The dynamic team of Ramona Quimby and Alberto Cebollero perform together as a duo, presenting song arrangements that suit his extraordinary proficiency on the guitar and her powerful vocals.
Their duo performances offer R&B, jazz, and Latin numbers with the same intensity and energy found in shows featuring the entire Ramona the Band. As a duo, their energy is barely contained, and the flow from vocals to lead guitar and improvisation is seamless.
Raised in the central Florida music town of Mt. Dora, the woman who performs as Ramona knew when she was very young that she was a singer, and she's not veered from that path. Now an international recording artist, Ramona has won several awards and performed throughout the country.
Multi-instrumentalist Alberto Cebollero is a composer, arranger, and one of the premier guitarists in the southeastern U.S. His talent has long been known by those familiar with both R&B and Hip Hop musicians. More recently, he has focused on playing jazz and often appears with one or two other jazz instrumentalists and as a duo with his partner, Ramona. Born in Camden, New Jersey, Alberto has a background in classical composition and in jazz improvisation.
As a duo, Ramona and Alberto perform genre-fluid sets that can include the music of Amy Winehouse as well as older jazz standards and any music in between.
