Lead Guitar / Lead Vocals
Pat’s agile and accurate guitar style grip the listener, while his voice strikes a chord that leaves you wanting more. Self-taught at 12 years old, he began writing songs shortly after. Mr. O’Handley’s voice (reminiscent of the late Bon Scott with undercurrents of the southern soul of John Fogerty) styles original lyrics and charges unforgettable nights of rock.
GUY “IKE” PERRIN
Guitar / Vocals
A highly skilled and disciplined player, Ike has mastered lead guitar with a personal style that separates tones with a powerful force. Steady and strong, Guy’s melodic mastery has evolved from his family’s musical roots and his appreciation of quality music.
BEN “SLIM” WANNER

Bombastic. Ruling the drums and driving the ‘Train with his fantastic array of movements, dynamics and accents, Slim’s energetic personality and playfulness make Rippertrain a band bursting with excitement and pulsating rhythms.
Telling stories, one beat at a time.
Bass Guitar / Vocals
Deep and steady… and he plays bass.
