"In addition to great bluegrass musicianship, Pennsylvania's colorful Remington Ryde knows something about ENTERTAINING! A session with them evokes the fun audiences had with the likes of Don Reno & Red Smiley...." - Bill Knowlton


"One of the most entertaining bands in the bluegrass circuit today. They stay true to traditional bluegrass as well." - Evan Carl


Remington Ryde was formed in late 2002 for the purpose of promoting bluegrass music in Pennsylvania. They have released five albums and one single. “I'll wait for you” has been played by bluegrass radio stations throughout the country.

Their latest cd “The Ryde” has just been released on Green Valley Records. The band offers superb musicianship, tight harmonies, traditional and contemporary vocals. All of which are are evident on this superb collection.

The majority of the cuts were written by lead vocalist Ryan Frankhouser. The new tunes have such a traditional feel they could have been recorded decades ago. There are several stand outs. “Four Letter Word” is the first cut on the album. It is shows off both the vocal and instumental talents of the band.

“Puddle of Tears” is an upbeat heartbreaking classic that pleads “don't let me lay here in a puddle of tears.”

“Springtime on the Brandywine” is a banjo picking goodtime trip. “Where you gonna Hide” is a gospel tune that sows of the bands four part harmony. “Dizzy” is a fantastic example of mandolin cross picking.

I don't like making comparisons. I prefer to let the music stand on it's own. Regional bands almost require a comparison to let you know what you are getting into. This collection reminds very much of the original Country Gentleman. If you enjoy them you will like this cd.

Over all this is a more than enjoyable “Ryde.”

They have released four full length albums and one single, “I’ll Wait for You,” that has been played by bluegrass radio stations throughout the country including Sirius Bluegrass. They have successfully hosted the 3rd Annual Remington Ryde Bluegrass Festival and announced the date for the 4th festival on July 16-18, 2010 in Reedsville, Pennsylvania.

Remington Ryde released their first professional project in 2007, produced by Green Valley Records in Hughesville, Pennsylvania.
