Miss Mary Ann & The Ragtime Wrangles - Mad Mama

Solo album by Mary Ann - she is known from the well known dutch vocal duet "The Ranch Girls". In the early nineties Mary Ann was playing in a band "The Greyhounds" with Joe Sixpack on guitar and Sietse (now both members of the Ragtime Wranglers). After eight years being a 'Ranch Girl' Mary Ann decided -besides the Ranch Girls- to start a solo career. Miss Mary Ann is founder of the vocal duet "The Ranch Girls" from Rotterdam NL, who need no further introduction. After having played all over the world with the latter for the last 10 years, she has recently been successfully touring with her solo act as well.
A different act, less Western flavoured, more in the rockabilly tradition. A solo EP and "Mad Mama", her solo CD, have been issued on Goofin’ Records from Finland and new recordings are being made. She played major festivals like the "Rockabilly Rave" in the UK and the "Oneida’s Rockin’ Fifties Fest" in Wisconsin USA early this year 2002. Mad Mama is living in London but she still relies on her faithful backing band from Rotterdam "The Ragtime Wranglers": Joe Sixpack on guitar; Sexy Sietse on drums and Huey Moore on double-bass; musicians who have also been the favourite accompanists of no-one less than: Sid King, Hardrock Gunter, Curtis Gordon, the Collins Kids and many more . . . . . . Besides obscure forties and fifties material she alway sings many songs of her own, with her special characteristic style, sweet and mellow to loud and rocking. Each set is interchanged with some crazy, wild instumentals peppered with tape-echoes, temple blocks and peculiarities.
The band, dressed in vintage fezzed, glittering Shriner costumes, rocks on . . . . . until the break of day !
