At a tavern in Columbus, Ohio during the summer of 2010, two
big, bad country singers first met. They quickly discovered that
they shared more than just a love of great country music. What
they found in each other was a bone fide, country-fried musical
Ian Hummel and Zachariah Whitney are talented singers, song-
writers, and engaging front men who lead local country bands.
Hummel fronts The Apple Bottom Gang, an eight-piece hillbilly
orchestra that has taken the Columbus music scene by storm.
Whitney heads up the Slick City Ramblers, a Columbus-based,
bare bones, honky-tonk band. Both outfits feature original music
and classic country covers. Hummel and Whitney each bring a
wealth of experience and material to any stage.
Besides working with their bands, the Brothers enjoy kicking
back and singing old country songs. and they don't care where.
You're likely to find them inciting sing-a-longs around campfires
and back porches. in barn-yards and basements. they'll be found
at coffee shops, truck stops and bowling alleys.they're at ease on
couches, hammocks, and even hollow logs. but mostly you'll find
the Brothers perched up on barstools, pickin' and grinin' at honky-
tonk saloons, roadhouse taverns, and at your friendly neighbor-
Hummel and Whitney have decided to bring their own brand of
relaxed fun to the people. Shows are characterized by spontaneous
interaction between the Brothers and their audience; shouting
requests and singing along are highly encouraged, and the good
times are infectious. Their format echoes the great tradition of
country music partnerships. Like Roy and Buck on Hee Haw, or
Willie and Waylon, their off-stage chemistry adds an easy going,
fun loving approach to the country music they take very seriously.
Whether they're singing about trains or trucks, farms or prisons,
or whiskey and women, the Brothers mix humor and their vast
knowledge of country music to entertain, enlighten, and indulge
