Tale of Th'Tones"...

In 1979, things were changing. bands come together, bands break up. But friends will always get together to share a song or two. A local combo in the '70s-The Radio Rangers had broken up and the members went in different directions. Bass-player- Johnny Hanson had gotten married, bought a big house in The Powderhorn and rented the first floor to former Ranger guitarist- Al Butler...one evening, Al invited Johnny to join him in a friendly living-room jam with another guitarist- Steve Henry. Dang-it! It sounded good! "There might be a band in here, maybe". So they quickly recruited two more ex-Rangers- Drummer Dehl Gallagher and Harp-player Billy Smith...THE RANCHTONES were born...They cobbled together a basic P.A., played a few gigs...played a few more...and more and folks were digging on that rockin' kickin' good-time Country music!...

Everyone sang and played with spirit. Life was good...But things were changing. And- as is the case with most bands, after a time- The Ranchtones all went in different directions. OK...Over the years, The band "survived" in different versions, different friends & pickers came & went. The Original Quintet remains THE classic "Ranchtone-Sound"...

The quintet does get together every so often to play the old songs again and have a swell time with good friends. Join us for our Fortieth Anniversary at The Hook & Ladder Theater & Lounge on Friday August 23rd for a big helping of that Country Groove!...
