Considered one of the top Western groups in the country, the Diamond W Wranglers make their musical home at the Old Cowtown Museum in Wichita, which is an authentic Western town of the 1870’s. There they operate the Diamond W Chuckwagon, and entertain thousands of people a year with their stunning musical harmonies, great showmanship, and quirky humor.

The music they perform is a combination of traditional Western music that pays homage to the Sons of the Pioneers and other Western greats, and their New West originals, like “Deep In the Saddle”. That song, written by the group’s arranger Jim Farrell, was the title song of the album that received the Will Rogers Award for “Western Music Album of the Year” from the Academy of Western Artists in 2008.

Known as the Prairie Rose Wranglers from 1999-¬2007, the group has promoted Western Music across the globe. They were the first musicians from the western hemisphere to perform cowboy music in China, and indeed were the first musicians to have a concert ON the Great Wall of China. They also led a troupe of Western entertainers to Carnegie Hall in New York in both 2003 and 2004, and sold it out twice. They have headlined 4 Cowboy Cruises in the Caribbean, and have performed recently in both Nashville and Branson, as well as making regular visits to venues around Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Colorado. In September of 2010 they traveled to as part of a tourism promotional mission for the states of Kansas and Oklahoma.

The Wranglers are available for concert and venue bookings January through April and September through October.
