January 24, 2017 12:55
Alabama-based folk rock band Winston Ramble is gearing up for an exciting, multi-week "Ramble On The Road Tour" from late January through mid February. Things kick off in at Warehouse 414 in Sheffield (AL), and continue with the band's debut performances in St. Louis (1/28) and a handful of debut performances scattered across Colorado and Texas (1/29 - 2/10). The tour will conclude with a highly anticipated hometown show at Birmingham's WorkPlay Theatre with Atlanta funk outfit Voodoo Visionary. The WorkPlay show will be presented by CukoRakko Music & Arts Festival and Live & Listen. See below for a complete list of tour dates and make sure to follow the band's official Facebook page for all of the latest updates.
Winston Ramble describes their music as homegrown folk n’ roll. With members originally hailing from the free state of Winston County, AL, the band aims to interject the raw expression of rock n’ roll into the feel good vibes of acoustic music.
Ben Benefield’s vocals are soulful yet gritty. Combine that with some mandolin twang and church-like 4 part harmonies, and you are left feeling like you are listening to a mix between a southern rock band and a gospel bluegrass quartet. Yet, the harmony driven tunes carry a funky, sometimes psychedelic, but ultimately, an undeniable rock n’ roll vibe.
“At the end of the day, we want people to have a good time when they hear our music. We want it to make you smile, sing along, nod your head, stomp your feet, or get down and groove – and that’s because we feel that way about the music we play, and we love playing it. That attitude and energy is contagious, and hard to resist.”
