Lay-Down Ramblers Press kit
The Lay-Down Ramblers are a Chicago-based five-piece progressive Electric blues band (2 guitars, drums, bass, vocals/harmonica) , with some pop, rock, and country thrown in. The Ramblers formed in the Fall of 2018 after crossing paths at Chicago's famous Old Town School of Folk Music, , the members have long performance histories that include many Chicagoland bands over the years, as well as national and international tours. Richard P. Bennett, who fronts the band, has sung at venues such as the Kennedy Center Opera House, Lincoln Center, and on and Off-Broadway, and the band was thrilled to be asked to perform at the Hillberry Music Festival in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, in 2019. The Ramblers put their own spin on some classic songs and have a few cool originals they like to share, too. The Lay-Down Ramblers goal is to make sure everyone in the venue has as much fun as possible.
