Based in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, their lively sound features everything from fiddle, guitar, banjo and mandolin to harmonica, trombone, bass and drums. Band members Doug Tanner and Terry Reed have a local connection, too, hailing from Orange "Friendly Town" MA.
Besides many vocal numbers, their instrumentation includes fiddle, chromatic and blues harmonica, guitar, 4-string banjo, trombone, electric mandolin, bass and drums. They have appeared multiple times at Northampton's Iron Horse Music Hall, many festivals, fairs and cruises -- primarily in New England -- but also in Quebec, Alberta, and British Columbia. In addition to producing four CD's, all of which have sold out of their original pressings, in the early part of the century the Wranglers were voted "Favorite Swing Band" by the readers of the Valley Advocate newspaper for 6 years in a row & until the Advocate asked them to retire from the competition! A local musical treasure, they've been playing brunch at the Black Sheep Deli in Amherst nearly every Sunday morning for almost 20 years!
