THE ROCKY ROAD RAMBLERS
Jonny and Lynnette have become a winning formula on the country music scene since they combined their solo careers to become a duo back in 2009 and since then have never looked back winning both solo and duo awards.
With their passion and love for traditional country and rockabilly music The Rocky Road Ramblers were formed.
They initially got together for a one off show at Walesby's Golden Buckle festival in the summer of 2017 and from that performance one thing led to another and the band found themselves on the road heading north to the Broken Spoke festival and the rest is history.
The band members are Jonny,who takes lead and harmony vocals and with his Gretsch guitar he adds rhythm and lead guitar work to their sound.
Next up we introduce Lynnette with her double bass named 'Maybelle'. Lynnette takes care of the slappin' and a ' pluckin' of the bass notes and also shares lead and harmony vocals.
The husband and wife team are proud to be joined by Adrian, Lynnette's younger brother, who with his slick lead guitar licks and awesome lap steel playing really brings this band to life.
Last but by no means least sitting pretty on the drums, the girl with rhythm running through her veins we introduce Jonny's daughter Sophie.
Playing country and rockabilly music from legends such as the grandaddy himself Hank Williams and the lively BR549 they also include sweet songs from greats such as Patsy Cline and Wanda Jackson to name just a few.
This family band have a number of bookings in their diaries for 2018, 2019 and 2020 and are thrilled to announce the release of their debut album 'IN THE JAILHOUSE NOW' available at gigs and in the On lIne Store.
In September 2018 the Rocky Road Ramblers earned themselves a nomination for 'Newcomer of the Year' at the CCN Awards which they are very proud of also their debut album has been short listed for the BCMA 'Album of the year' award 2018.
January 2019 sees the band heading over to America to record an album at the ledgendary 'Sun Studios' in Memphis Tennessee, it will be a truly amazing experience for them all. Watch this space for an album release date.
The band would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming response and encouragement they have received since their first performance and can't wait to see everyone on the trail.
