The full band is made up of five members, singer Ranell Carpenter, guitar player Robert Foster, keyboard player Gary Bennett, bass guitar and drums. Ranell works with some of the greatest musicians in Sacramento including Joe Lev and Ripley Howe on bass guitar as well as Larry Schiavone, Peter Phillis and Jimmy Bagshaw on drums. 


Many venues are not conducive to the full band sound of The Ranell Carpenter Band, so there is a very special combination that plays these venues.  The acoustic setup consists of Ranell Carpenter and her very good friend and guitar player Robert Foster.  The blues and jazz sound of the acoustic setup is smooth and easy listening.  You will enjoy their arrangements and sound.
