The Toys ready to rock The Village at 170 on Thanksgiving Eve
Kohler, WI – Since assuming ownership in January, Jeff and Mel Romanoski, owners of The Village at 170, have transformed the former Range Line Inn into a fresh, modern, multi-purpose, full-service banquet hall and entertainment complex.
The fruits of their labor are now on full display at 170 Range Line Road in Kohler. A recently completed exterior upgrade features several eye-pleasing features, including two brand new lighted signs, patio area, brick facade, classic brown and gold siding and illuminated window treatments.
“We wanted to freshen up the outside of the building,” Jeff Romanoski said. “It was kind of dark, so we have done quite a bit to light up the building with new signs and window lighting. We think the changes have made the building look more inviting from the outside.”
The interior of the facility has also been updated to offer a relaxed and comfortable ambiance.
“The inside has been redone with new lighting and new ceiling tiles in the grand ballroom,” Jeff said. “Our goal was to give the whole facility a warmer feeling.”
The Village at 170 includes a 1,200-square-foot grand banquet hall, which features a capacity of 800 people, along with a dance floor, stage and full bar area. The facility also features the Badger Room, which includes seating for 300, a large dance area and full bar.
The grand ballroom will be rocking on the night before Thanksgiving Wednesday, Nov. 23, when popular regional band The Toys will perform for what Jeff and Mel hope will be the first of many live music events at The Village at 170.
The Milwaukee-based band showcases a diverse catalogue of songs, which includes a blend of modern rock, pop, Top 40 and classic rock music.
“Our plan is to have four live music nights a year with top bands from the area playing,” Jeff said. “The Toys are a great band with a big following, so we are hoping for a good turnout.”
Doors for the event will open at 7 p.m. with The Toys scheduled to be on stage from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. There will be an $8 cover charge for The Toys performance. This will be a 21 and over show.
The event will also feature a free shuttle service ride to residents of Sheboygan Falls, Sheboygan and Kohler between 8 p.m. and 1:30 a.m.
“We want to provide people with a safe ride home,” Jeff said. “It is another extra thing that we want to provide for our guests. The shuttle will bring people right to their home from The Village at 170.”

Interest in the facility has been high and business has been booming in the first year of operation.
“We’ve been blessed with a lot of support during our first year in business,” Mel said. “We’ve had all kinds of events, including weddings, banquets, benefits, fundraisers, business meetings, school group meetings and other types of community events. We are booking out a year in advance and even into 2018. The word of mouth has been outstanding and the response from the people that have been to an event with us has been remarkable.”
