The Midnight Ramble
Posted on: Tuesday, Aug 26, 2014
This morning I have been enjoying the band The Midnight Ramble.
Formed in October 2010 by singer/songwriter Paul Dunbar the 6-piece soul/rock/blues outfit is an award-nominated (‘Album of the Year’, Liverpool Music Awards 2012) and critically-acclaimed outfit from Liverpool, UK.
The band has featured on BBC Introducing, had consistent radio plays nationally and internationally, had tracks such as ‘Lions’ and ‘Black Dirt’ (taken from Sink The Pieces, 2012) featured in UK feature films and US documentaries and has performed with Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, James Taylor Quartet, Big Country, BLEECH and Phantom Limb to name a few.
Having performed to consistent sell-out audiences on their own headline shows, The Midnight Ramble has gained a reputation as a highly energetic, original and powerhouse of a live act.
“I was blown away by The Midnight Ramble…a band that for me was the find of the festival…Paul Dunbar (singer/songwriter) is not only an assured singer of songs but he can write a mean lyric, he has the soul of a poet”
