Ramona the Band
A light version of Ramona the Band, Ramona the Trio is St. Augustine’s number one cover song ensemble. A coming together of hip-hop, rhythm and blues, funk, pop, rock, and soul, Ramona the Trio is a musical treasure trove of long lost one-hit-wonders and modern contemporary favorites. Ramona the Trio consists of front-woman and lead singer Jeanetta Salyer, guitarist A.J. Cobello, and saxophonist Chris Kearnes, each member bringing their individual styles into the mix to create a one-of-a-kind sound. This widely loved trio has gained traction in the southeast for the past three years, stretching the boundaries of genre, collaboration, and reinvention.
Guitarist A.J. has a percussive and vibrant style of playing, creating a loop in which the guitar sounds like a drum while building momentum rhythmically throughout the songs. Chris Kearnes adds a tasty flavor of dynamic saxophone and the incomparable Jeanetta Salyer brings it all together with vocal stylings that match that of Aretha Franklin and Amy Winehouse. Ramona the Trio constantly explores the vast playground which is music. An elite ensemble which is sure to pack a punch with each performance, Ramona the Trio is electric, intuitive, and downright astounding.
