Jeff Roberts , who was born in Danville, Kentucky, began his musical career picking banjo with Earl Taylor and the Stoney Mountain Boys in 1975. Later that year, he joined the Katie Laur Band, with whom he traveled extensively for many years. He spent three years with the Charlie Sizemore band before becoming a member of the Ohio Valley Rounders in 1990. The Ohio Valley Rounders became known as the Comet Bluegrass All-Stars in 1997 and Jeff still enjoys making music with them. Today, Jeff is a full-time musician and banjo teacher. His many years of experience and his love of bluegrass music are readily apparent in his exceptionally tasteful and authentic style.
Tim Strong plays lead and rhythm guitar and is also an accomplished mandolinist. He was born in Fort Thomas, Kentucky and started learning to play guitar and mandolin at age nine in his dad's local band, Spring Valley Bluegrass. When he was fourteen, he recorded with and became a member of his brother's band, Gary Strong and Hardtimes. Tim treasures those years as he was able to meet many of the Bluegrass greats while touring. Since then, Tim has performed as a member of the Ohio Valley Rounders, the Comet Bluegrass All-Stars, and Chris Jones and The Night Drivers. Tim currently co-hosts a radio show in Cincinnati on WAIF 88.3 FM called "Bluegrass in the Valley" every Saturday morning from 8am to 10am.
Artie Werner was raised in West Portsmouth, Ohio and began playing bass at age thirteen. During his high school years, he played with local bands and also fill-in dates (when school would allow) with Earl Taylor and The Stoney Mountain Boys. After graduation, he relocated to Cincinnati to join Vernon McIntyre, and then moved on to Orlando, Florida, for a two year stint with Jim Fee & Big Timber. During his time with Big Timber, he was also a member of Disney World's "Country Bear Jamboree". Artie has appeared with such bluegrass legends as Jim McCall, Mac Wiseman, Hylo Brown, and Jimmy Martin. One of Artie's fondest memories is performing on his nineteenth birthday on Bill Monroe's early bird show at the Grand Ole Opry and later being invited by Mr. Monroe to visit his church, where they played a few songs for the congregation. Artie and Missy met in 1990, were married a short time later, and have been playing music together ever since.
