Ted Z and the Wranglers, of Southern California, deliver outlaw country-charged rock. Ted's catchy story-songs are fully-realized tales of love, regret, getting older, and getting in trouble. The band stirs up its Americana influences, featuring quick picking and bluesy slide guitar over galloping train beats and swinging shuffles.
The Wranglers are Dan Mages (bass), Jackson Leverone (lead and slide guitar, vocals), and Harrison Moore (banjo, pedal steel, keys, mandolin, vocals) and Johnny Bluesky (Drums). The band has honed its sound on big stages and in biker bars alike. They get audiences dancing and bring them back for more.
Ted Z and The Wranglers were signed to Rip Cat Records in 2015. Their first label release, Ghost Train, was recorded at Yellow Dog Studios in Wimberley, TX and produced by Monty Byrom (Big House, Eddie Money).
