Husband and wife duo Tom and Margaret Coryell have teamed up with Charles Ledbetter and Jim Kopp to form Tom Coryell & The Incorrigibles. They play many styles, including originals written and produced by Tom here and in Seattle.

Tom bought his first guitar at 18 and the rest is history. He is the originator of "Blue-eyed Prairie Soul" and a self-styled blues/jazz guitarist who has taken licks from horn-lines and famous horn players such as Charlie Parker and Miles Davis. Tom's other bands include Wavelength, Red Rabbit, the Coolerators, and The Complete Unknowns.

Margaret was musically influenced by her mother and both grandmothers, who played Chopin, Schubert, Gershwin and Brubeck. She started piano at age 7 and studied with Carolyn Deuel. She met Tom while playing guitar at Casper College, and recently reconnected with that instrument. She also adapts it to the keyboard parts. Influences include Walter Becker, Donald Fagen (Steely Dan) Jay Graydon and Rickie Lee Jones.

Charles Ledbetter, a scholarship recipient, studied music at Casper College, has played music in several bands and his own jazz group, the Charles Ledbetter Trio. Nicknamed "Mr. Grizz," his playing is reminiscent of a full-on groove. Musical influences include Jaco Pastorius and Bootsy Collins.

Jim Kopp has been playing drums since the age of eleven and studied drums for many years through private instruction. He also plays jazz vibraphone. Jim has played in many diverse bands- punk, rock, fusion, jazz, as well as blues and R&B. A full-time artist, his paintings can be found throughout the US, Europe, Canada and Australia.
