The group's name comes from the Sonoramic Commando Plymouth engine used in 1960 and 1961. The inspiration was the emblem on mutual friend Robert Engel's '61 model. It just had a nice ring to it.
Sonoramic's mix of original material and covers in the style of old country, bluegrass, rockabilly, and instrumentals has been hard to nail down. One astute crowd member called it Y'Allternative music. Whatever you want to label it, or better yet don't, the group has a sound all its own. With all members singing and harmonizing, they certainly are incomparable.
A stripped-down, old school approach has always been the band's trademark. The rhythm of Rodney's upright combined with Matt's drums creates a tight, full sound in the tradition of early Rock and Honky Tonk recordings. Chad's electric guitar rounds out the Sonoramic crusade. The result is a purity of style that is seldom heard and that you won't soon forget!
