Band Members
Radha Romero - Lead Singer John Ranis - Guitar - Vocals Jeff Ray - Keyboards - Vocals

Radha Romero has been studying music her entire life. She grew up in a family where classical training was highly encouraged. With six older brothers all learning an instrument at some point or another there was always music playing in the house! Coming from a long line of classically trained pianists and vocalists, Radha was immediately immersed in operas and stage life even as a small child and learned the implicit skills that go with collaberating musically in a group surrounding. She excelled with violin as a youngster holding the title of first violinist in her school orchestra and earning a full scholarship with San Francisco's Community Music Center Young Musicians Program.

In middle school and high school she found her passion in musical theater. While training in classical voice she was also lead soprano for her high school choir. She fell in love with the musicals of that time such as Cats and Phantom of The Opera. She trained and was a contributing member with Chalis' Opera Ensemble in San Francisco. She was a part of the ensemble for the annual Holiday Concert at Davies Symphony Hall. She later went on to join the Santa Rosa Players for a renditon of A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum as well as other musical projects.

She is thrilled to be playing with The Rock and Roll Rhythm Revue. She feels surrounded by amazing talent and the guys have all been very welcoming, relaxed and knowledgeable. She loves the genre and can't wait to give justice to the amazing rockabilly music of 'that time'.

John started playing guitar at age 4. John is an obsessive compulsive guitar player. He is equally happy in the pocket, grooving behind a good vocalist as he is taking center stage or pulling of a burning solo.

He has played guitar, bass and sang in numerous bands and venues throughout the Bay Area. These bands and musical styles vary greatly from the fire & brimstone rock and blues of The Jody Counter Band, the soul & funk of The CT Cruisers (An 11 piece horn band), the Memphis Soul of Stax City (An 8 piece horn band), to The Teleblasters' Twang & Roll. All roads have led to the Rock and Roll Rhythm Revue.

This band gives John the opportunity to lay down classic guitar lines. That in itself makes him happy.


Emmy award-winning keyboardist/vocalist Jeff Ray started playing classical piano at age 6. By the age of 12, Jeff knew he had the knack for writing Pop-Rock songs. He has been a studio session player for Tres Virgos Studios in Marin County, California. Jeff has worked sessions and shows for such musical greats as Ronnie Montrose, The Tubes, Beau Brummels, Jo Baker, Mickey Hart, Nick Gravenites, Johnny Cola (Huey Lewis and The News), Jimmie Lyons and David Lewark (Eddie Money), Mingo Lewis (Santana) and others.

As a writer and performer, Jeff has been a band member for Dirty Minds, Learning Curve, and Jeff Ray and Friends; playing numerous venues throughout Northern California. Additionally, Jeff has written many television and radio commercials, television theme music, and soundtracks for the Discovery Channel. He is currently working on a recording project of his original songs.

Playing with The Rock and Roll Rhythm Revue is an exciting opportunity for Jeff to expand his musical energy into Old School Rock and Roll, Jump Blue and Rockabilly.

“When I saw Ringo and the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show, I knew that was what I wanted to do! Lots of garage bands in St. Louis! I did shows with Luther Ingram ("If Lovin' You Is Wrong--I Don't Want To Be Right") and Dorothy Moore ("Misty Blue"), then a few years with Billy Peek (Chuck Berry's guitarist in the `60s and Rod Stewart's guitarist from 1975-1980) playing St. Louis bars.

Then after 18 years with `50s and `60s showband--Sh-Boom, I moved to Sonoma County! Fortunately, I met the Poyntlyss Sistars and was their drummer before I joined The Unauthorized Rolling Stones in 2004. In 2008, I was one of the founding members of Twang Ditty and had a great time playing classic country! I also enjoyed my time with CT Cruisers and Hot Karma, and I'm proud to be reunited with John Ranis and Susan Copperman in the Rock & Roll Rhythm Revue!"
