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. In the span of a few years, Ted Z and the Wranglers have become one of Southern California's most compelling and sought after Americana/Country roots musical collectives.
The Wranglers are Dan Mages (bass), Mike Myers (drums, vocals), and Jackson Leverone (lead and slide guitar, vocals). The band has honed its sound on big stages and in biker bars alike, playing and performing in major festivals and cities throughout the country.
Ted Z and The Wranglers are signed to Rip Cat Records. Their first label release, Ghost Train, was recorded at Yellow Dog Studios in Wimberley, TX and produced by the famed Monty Byrom (Big House, Eddie Money). Ghost Train went on sale October 16th 2015 online and in stores across the nation.
