Welcome to "The Dakota Ramblers Band" Website

                                     "This site is dedicated to our fans, friends and families"

The Dakota Ramblers originated in South Dakota in 1945 . Part of the band moved to Minnesota in 1956, while the remainder chose to stay in South Dakota....theoretically producing two bands going by the Dakota Ramblers name....one in Minnesota and the original in South Dakota. Yes, we know...sort of confusing and "REALLY?"  at the same time.

The Dakota Ramblers Band continues to fill dance halls  and dance floors with true Honky Tonkin', real Country Music......the way it used to be done ....just Real Country.
We thank all past, former members of this band for their contributions along the way . This band has evolved thru many changes over the years in  personnel, show format and business operations.

Thank you for visiting our website. Please feel free to leave comments or questions or drop us a line via email or a phone call. Thanks to all of you  who have been supporting and following this little band for all of these years, and thanks to all of you new Dakota Ramblers followers....we appreciate each and every one of you! Don't forget to check out our videos on YouTube . We'll see you at our next show!

We would like to thank Tom Goetzinger and KCHK  Radio for having Bruce and Mike, along with former Ramblers Mark Ballard and Kevin Adamek on KCHK's Live Music Friday show, Friday, April 29, 2016. From the emails and phone calls we received, it seems there were quite a few of you folks listening. Thank you for getting up so early to listen to us. It was so much fun, and they even fed us a delicious, big Breakfast! Thanks again to Tom, all the KCHK Staff and all you fans, friends and folks!

A sad note to pass along to all you folks....in the passing of Branson area Country Music Artist and Songwriter, Lance Griffith. We send out our condolences to Lance's family, his band, The Midnite Prairie Band and his many friends and fans in Country Music.
