Vinyl Ranch began as a one-off country DJ party at Leon's Lounge in Houston, TX. The mission was to recreate the debauchery of Gilley's Club in Pasadena. After a chance encounter with Mickey Gilley who gave his blessing, Vinyl Ranch became a recurring monthly event and the cornerstone of country music culture for local bikers, burnouts and cowboys. Over the past decade, a lifestyle brand has emerged to pay homage to the vintage honky tonk culture of the urban cowboys and honky tonk angels who once roamed the Houston streets.
Vinyl Ranch has produced and performed at boutique country music events in NYC, Austin, Houston and Nashville with corporate partners Lone Star Beer, Jack Daniels, Anheuser-Busch, Deep Eddy Vodka and New West Records. Vinyl Ranch DJs have shared the stage with Hank Williams Jr., Lyle Lovett, Asleep At The Wheel, Robert Earl Keen, Jeff Bridges, Jack Ingram and more.
Vinyl Ranch apparel is American made and hand printed in small batches in Houston, TX. Selections from the line have been worn in album art, print ads and social media images by Kacey Musgraves, Nikki Lane, Dale Watson, Wade Bowen, Sam Outlaw, Wheeler Walker Jr., Johnny Lee and more.
