Motor City Wranglers (MCW) are a Metro-Detroit based country/rock cover band that was the brainchild of Julie Burry Mueller. "I envisioned a band that played everything from classic rock to standards to ballads to country music (because country music is the new rock n' roll and it is true music)." Julie was looking for musicians that share her love for the same kind of music and want to hone their craft.
MCW has had many talented musicians as part of the line up which has made the repertoire large and growing according to the audience requests.
MCW enjoy tailoring their act from Rock n' Roll clubs, Classic Rock venues, County Fairs, Private Parties, Weddings, and other occasions. We do it all from subdued to as powerful as you want it. Our specialty is doing high power music at low volume levels. You can have exciting entertainment without the interference of the mood.
The Wranglers are dedicated to the music and feel everyone in the band have their own special talent to bring to the table. They continue to polish their set list and add new material whenever possible. The band puts a new twist on old songs and energizes new hits. They are "The Edge of Country"

Scott is a seasoned guitar player with a huge repertoire of music. You name it and he can probably play it. His ability to learn songs is unmatched. Scott enjoys doo wop music from the 50's & 60's and loves to come up with new harmony's for songs. Scott has played with several other local musicians and enjoys also playing solo. With his great sense of humor you can always bet on some great jokes and impressions from him during rehearsal.
Gary Wilkinson - Bass & Vocals
Gary comes to us with an impressive back ground under his belt. He plays with several local praise bands and for local schools during talent shows and annual concerts. (So that's why he may look familiar to many of you.) Gary says he loves to play his bass guitar and any chance he gets to play is a chance he'll take. He is a great story teller and with his dry humor can have you rolling on the floor with laughter. Gary's vast experience helps compliment the Wranglers and move us forward.
Jeff Bush - Drums
Jeff is a multi talented musician, he not only plays drums, but also guitar and bass. Music is his passion and loves to play for a crowd. His quiet unassuming personalty comes alive during live shows. Jeff has been a part of many bands in different genres, but his love of country music led him to the Wranglers, and adding in the rock songs made it even better.
