The “Texas Elderly Brothers” are five old Lampasas guys with deep musical roots. Although our group only dates back to 2015, the Lancaster brothers, Trent and Zane have a lifetime singing together. Trent and Robbis Storm played Folk and County music more than 50 years ago as students at Abilene Christian University. Most of us come from an a cappella, sacred music tradition. Trent, Zane, and Clark Corbin have 20 years of experience with the gospel group “Hims of Praise.” We all enjoy various types of music, but nowadays, we specialize in early rock-n-roll, the finger-popping, toe-tapping music of the late ‘50s and early ‘60s.
Drummer Pete Henniger, at 57, is the youngest of the Elderlies. After studying engineering and business administration at Central Texas College and UT Arlington, he currently works as a general contractor.
Lancaster Plumbing owner, Zane Lancaster, plays rhythm guitar. He enjoys singing lead and harmonies of tunes from the Everly Brothers, the Beatles, and the Beach Boys. His wife Libby is the group’s sound engineer.
Clark Corbin specializes on vocals and electric bass, and is especially fond of fast paced rock-a-billy tunes from the likes of Buddy Holly and early Elvis. When he’s not making music, Clark does custom decorative welding. One of his creations is a giant replica of Stevie Ray Vaughn’s Stratocaster.
Retired coach and former Abilene Christian University football star, Trent Lancaster, has also sung tenor in a barbershop quartet, “The Local Yokels.” He is the group’s principal guitarist and sings lead on the beautiful melodies of Roy Orbison and The Platters.
Robbis Storm, at 73 and oldest of the Elderly Brothers, plays keyboard, guitar, and blues harmonica. Retired from 42 years in the hamburger business; he loves Elvis and Chuck Berry, as well as, bluesy artists like Jimmy Reed and Sam Cooke.

Friends, this was a fantastic show with Ricky and Darrell Boen (father and son) and Teresa Garner. Ricky showed us why he was recruited to play with the Sons of the Pioneers for eight (8) years. The show included some humor and audience laughter throughout the performance. The talent of all three performers shines through as they sang and played for the audience. Ricky’s fiddle playing style would catch the attention of any musician and non-musician. Each one of these musicians not only played an instrument but showed their singing talent. Go to our Facebook page or website to see videos from the show.
All three, Ricky Boen, Darrell Boen, and Teresa Garner were inducted into the Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame on stage that night.
Each performer was presented with a Framed Certificate of induction into the Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame.
A Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame Plaque showing the Harvest Ranch Wranglers induction was presented, as well as, a Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame Trophy.
Again, thanks to the GCM Hall of Fame house band and our technical staff for their part in producing the show. Our band members were Louie Lee (lead guitar), Matlyn Webb (keyboard/vocals), Roger Vierse (MC/guitar), George Allison (bass guitar/acoustic guitar/vocals), John Nickell (rhythm guitar/vocals), Mike Prosser (drums), and Lynn Webb (sound technician).
