In 1931, Walter McKinney left the group and moved to the western United States. He was replaced by a mandolin player named Jerry Taylor, who played with the Ramblers throughout the 1930s. In 1938, the Ramblers also added J.T. Jones. The band continued playing at various gatherings around the region, including a large concert in St. Petersburg, Florida in 1932, and continued playing various venues in downtown Knoxville.
The Tennessee Ramblers disbanded with the death of William Sievers in 1954. The following year, James and Willie decided to focus on Hawaiian music, and formed a band called "Mack's Novelty Hawaiians." This band, which included Jo Adkins on drums, played regularly in downtown Knoxville through the 1970s.

Famous quotes containing the word years:
“The great war that broke so suddenly upon the world two years ago, and which has swept up within its flame so great a part of the civilized world, has affected us very profoundly.... With its causes and its objects we are not concerned. The obscure fountains from which its stupendous flood has burst we are not interested to search for or explore.”
—Woodrow Wilson (18561924)
“Its no go the picture palace, its no go the stadium,
Its no go the country cot with a pot of pink geraniums.
Its no go the Government grants, its no go the elections,
Sit on your arse for fifty years and hang your hat on a pension.”
—Louis MacNeice (19071963)
