Winston Ramble

Based in Birmingham, Alabama, Winston Ramble is a homegrown, acoustic, folk-rock band. With members originally hailing from the free state of Winston County, AL, the band aims to interject the raw expression of rock n’ roll into the feel-good vibes of acoustic music.

The sound of an old southern soul hits you right out of the gate. Drew “Ben” Benefield’ s vocals are soulful and still gritty. Combine that with some mandolin twang and church-like harmonies and you’ll probably be left feeling like you’re listening to a mix between a classic rock band and a gospel bluegrass quartet. Yet, the acoustically driven tunes carry a funky, sometimes psychedelic, but ultimately, an undeniable rock n’ roll vibe.

“At the end of the day, we want people to have a good time when they hear our music. We want it to make you smile, sing along, nod your head, stomp your feet, or get down and groove. And that’s because we feel that way about the music we play, and we love playing it. That attitude and energy is contagious, and hard to resist.” -Justin Oliver, mandolin/vocals

Fronted by Benefield and Oliver, Winston Ramble performs both as a stripped down acoustic band and as a full acoustic/electric 5-piece band, allowing them to be versatile enough to play a wide variety of venues. The band easily picks up the vibe and feels at home playing at weddings, concerts, restaurants, breweries, art exhibits, pubs, festivals, fraternity parties, or dive bars.
