We are Mama’s Wranglers, the Jackson Family Band & Cloggers.  We’ve been performing together for over 15 years now, and have performed in Canada, Europe, and 49 states!  We really enjoy sharing our love of music with our audiences and feel like we have “family” everywhere we perform.

Moving from Salt Lake City in 2007 to Henderson was one of the BEST moves we ever made (especially after the first winter not having to shovel snow!).  We relocated here when we signed a contract to perform at resorts in Southern California and Phoenix area, and Vegas was a good middle point to live!

The community has embraced us, and so we take advantage of EVERY opportunity we can to “give back”!  We are involved with fundraisers (American Diabetes Association, Cancer, Veterans, schools, etc.), providing entertainment for special groups (Triple Run Kids Dare, Opportunity Village, etc.), feeding the homeless, etc.

“Music, our Family Tradition” is our motto, and we love that downtown Henderson has become our “HOME”!  We may be small, but our heart is as big as Texas.  So come on in to the Firelight Barn, kick off yer boots, and enjoy good ol’ western dinner and music!
