The Weld County Ramblers formed as a group in the summer of 2013. Jam group friends and bluegrass beginners, we originally got together to play a 45 minute set of Gospel tunes on a Sunday morning for two little Methodist Churches in Weld County ten miles apart. We were to play for one church at 9am and the other at 11am. That morning was a great exercise in coordinated pandemonium.
The name, “Weld County Ramblers,” was an off-the cuff name for a band we expected to last for only one day, but people liked what we did and we started getting requests to play. Playing picnics, a flood relief benefit, street fairs, retirement homes, and even a memorial service helped us to gel as a group. As our repertoire expanded and we started taking the music more seriously, we started playing brewpubs, private parties, and weddings.
Today our music is a collection of classic bluegrass, and “grassified” rock/folk tunes. We organize our musical sets around the audience we expect to play for. Each member of our band is a vocalist and offers a unique dimension to the harmonies we bring to life.
