The Radio Wranglers hail from Wisconsin and are heavily influenced by the sounds of the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s with influences ranging from Country and Western, Western Swing, and Honky Tonk. The band has had the pleasure of playing at Opryland in Nashville, and opening for such acts as Wayne Hancock and Carolyn Martin’s Western Swing Band. They strive to encapsulate the sounds of traditional 1940’s and 50’s Country and Western music, while adding their own tunes to the long lasting tradition they so greatly admire. From Waltzes to Boogies, hot swing to high and lonesome blues, you do not want to miss this band’s unique blend of true American music!
Drawing influences from such artists as Bob Wills, Ernest Tubb, Milton Brown, Jack Gurhrie, Tex Williams, Webb Pierce, Hank Thompson, and Hank Williams, The Radio Wranglers also write original music with a taste of the past. Fronted by the twin fiddle team of Blaine And Ruthie McQuinn on fiddle and vocals, The Radio Wranglers are Danny Tyksinski on lead guitar, and Ed Novak on rhythm guitar, and Peyton Lencho on doghouse bass.
The Radio Wranglers have had the good fortune of playing the Nashville Boogie for two consecutive years, including being the band for the Western Wear Fashion show! And in November 2015, they were nominated for an Ameripolitan Award for Western Swing group.
