The Band

Tupelo Honey is a celebration of the music of the man with many names. They call him “Van The Man”, they call him “The Master”…He was one of earliest inductees into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and has written some of the most iconic songs in popular music… He is Van Morrison.

“Moondance”, “Into The Mystic”, “Brown Eyed Girl”, “Have I Told You Lately”, “Crazy Love”, “Someone Like You”, “Crazy Love” …the list goes on and on and on and Tupelo Honey celebrates this impressive catalog of songs with some of the finest musicians.

Tupelo Honey is a celebration. Sing along, dance, and enjoy the great music. We’re here to make sure you have a wonderful time!

Comprised of some of the finest musicians on the East Coast, each band member is dynamic on their own, but as a band they are electric.

When you watch the musicians in Tupelo Honey, you’re seeing the real thing. No special effects, no backing tracks, no tricks. Just great music, written by a legendary songwriter. And most importantly… a GREAT TIME!

J.D. Ross – Lead Vocals

Jim DeRosa

—Lead Vocals

The man upfront is Jim DeRosa. A veteran of over 3000 live performances as a Singer, Master of Ceremonies, Host and much more. He’s pure energy on stage. Singing, joking, and interacting with the other band members. His powerful, 4 octave range is hard to miss.


Cyriese Lambert

—Lead & Backing Vocals

With the voice of an angel, Cyriese is the perfect counter balance to Jim’s booming vocals. Her range, tone and presence are extraordinary. Cyriese has been a working musician for several years and has performed with some of the best names in the music. Whether she’s upfront, doing a duet or on backing vocals, her talent can’t be missed.


Ralph Vargas

—Drums & Percussion

The motor behind it all, Ralph’s drumming keeps everyone together. His experience & style assures he can provide the time necessary and the flair he’s know for. His electric playing is exciting to watch and impossible not to feel.

“Boots” Anderson – Guitar

“Boots” Anderson


“Boots” Anderson has been one of the most sought after guitarists in the New York Metro Area for years. With a background in everything from Jazz to Pop to Classical, “Boots” can do it all.

Robin Corley – Saxophone & Flute

Robin Corley

—Saxophone & Flute

Robin brings a lyrical style to Tupelo Honey that fits perfectly with the styles of Van Morrison. Listening to his solos in songs like “Moondance,” “Into The Mystic,” “Sweet Thing,” “Crazy Love,” and so much more.

Robbie Wingler - Bass

Robbie Wingler


Robbie has been mastering the bass most of his life. His skill and intuitive stylings add a solid bottom to both the funkiest of blues and most subtle ballads. He is experienced in everything from Jazz to R&B and Rock.


We thoroughly enjoyed the show, what a pleasant surprise. We definitely recommend them to everyone!
Greg & Carolyn from Hatfield
We absolutely loved them! We danced and sang all night long to every song. The night we saw the show was actually their 2nd time performing the Van Morrison celebration. Was blown away when we found that out. We thought they have been performing together for years! ❤️ Can't wait to see them again!
Tammy May
Totally enjoyed the band. He sounds so much like Van Morrison.
Karen Lewis
Absolutely awesome Friday night at the Landis Theater in Vineland NJ.

My husband and I saw your performance last night in Newton. We travelled all the way from Louisville, Kentucky and you did not disappoint. Vantastic! ❤️ You asked for song suggestions so here are a few of our favorites to consider. The Healing Game, Sweet Thing, In the Garden, In the Days Before Rock and Roll, Philosophers Stone, Rain Check, Stranded, Queen of the Slipstream, Enlightenment… I could go on and on 😊...
Gail Weigand McCall

Erin Philbin Parfitt
We saw you guys last weekend at the Newton Performing Arts Center... what an awesome show!!! The tickets were my bday gift from my boyfriend and I couldn't have asked for anything better. We love Van Morrison believe that he could sing the ABC song and make it magical and you guys just did his music proud... we loved it!! Thank you all for helping to celebrate my 58th in such a memorable way. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Robin & Alec Kirkley
I’m a serious Vanatic since Passaic 1979 and I saw you tonight at Etta Park in East Windsor tonight. I’ve seen The Man every tour ever since. Now that I’ve established my bona fides I wanted to let you know that you are fantastic! I enjoyed the show so much and I am so glad to have seen your performance for the first time but not the last. I’ve posted your setlist and a couple of videos of tonight’s show in a Van Fan group and I am already receiving responses raving about you. I can’t wait to hear from my European friends tomorrow. Thank you for an incredible evening!!!
Adam Falk
You guys did a great job last night and made our night special by recognizing our wedding song. We never had a chance to dance alone to that as our wedding party all joined us immediately, it was nice to share that with my wife alone, except for the 300 people watching us. Thanks again, we will see you guys again.
Rusty Smith
Easily one of the best live shows you'll see this year. An absolute BLAST!!
