The Players

Ron Lawrence

Ron is one of the original members of the Jericho Road Crew. He is a lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the band. He also dabbles in the tin whistle. Ron composes much of the original music for the band. He likes many different styles of music, but particularly enjoys Celtic music; and that has been an influence on many of his compositions.

Ron is a devoted husband and father of three. He and his wife, Kathleen, live in a house they built themselves, nestled in the hills of Essex, Vermont.

Kathy McLean

Kathy McLean has always loved to sing and perform. She admits possessing a prideful attitude toward her gift in her younger days when she thought her heart's desire was to become "a star". Later, in her mid-twenties and beyond, she found a wellspring of joy when she learned to "sing unto the Lord a new song" with a new purpose, to glorify her true Heart's Desire, the Lord Jesus. She blesses the day the Jericho Road Crew requested her services to sing back-ground vocals on a Jars of Clay song. That was her "in" and she has been performing with the Road Crew ever since.

Kathy is not a background singer anymore.

Joe Casilli

Joe has been playing guitar since he was 14 years old and has been in various types of bands throughout the years. He joined the Jericho Road Crew around 1997. He started out playing electric and acoustic guitar for the band but switched to playing bass when the band's bass player at the time, Brian McLean (yes, Brian is the son of Kathy McLean), left for college. He likes classical, blues, country and, of course, Christian/Inspirational music. Joe lives with his wife, Lori, and son, Joey, in Jericho, Vermont.

Tracy Lord

Tracy is a father of three and a life-long Vermonter. He and his wife have recently built a new home in Colchester, the town of his youth.

Tracy has recorded & produced numerous albums for many local bands (His Majesty, Jericho Road Crew, Friday's Angst, Yankee Pot Roast, Tim Brick, Jimmy T Thurston, Keeghan Nolan).
