The Raglanders are a 5-piece group from Green Bay, Wisconsin who blur the lines between Rock and Country with a uniquely Midwestern take. They draw on traditional influences like Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and The Band along with newer voices such as Ryan Adams and Jason Isbell.
The Raglanders current lineup includes founding members Troy Heinz (rhythm guitar, vocals), John Steuck (lead guitar, vocals) and Andy Cismoski (bass, vocals), as well as fiddle player Molly Robinson and drummer Jeff Just. The band’s sound is clearly based first and foremost in the classic storytelling tradition, but their instrumental prowess can elevate improvisational passages to exciting new levels at any given moment.
The Raglanders have been steadily building a fan base, appearing at festivals around Wisconsin including Mile of Music, the Steel Bridge Song Fest, Electric City Experience, and Moondance Festival. In 2018 the band was nominated for a WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) award for Bluegrass/Americana Artist.
