age of 15, he joined a youth praise band that eventually became The J. Walkers, a very successful independent rock band that recorded 3 albums and played 150+ shows each year. At 19, Jordan was living his dream of playing music professionally, traveling across the United States with The J. Walkers. When the band dissolved in 2010, Jordan returned to Texas to pursue a degree in music and business management at the University of North Texas. He studied music theory, ear training, piano, and drums as well as various business curriculums. After graduating from UNT, Jordan continued his education at Berklee College of Music, studying music production and music business curriculum. Jordan works full time as a music producer and professional musician.

Adam Roberts, Keys/Guitar/Mandolin

Adam Roberts joins the band fresh off a short stint living on the west coast.  During his youth he trained in classical piano, and played various instruments in jam bands throughout high school and college.  Although many of these groups have moved on, he admits that music is one unique passion that keeps everyone in contact throughout the years.  Originally from Philadelphia, PA, he has lived in 6 states over the past 7 years working in aerospace manufacturing.  His travels introduced him to the many cultures this great country has to offer, coast-to-coast.  He currently runs a real estate investing business with his girlfriend, Emily, in Fort Worth, Texas.  His interests away from work and music include Penn State football, the outdoors, and piloting piston aircraft.

Vic Andrews, Fiddle/Harmonica

VicVic began studying music at age 3 in a family of musicians. He grew up with a bow in his hands, and by the age of 17 had built a fruitful young career both at home and internationally as a budding solo performer.

As a first-generation American raised in rural Illinois, Vic elected to forego further music education & performance at age 18 in order to pursue a nomination to the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis MD. He graduated from USNA having earned a commission as an Officer in the United States Marine Corps.  Serving proudly until 2016, and having carried a fiddle at every duty station from North Carolina to Bahrain, Vic came home to the U.S. to reside in Texas where he is thrilled to return to his first craft and contribute to the thriving music community in Texas.
