The instrumental group known as "The Ramrods" first took form in 1956 as a sort of family affair. Brother and sister, Richard and Claire Lane teamed up with cousin Eugene Mooro and Vincent B. Lee to form the group. They played around their local area in Connecticut at record hops and club dates until one of their disks came to the attention of Amy Records.
They were immediately signed by the diskery, and their waxing of "Ghost Riders In The Sky" is advancing on the "Hot 100."
Richard Lane is tenor sax; Claire Lane, drums; Mooro and Lee play guitar. Claire Lane also writes all their arrangements.
