The LONE STAR PICKERZ BAND as of May 2023 are 27 years young!  To add to the fun, WAYNE-O, RON & DAVID created Lone Star Pickerz Trio; a bite size version.

Wayne-o Martin is our lead vocalist who plays guitar and mandolin who calls COWTOWN {Ft. Worth} his hometown. He along with TEXAS RADIO HALL OF FAME member and monster picker Steven O. Sellers started a duo called Dos Pickerz in 1996 in the San Antonio area. Wayne handles all bookings and promotions for the band.  With over 2,000 gigz in the rear view he has had a blast!  Wayne is the owner/founder of the band. 

Rejoining the LSP Band in October 2020 is Ron Haddock on bass guitar, keys and singing lead and harmony vocals. He spent 3 years on his first "tour of duty with LSP". Ron has decades of experience on stages across several states and is a native of Levenworth, Kansas.  Ron had the honor of playing bass and singing harmony for Paulette Carlson who founded the band HIGHWAY 101. She charted 4 #1 NATIONAL hits and 7 top 10 hits too. Ron also was Melissa Etheridge's FIRST bass player!  This boy has tremendous pipes, a great attitude, a loveable cut-up and is our stage manager too!

Veteran pro drummer REUBEN PRESAS has been an educator for decades teaching music and is our fine drummer.  Reuben was with the SLIM ROBERTS bam

nd for decades and I have always enjoyed his style.  He is a native San Antonian with a great work ethic and always on the money so Reuben is a great Man to lead our rhythm section.

We have a very fine Steel guitar player and Lead guitarist in Jim Gardner.  Jim is a Beeville, Texas native and sure adds alot to our TRADITIONAL AND CLASSIC COUNTRY sound!  We feature him playing CHET ATKINS style guitar.  Jim for many years played in REAL Country bands in both Abilene and Waco Texas.  For decades, Jim was a corporate pilot after serving in the USAF  as a pilot.  Jim is now the Corporate pilot for LONE STAR PICKERZ.

It is our great fortune in 2020 to have Dallas Texas native David Russell play fiddle with LONE STAR PICKERZ!  David is a native of Dallas who spent 25 years in Nashville on "the BIG STAGE", the Grand Ole Opry.  David played for BOXCAR WILLIE for several years and then for years played on the OPRY for CMA HALL OF FAME member STONEWALL JACKSON!  David was on many recordings cut in Nashville as a studio musician, but came home to TEXAS because they just don't use much fiddle on so called "Country" recordings anymore!  He missed REAL COUNTRY music.

This is the 2023 lineup of LONE STAR PICKERZ.    

We try to keep our audience surprised with our playlist and never bored!  We are proud to be a TRADITIONAL COUNTRY dance band that covers hits made famous by artists like George Strait, Don Williams, Hal Ketcham, Gene Watson, The Mavericks, Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, Joe Diffie, Mel Tillis, Brooks & Dunn, Don Gibson, Mel McDaniel, Josh Turner, Charlie Pride and Dale Watson.  We are happy to feature several Classic Country artists such as George Jones, Bob Wills, Hank Williams, Sr., Ray Price, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Johnny Bush, Johnny Rodriguez and more. You will hear Texas Music artists songs from Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Jeff Walker, Billy Joe Shaver, Darius Rucker, Rodney Crowell, Randy Rogers Jimmy Buffett, Guy Clark & others.  We also mix in some 50’s-60’s OLDIES Rock and Roll from Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Roy Orbison and Chuck Berry and the Everly Bros.  We focus on familiar music people can dance to and sing along with and remember. We have fun on stage and people dance, sing along and have a good time!  In our past, were an opening band for Leon Rausch and the TEXAS PLAYBOYS!  In June 08, we were an opening band for Nashville recording star, DAVID BALL

  In 2007, Our four-member band  was one of the opening bands for the MARSHALL
