Known as a maelstrom of cowpunk gospel blues, roots and rockabilly, Rhino & The Ranters are definitely a band that you want to be checking out.
Mixing rockabilly, blue grass and folk, Rhino and the Ranters are an unstoppable explosion of everything that resonates the blues.
Originating from London; the band moved to Birmingham in 2012 and now consist of Ryan Webb, founder, singer songwriter, Pete Hammond, drums and percussion, Loz Kingsley, mandolin and backing vocals, Richard March on bass and Gavin Wray on guitar and backing vocals.
Their music moves from one extreme to the next, containing something for every ear. ‘Radio Joe’ is a rock n’ roll hit, providing grooves and catchy guitar parts alongside strong male vocals. Whilst tracks such as ‘Dr Ink’ brings bluesy riffs into a passionate building finale.
