The Rhythm Rangers
Often referred to as America’s jukebox, The Rhythm Rangers is a seven piece band that covers the range of American roots music. Drawing from the great American traditions of blues, rock, country, and western swing, they cover all the bases. In other words, Americana! From infectious dance-your-butt-off grooves to soulful, heart-rending ballads The Rhythm Rangers deliver!

Part of the success of the band is due to the many years experience of the band members. They are bay area music veterans who’ve all played in many bands and logged thousands of hours in the studio, doing live gigs and touring. Their first CD,"Not Out of the Woods Yet", was released in July 2008, & features versions of songs by Johnny Cash, Bob Wills, Jon Randall, Tim O'Brien & others. Though they didn’t win this CD was nominated for a Grammy in 2008.

In August 2016 The Rhythm Rangers were awarded the Best Americana Band by the North Bay Music Awards.
