ian musgrove

lead & backing vocals, guitars

Ian “Super dude” Musgrove is a virtual nobody who, in a freak accident involving a rogue DeLorean and a ColecoVision gaming console was transported from 1986 to our present day. Dazed and confused with no real life skills beyond “putting out the vibe” and a passion for high top sneakers, he heard the sounds of his day coming from a local pub for which he walked inside. It was there that he first saw “The Molly Ringwald Project” and for the first time in a long time he felt as if he was back in his own time and knew he NEEDED to be a part of this most righteous of bands. Since then he has toured the US singing, has played a personal showcase for Clive Davis himself at CBGB’s New York and even wrote and sold one of his personal songs called “butterfly” to Chaka Khan for a 2008 CD to raise funds and awareness for Autism (Although unfortunately never released publicly.) Though it may be sad to report that, for technological reasons he won’t be able to return to the year 1986, he has found a most excellent home with the next best thing.. TMRP!

roxanne morganstern

lead & backing vocals

Roxanne has been performing live for over 27 years. Originally classically trained on piano and a self-proclaimed Band Camp geek on clarinet, she often dreamed of playing keyboards in a rock band in her youth. She never imagined that her voice would take her Irving Plaza in NYC, the Dome Room in Chicago, the Luxor in Las Vegas, the Church in Denver, the Glass house in LA, among many many other venues and festivals. 

Born of Austrian descent, her second language of German has helped her book many jobs as a jingle singer for Austrian and German radio stations. She has sung with many bands, but her most successful and well-known group was Electric Skychurch, an iconic electronica band of the 90’s and 00’s, which was featured in the award winning documentary, “Better Living through Circuitry”. The band’s album “Together” was shortlisted for a Grammy.

Roxanne’s first musical love was Rock and Roll. She will back up the statement, “Def Leppard changed my life.” At age 12, you would find hundreds of pictures of early hair metal bands gracing her walls.  Roxanne is thrilled to be singing the music of her teens on a regular basis. Rock was her first love, and it ain’t noise pollution.

bobby mckee

lead guitar

Bobby has been playing guitar since the 8th grade when he asked for his first guitar at Christmas. After high school he went to Grove School of Music in Los Angeles then came back and started his first band in the early 80's which eventually turned into Primal Tribe with Rob Cantrell. Primal Tribe's song "Beautiful"  was featured on a local Santa Barbara compilation album called Santa Barbara's unsigned hero's. Primal Tribe regrouped about 15 years later performing 90's cover songs, then several band members shifted to start  the 80's band The Molly Ringwald Project and the rest is history!

l.p bertelsen

drums

LP is an absolutely amazing drummer. He did his first tour at age 19 to Hungary and Czechoslovakia. He has been playing in the Santa Ynez Valley and all over the central coast with different bands for years and he is one of the first go-to guys local musicians call when they need a fill in, studio or session drummer. 

Jay Carlander

Keys

Jay Carlander (Keyboards) is a multi-instrumentalist and longtime fan of TMRP who, to borrow some 80s lingo, is way stoked to have gotten the chance to join the raddest of bands. The opportunity to join came while he was studying for a history exam at the Circle K in San Dimas and a dude said to him, “dude, you kind of look like Keanu Reeves, but not really.” Immediately after, a phone booth descended out of the sky, and TMRP bassist Rob Cantrell, wearing a Descendants shirt, emerged and said, “dude, you’re screwed on your history exam, so you should join TMRP and play keyboards instead.” Carlander was at first startled by the strange goings on at the Circle K, but then recovered his composure and in the immortal words of Ted Theodore Logan said, “excellent!”
