SARA GEE & RAMBLIN MATT - ENGLISH PRESENTATION
Hello dear friends, let us introduce ourselves, we are a music band called Sara Gee & Ramblin Matt and we perform as a duet with a line up of one acoustic guitar, one lead guitar (Lap Style Slide Dobro in some songs), electric or double bass and the main vocals by Sara with backing vocals by Matt. We also can perform with a rhythm section of double bass and stand up drums if necessary.
Our style fits into Americana although our influences are much broader, from early XXth Century Delta Blues to Sun Records Rockabilly, Country & Western, Folk and Southern Rock. We write our own compositions, record our songs and sing our performances exclusively in English. Our music is always very welcomed by British, American, Dutch and generally, English speaking audiences and we can play with PA systems or strictly acoustic with any amplification at all.
Sara Gee & Ramblin Matt were formed in June 2013 when they first met in Valencia and ever since have performed over 200 gigs and published three long play CD's and feature in two compilations, also their music is played regularly in several radio stations and have been interviewed by media and press both from Spain and international.
Sara Gee & Ramblin Matt are declared lovers of the classic sounds of the 1920s to the 50s and even some 60s with a dynamic line up of musicians with a long and solid career in American Roots Music distilling old school Blues, Country and Rock n Roll writing our own new compositions that we alternate with covers of Robert Johnson, Bessie Smith, Howlin Wolf, Bob Dylan, Wanda Jackson, Ida Cox, Delbert McClinton, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams or Janis Joplin to mention a few in our live shows.
Sara and Matt have been backed up in the past for live shows and recordings by a rhythm section of a double bass and stand up drummer formed by respected and experienced musicians of the busy and thriving local scene of Valencia, ex members at one point or another of bands such as Incorregibles, Rock N Bordes, Renegados, Blackmailers or The Danny Boy & Ramblin Matt Blues Revue to mention a few. Currently ther are being backed up on Electric Fender Precission and Fretless Bass by very talented musician Pepe Calle who has brought a fresh and solid groove to the live sets of the duet. Ocasionally they play shows as a quartet with dear friends and excellent musicians Isidro Cintas at the Double Bass and Nuria LaCruz at the snare drum and maraccas.
