“The Sons of Ralph (featuring Ralph) is a band that plays music ranging from bluegrass to country, to rock and back! The Band's frontman, Ralph Lewis (mandolin, guitar, vocals) started out playing "mountain music" in the 1940's. From there he has had many groups including, The Lewis Brothers, The Carolina Pals, and The Piney Mountain Boys. In 1974 he got a call to join Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys, where he stayed for two years. Seeing his own "boys" wish to play music, he quit Monroe's group to pick with his sons. Marty (guitar, dobro, keyboard, vocals) and Don (fiddle, banjer, guitar, harmonica, and vocals). Sons of Ralph now include "Cousin" Steve Moseley (vocals, harmony vocals, bass, acoustic, and electric guitars), and "Brother Oz" Ozzie Orengo Jr. (percussion) to round out the "Best Band in Western NC". (Sons of Ralph has been awarded this honor ten of the last twelve years, including 2009!)”
