In the fall of 1990 original band members Jim Ellenson on lead guitar and Andy Muenich on banjo revived the band with new members: rhythm guitar and dobro player Don Willson-Broyles, mandolin, guitar and bass player Jeff Weishaar, bass player, guitarist, concertinist Andy Hable and fiddler Andrea Christopherson to form the new, Eau Claire based, River City Ramblers. While traditional and gospel bluegrass remain the Ramblers' central genre, the band's repertoire includes other styles such as modern folk, cajun, rock and roll and original music by Andy Hable.
While Andrea's other interests and obligations have interrupted her tenure as the band's premiere fiddler, fortunately she is still available to us occasionally. We hope to see more of her. Other contributing fiddlers along the way have included Randy Maston and Nick Seeger.
All the members of the band sing lead vocals and harmonies and all play more than one instrument, lending a versatility of style and tone to the overall presentation.
