South of Ramona
wing inspiration from punk, psychedelic, pop, and traditional Romani music. It is the seamless mixture and execution of these styles that produce South of Ramona’s signature sound.
The band features Keith Araneo (banjo), Michael “Thom” Brown (drums), Richard Dean (vocals/bass), and Eric Lo (guitar). Simple layering is the key. Lively yet controlled rhythms form the backdrop for powerful and melodic guitar licks. The deconstructed bluegrass and lead-guitar-style solos from the banjo follow a crooning weathered voice creating rock and roll steeped in American folk sensibilities.
