Ruthie & The Wranglers
Ruthie & The Wranglers
Azalea City Recordings’ Artists, Ruthie and the Wranglers, play rockin' American Roots music (also known as FUN!) After 25 Years of Wrangler twang, including touring, radio airplay, and releasing six albums, the band remains a cornerstone of the DC roots music scene. From original Americana Country to rousing Surf instrumentals, their clever lyrics, high energy and spritely hillbilly harmonies set them apart from the rest. The band has released 6 CDs, most recently, “Ruthie and the Wranglers LIVE at Goose Creek” Their 5-piece includes guitars, piano, bass and drums, and sometimes steel and mandolin—showcasing their dynamic three part harmonies and original songs.

Ruthie and The Wranglers’ albums have ranked high on Americana, Folk and Roots music radio charts around the world. Their clever songwriting skills were penned by Billboard Magazine as “...nothing short of brilliant.” Dirty Linen, No Depression and The Washington Post raved about their previous CD “Americana Express.”

"Surftilicus" shows off guitarist Andy Rutherford and the tune, being standout at live shows, made it a must to include on the LIVE CD. Pianist Bill Starks adds his timely sing-along anthem about staying “one step ahead of the Repo Man” and a lonesome love song “300 Miles to Memphis” (garnered a WAMMIE for Song of the Year) and Ruthie’s “Ka-Ching” ribs you with it’s tongue and cheek delivery about one way to get rich off of a rocky relationship. Goose Creek's recording prowess and stage production have captured the raw energy and excitement that only a live show can foster. A well-balanced variety of original tracks featuring all 3 songwriters and vocalists make for a fantastic one-stop listening experience for Wrangler fans. The CD also includes a rousing version of (Ruthie's hero) Loretta Lynn's "You Wanna Give Me a Lift" and a rock 'em sock 'em do over of "I Got a Rocket in My Pocket" made famous by NRBQ and Johnny Horton—penned by Ruthie's 3rd cousin Jimmie Logsdon.

Band line up is Ruthie Logsdon - vocals and acoustic guitar, Andy Rutherford - lead guitar and steel guitar, Bill Starks - piano and vocals, Jim Robeson - bass and Tom Fridrich - drums and sometimes mandolin.

Awards: Ruthie and the Wranglers have been awarded more than 30 Washington Area Music Awards including Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Someday, Song of the Year and they have reached emeritus status.

If you're not having fun at a Ruthie and the Wranglers show, you'd better check your pulse!

Favorite Fan Quote: "I don't even like country music but I loooove Ruthie and the Wranglers!"
Tony Denikos
Tony Denikos
Tony Denikos (pronounced "deny-kiss”) performs Americana Roots Rock and Blues!
He writes, records and performs some of the most refreshingly down-home Americana music in the Baltimore/Washington region. A native of Laurel, MD, he has been influenced by artists such as John Fogerty, Lowell George, John Prine, Graham Parker and Richard Thompson.

His song “Tip of My Tongue” was the Grand Prize Winner in the Mid Atlantic Song Contest. A well loved songwriter that thoroughly engages his audience—his songs will stay with you long after the lights fade to black.

"Tony Denikos' songwriting is filled with emotion and romanticism, moving from social commentary to small portraits of American life.... A good example of modern Americana and songwriting of noble birth.” –Fabio Cerbone, -Italy

" a sponge Tony absorbs all the (Americana) influences and then wrings out something entirely his own” –Benny Metten. - Belgium

"Tony Denikos has garnered so much praise and reviews that I wasn't left with hardly any adjectives for my own review. …There's a warmth and natural soulfulness to this sound that is as much approachable as it is admirable…. Next time I sit beside Prine at Arnold's Meat & Three, I am going to hip him to the fact that I know who is going to fill his shoes when he retires.” –Gary Allen (JJ Cale/The Charlie Daniels Band/Stonewall Jackson)
