• Rant 'n' Rave
  • RANT 'N' RAVE are a four-piece covers and Americana band based in Essex. They’ve been playing all styles of music together live for a good many years and in early 2010 they released their first CD of self penned songs called Americana Shakedown.

    Rant ‘n’ Rave are a four-piece band with five members! Generally speaking, only one lead/rhythm guitarist plays at any one time. The line-up is:

    Doug Brown – Lead vocals and acoustic guitar
    Sandra Brown – keyboards and backing vocals
    Kieran Carrigan – lead/rhythm guitars
    Stuart Anderson – lead/rhythm guitars
    Ron Bennett – drums and percussion

    In 2020, Rant 'n' Rave released the two-volume collection "Expect The Unexpected". Each of the two CDs is comprised of 14 original songs.

    The band hasn't limited itself to just country music and rock ‘n’ roll this time but cover many different styles, paying homage to the musical styles and musicians that have inspired them over the years – hence the titles. Both albums feature guest artists including Hank Wangford, BJ Cole and Andy Roberts.

    Rant 'n' Rave began recording the CDs in 2014 but the band was plagued with health issues and in late 2018, having just finished laying down the last few tracks, their original drummer and long-time close friend Ron Bennett very sadly passed away. As a result, the albums are dedicated to Ron.
