Brought together by a mutual love of all things rock 'n' roll, The Ronelles formed in Spring 2004 and have been causing a stir on the live Glasgow music scene ever since. They are: Raymond Meade (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Daniel Meade (Guitar,Backing Vocals), John Dougan (Bass) and David Toohill (Drums).
Wearing their influences proudly on their sleeves, it sounds like The Ronelles spent most of their childhood days pinching records from their parents' collections. Few bands these days would name-drop Robert Johnson, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry among their biggest influences, and while more might mention The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and The Jam, few put these influences to as good use as The Ronelles.
Solid tunes and flawless musicianship set The Ronelles apart from the current influx of rock 'n' roll wannabes, and while style is undoubtedly important to the regularly leather-clad and suitably retro-barnetted Ronelles, their stunning tunes and tight live performances prove they are anything but another bunch of bandwagon-jumping trendies.
