Meet the Band
From the first note to the last encore, the energy and intensity of SLAMABAMA will have your undivided attention. Made up of four of the most accomplished singer/instrumentalists in the Midwest, they are capable of delivering everything from the biggest country hits to the most driving rock classics. Individually, the band member bios of SLAMABAMA read like that of an industry dream team. Vocalist / Lead Guitarist J Juliano has performed shows throughout the Southeast and Midwest for thousands of enthusiastic fans. He has shared the stage with many award-winning artists such as Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Diamond Rio, Sawyer Brown, and a host of others. A published writer in Nashville, J has been bestowed the honors of both the Italian American Community of Chicago's 'David Award' for Music along with the coveted 'Best of Rockford' Platinum Award. In 2007, Juliano was awarded the honor of 'Best New Country Artist' in the Midwest and earned a spot at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville Tennessee as one of 5 artists out of over 60,000 from around the USA in the 25th Annual Colgate Country Showdown. Vocalist Rosanna Carroll has performed alongside J Juliano both in 'family friendly' concerts with the band 'Little Nashville' as well as with SLAMABAMA. Rosanna, born in San Diego but raised in Kentucky cites influences from Linda Rondstadt to Loretta Lynn. She spent 16 years in the Nashville music scene, sharing the stage with such industry greats as Jo Dee Messina and Tracey Lawrence. She also headlined several shows, including 'Live at Libby's' (a weekly country music radio broadcast) and the Nashville Palace. Bassist / Vocalist Dennis Gilpatrick's background is a perfect example of that of the most accomplished musician. A master of his instrument, Dennis is one of the most versatile bassists in the industry. His work has appeared on instructional audio that accompanied the book 'Jazz Guitar Lines', written by Miami-Dade Professor Dan 'Lucky' Elden and released by Warner Bros. Dennis' rock background found him on stage opening for legendary acts such as Great White, L.A. Guns, Sebastian Bach and Ace Frehley. Dennis has also performed shows with country greats Confederate Railroad and the Kentucky Headhunters. Drummer Daniel Rangel is prepared to go wherever his drums take him. Through his teen years Daniel would go on to play with many bands recording his first CD at age 16. When he turned 21, Daniel really began to catch the eyes and ears of local musicians by playing at jams. He was able to join a band he had looked up to since he was little, called The Amigos, which would later become the band Smooth Groove. Over the next couple of years Daniel would go on to record more cds and reach his goal to play in a band with every local musician he was inspired by. Daniel has managed to play all styles that have been put before him, including country, latin, rock, blues, funk and R&B. He's performed with bands that have won the 2005 and 2006 Iowa Blues Challenge and has competed in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. Take all of those ingredients, and you have a group whose shows will leave you breathless, whose musicianship will leave you in awe and whose energy will leave you feeling SLAMMED!! Fun, FUN band!
