MISSION OF THE TEXAS WRANGLERS

Our mission is to serve the University of Texas at Austin by promoting the spirit and high ideals of the Texas Wranglers, fostering positive relationships among all members of the University community, and assisting in community service opportunities within the Austin area.

THE EVENT: FOURTH ANNUAL TWO STEP THROWDOWN

In April of 2017, the Texas Wranglers presented the inaugural Two Step Throwdown at The Scoot Inn. We were able to raise a net donation of over $20,000 for Mona Foundation, with over 600 people attending the event. With our since solidified relationship with the Mona Foundation we hope to continue raising more donations for years to come.

The Artist: Aaron McDonnell

Singer and guitarist Aaron McDonnell was born and raised in Oregon’s rural Willamette Valley to a mill-working father and a God-fearing mother. He bought his first guitar, a knock-off Telecaster, when he was 15 years old and proceeded to learn everything from Garth Brooks to Nirvana, however it was the sound of the oldger generation that captured his imagination; George Jones, Johnny Cash, and Conway Twitty songs drifted from the radios and turntables of his grandmothers’ kitchens and living rooms. This heritage is alive and well in McDonnell’s earnest and straightforward songs, and strong, clear baritone.
