Randi Friedl graduated from Anoka Ramsey Community College in 2016 with an Associates of Fine Arts Degree. Friedl's love for music blossomed from her grandmother, Betty Rydell. Betty is a well-noted musician, who has won the coveted Entertainer of The Year Award, and has been inducted into the Minnesota Rock and Country Hall of Fame. Randi has been following her grandmother's footsteps ever since she could speak. She spent most of her childhood traveling to different shows with Betty, singing, playing her guitar and violin as an addition to Betty's show. Quickly, she learned the ins-and-outs of the music industry. Randi has appeared at Mel Tillis Theatre in Branson, MO, Midwest Country and many other places. She still performs with Betty but her main musical endeavor is her own band called Midwest Mayhem. Midwest Mayhem began in 2013, when Randi met her fellow band mates in college. The band quickly went from jamming every day, to playing shows almost every weekend. Midwest Mayhem has been featured on 93X Loud N' Local, and has performed at multiple venues across Minnesota including The Pourhouse, The Park-MN, The Red Carpet, and many more. Whether with Betty, or Midwest Mayhem, Randi plans to be center stage for the rest of her life. It is her life-long goal to make music her career.
