Ted Z and the Wranglers, of Southern California, deliver heartfelt ballads and gritty grassroots rock ‘n’ roll with a cowboy kick. Their folky story-telling songs convey themes of love, politics, environmentalism, childhood imagination, and the rawness of humanity. The concept came to Ted Zakka (lead singer, guitarist) in a burst of songwriting. Ted called upon old friends Mike Layton (guitar, harmonica) and Professor Dan Mages (bass), and enlisted Mike Myers (drums, harmony vocals) to complete the new group. Layton shares lead guitar duties for The Wranglers with the newest addition, Guitar Center blues competition titleholder Jackson Leverone. Together, these players meld Southwestern romanticism, cultural awareness, and rollicking good times to get audiences dancing and leave them hungry for more.
One dark and stormy night, the winds howled and screamed In the absence of light. Only a single star gleamed. The caravan navigated the sands as a ship, horses driven by the crack of a whip. Violent strums made stringed instruments twang, women whaled and tambourines sang. Thunder and lightning, fire and ice, the desert wept paying the ultimate price. There beneath the circling crows, sat the new blues queen, little Betty Rose.

Just listen to his music and you hear exerpts fro...m stories from every big city to the smallest and most remote spots on the planet. You kinda get the feeling this is one fella that has "been there, done that and went back for thirds".
He might look like an insurance salesman or a big cowboy from Texas, but he sounds like a New Orleans street musician or one of the members of a flashy gospel group out of Jackson, MS singing "Ain't no storm big enough".
What you see is not what you're gonna get. There is some power in those pipes!
