Rhino & The Ranters play a full-bodied, flavourful maelstrom of CowPunk/Gospel/Blues, with a raucous live set full of original compositions. The Ranters have consolidated their position as one of Birmingham’s most highly regarded live acts!
Last year saw the release of a new EP “Half Quixote” which has been well received, picking up some rave reviews and radio plays.
New guitarist Andy Pell has been recruited to join frontman Ryan Webb (voice, guitar, banjo, harmonica) alongside some of the city’s finest musicians. Mandolin virtuoso Loz Kingsley and sticksman Pete Hammond (formerly of the Au Pairs) signed up in 2014 and were soon joined by Richard March (ex Pop will Eat Itself and Bentley Rhythm Ace) on stand up bass, completing the current line up.
Ryan’s energetic and charismatic performances are complemented perfectly by Loz’s inventive and melodic playing and one of the most experienced rhythm sections in town. From 50s style ballads, through swampy blues to pumped up rockers, Rhino and the Ranters are guaranteed to get the crowd moving and the temperature rising.
