Darrell Petersen – Vocals
Darrell’s first band was The One in 1965 in Wangaratta, until he joined St Pete Florida Movement in 1967–1969. A lengthy break until Jackhammer began in 1997 in which his son Joel played guitar following the musical footsteps (of whom Darrell is so proud as he is also such a fine musician). He has performed with Damaged Goodz and now more recently he has brought his great vocal talents to the Riffmasters.

He has played in many jazz and blues bands over the past 35 years, at venues such as Jazz After Dark at the Melbourne Arts Centre, The Royal Derby Hotel, local and interstate music festivals. He loves to perform in a small jazz guitar setting which gives him plenty of open space for soloing, as well as working in a larger setting such as the Riffmasters!
Tony Luxmore – Piano
Tony has played a broad range of music styles from Latin, soul, jazz and blues. He has focussed more recently on providing live backing for aspiring singers and further developing his blues and jazz rock keyboard style.
Frank Morgan – Bass
Mature aged bass player (and is still playing) experienced in practically all genres of music (except classical) including rock, pop, blues, latin, fusion, jazz and blues. He doesn’t have the credentials of some of the other more esteemed band members but has been around a long time and played with all sorts of people both past and present. Enjoying playing with the Riffmasters.
Paul Anastassopoulos – Drums
Paul started playing drums in a traditional Greek band at the age of 15. Then in later teens was involved with an originals rock band playing the 'Muso's lounge ' scenes around Richmond. He also played percussion for David Jaanz for a short stint. From there followed some gospel and worship music with various musicians. And now playing with Riffmasters for almost five years.
