"If there was a house band playing at the Sons of Anarchy's clubhouse every Tuesday night, the Forest Rangers would be the band," says Bob Thiele. The Rangers - heard almost every week on the popular FX drama "Sons of Anarchy," and prominently featured on Columbia Records' soundtrack album for the show . Thiele composes, music supervises, and produces the music for the show and is the musical director of the Forest Rangers.
The Forest Ranger band is an exercise in fluidity. "I go back with bassist Davey Faragher to when I first moved out to L.A. We landed on a session together - it was Lou Reed and Sam Moore doing 'Soul Man”. Phil Shenale and I have worked together for over 20 years. We were in the Royal Macadamians together. He can play anything! I've known guitarist Greg Leisz for a long time. I was producing an album for Curtis Stigers at Columbia in 1998, and Greg was in the band. He's just a phenomenal musician—when he’s not doing FR sessions he tours with Eric Clapton. Drummer Don Heffington is one of these guys who plays really soulful but rock-solid-- he plays like a band drummer. He doesn't feel like a studio guy."
Floating members, all famous in their own right, include singers Katey Sagal ("Gemma Morrow" of "SoA," and a former backup vocalist for Bob Dylan and Bette Midler), Curtis Stigers (the lead voice on "This Life," the "Sons of Anarchy" theme), Gia Ciambotti, Audra Mae Butts, Battleme, White Buffalo, Franky Perez and Billy Valentine; guitarists Dave Kushner, and Billy Harvey; bassist Bob Glaub; and drummer Matt Chamberlain.
Service and handling fees are added to the price of each ticket.
