Join us for Episode 3 of DownBeat Denver, as Roma Ransom takes us on a musical journey. Inspired by the likes of Django Reinhardt, Roma Ransom is bringing a totally fresh and unique take on traditional “Jazz Manouche” or “Gyspy Jazz”. Grace and Gordon share a wonderful history and musical chemistry together. They speak a common language as they communicate through their eyes, body, and instruments. Sit back, relax, and enjoy Roma Ransom live on DownBeat Denver!
A word from the band… Roma Ransom began as a musical group after Grace and Gordon began busking on the streets of Springfield, Missouri and shortly after we began dating. Our first gig was at Gem of India where we defined our sound. After a brief stint of gigs we took our act on the road. We relocated to Colorado Springs in 2011 for more musical opportunities and have traveled throughout the US on tour in the past few years. We love music from every culture and we attempt to emulate the sounds of different genres. We play every genre you can imagine, including Country, Pop, R&B, Reggae, Klezmer, Balkan, Classical, Avant Garde, Contemporary, Jazz, Cha-Cha, Rumba, Nepalese/Tibetan, Middle Eastern, Gypsy, Funk, Soul. Our music is best described as eclectic bohemian world psych folk.
