J.L. Wilkins and Ray Schneckloth have a great time laughing with the crowd and playing the best all around country dance music in and around the Billings, Montana area. Both have been playing and singing in bands for many years and their love of good music and showmanship come through at every show. They have a following that is very faithful and supportive. J. L. Wilkins, a multi-talented young man on acoustic lead and rhythm guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and stand-up bass, and Ray Schneckloth on lead electric and acoustic guitars. Ray and J.L. have been working together for over two years now building a repertoire sure to attract many a dancer or those that just like to listen to a variety of good music.
They have since produced a demo of 6 songs AND just recently a video of "Six Pack To Go" as a "business card" and have posted them on this website for you to enjoy....
Keep your eyes on this website for future announcements, more sound and video clips, photographs, and current news.

NEWS! (as of Jan 26th, 2014)
Cedar Ridge played Edgar Bar last Saturday, January 25th and a great time had by all. JL and Ray started about 7:00 pm to a packed house once again. Steve and Mary greeted us in the parking lot out front as we arrived. Great friends!... and then Terry and Patti surprised us again and greeted us at their table right by the front door making sure they were up front. These are such a great friends and we highly appreciate their dedication. We met Barb for the first time. Thanks for coming out! We can always tell when someone appreciates our music and the folks at The Edgar Bar are top shelf on that, right Big D?!! Amazing! With another ... zing! You all were so much fun! Oh, and Heidi... we got to chat a bit longer this time.... ;) Oh, and thanks for inviting Rick out. We were very happy to meet him... finally. What a great guy!
You've just GOT to come out and try the Edgar Bar's steaks and prawns!

By the way, anyone that has taken photographs of their group or us, we would be more than happy to share them right here. Please email them to Ray and we will be sure to put them on as soon as we can. Send them right off of your digital camera. We will be able to adjust size and if it seems a bit dark, send it anyway because we can lighten them up. We are looking for a particular photo of J.L. playing mandolin and another of him playing fiddle with his guitar strapped to his back. If you have any of those, please forward right away and we'll put them up on this website.
