So there are some tennis courts in my town, and there was an old bus in the lot next door. We always wondered what it was, but we’re too scared to trespass into the property. Recently, we worked up the nerve to go and check the bus out. Turns out, the bus was an old tour bus for the Twang Bros! The lot was completely abandoned, so the bus wasn’t in great condition, but it is pretty darn cool. If anyone could help, I would really like to contact the old band members to show them. Please tell me if you find anything. Bella Festerling

    Used to go see them quite a bit before I left Kalamazoo. Wasn’t Carl (cant remember his last name) lead vocals?

    I lived in Kalamazoo in the 70s and used to go out to hear the Twang Brothers every chance I got. One of them lived downstairs from me in an apartment on Kalamazoo Ave. His nickname was Wheelwright and his first name was Ronnie. Any idea where he is or what happened to him? The music was fantastic!! And so are the memories!

      The Twang Brothers morphed into a band called Four Wheel Drive, which I believe is still playing in the Kalamazoo area. I don’t know if Ronnie Wheelwright is still with them, but he might be.
