This quartet hails from Coimbra, Portugal, and are fed with R&B, Soul, Garage, and Gospel fiber. In a few words, a primitive coolness; an absolute rock 'n' roll mutant. Influenced by the likes of Johnny Burnette, ? and the Mysterians, Lee Hazelwood, Booker T and the MG's, The Stooges, The Clash, and The Make-Up, Bunnyranch live are a maximum burst of adrenaline that are capable of matching some of the best live acts stateside. The synergy of the band live begins with Kalo, (ex-Tedio Boys) a frontman, drummer and singer who just might be the captain of Holland's 1974 World Cup soccer team. Furiously animated and seemingly possessed by the music, Kalo makes for a performance that's nothing but riveting. His fiery portrayal of a brutish drummer makes him no stranger to American audiences as he has toured America several times with his previous bands Tedio Boys and 77. He is accompanied by guitarist Andre Ferrao, Joao Cardoso (organ, piano, vocals) and Pedro Calhau on bass, add excitement that makes for a hammer of an experience.
Bunnyranch has most recently completed their first U.S. tour, playing a successful week and a half long stint up and down the East Coast. While in America, the band visited the world reknowed Hed Studios in New York City to record what will become their newest album, due out April of 2008. Working with legendary guitar player Ivan Julian, the band spent their last week in the states working on a record that will be nothing short of amazing.
Currently, Bunnyranch is on a brief hiatus from touring, but will be starting up again in a few months in support of their new album, due out in April.
