No One You Know
No One You Know
You may not recognize their names; Don Anderson, Ramie Bennett, Lance Gainer, Bruce Jones, or Rachel Burge now, but you will remember them after you hear their music. Don Anderson sings lead and plays the bass. He was a longtime band member of "The Anderson Family". Don is the band's premiere songwriter. Currently, he hosts a Bluegrass radio show "On the Road with Don Anderson" on 104.9 WPDX.
The Sunday evening broadcast showcases both professional and local Bluegrass bands. Rachel Burge, the bands "Leading Lady", brings her mandolin expertise and a rock solid chop to "No One You Know." Her lead and harmony vocals help blend the band's intonation into a perfect meld of outstanding tones and pitch. She is a graduate of Glenville State College and holds a degree in Music Education. She also plays with the band "Mountain Fury". Lance Gainer supplies both guitar and vocals to the band as well. His highly polished leads and rhythm are sure to catch your ear in one way or another.
His guitar picking abilities are in a range of their own. Lance has been affiliated with several bands as well, but most recently with "Buck and Company." Ramie Bennett is most recently a member of "Buck and Company", but has been affiliated with other Bluegrass and Gospel bands all over West Virginia. He plays the banjo, and sings both lead and harmony vocals with the band. His "high lonesome lead vocal" cannot be mistaken.
Ramie is a phenomenal multi-instrumentalist and a talented songwriter as well. His style of banjo picking will leave you on the edge of your seat. Mr. Bruce Jones plays the resophonic guitar. Although he plays dobro for the group, he is capable of playing a number of other instruments.
Bruce was also a longtime member of "The Bluegrass Travelers" and "Break Mountain." He is also a member of another Bluegrass band "Whittaker Station." Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
