So Long, Farewell!

It comes around every year, but it seems we’re never ready for it… the end of our summer season!

And to say this season has been “interesting” would be an understatement – but we are grateful for each and every person who attended our show in our 16th year… what a blessing you’ve been to us!

Please subscribe to this website, or “like” our Facebook page to stay up to date with what this winter will bring us. Thanks for the memories, 2020 – here’s hoping 2021 will bring sunnier skies!

New Time, New Menu, Reservations Required!

IMG_3490

Because the new COVID-19 regulations prohibit buffets, the Irma Hotel is changing the way we present our dinner/show package – and it’s GREAT!

This summer, our dinner/show guests will have the following menu options:

  • Soup of the Day
  • Salad – Caesar or Dinner
  • Choice of Entrees – Prime Rib, Haddock, Coconut Shrimp, Salmon Sensation or Chicken Fried Chicken
  • Choice of Potato or Rice
  • Vegetable of the Day
  • Dinner Roll
  • Bread Pudding

Another difference this year – the kitchen at the Irma opens at 5 p.m., so diners can eat early before attending the show, which will begin at 7:00 p.m.!

All for a great price – just $39.99 per person! Want to go to the show only? It’s $20 per person!

However, because we’ve had to change our seating arrangements to accommodate social distancing requirements, reservations will be required. So call Wendy at (307) 899-2799 to save your seats for this year’s Dan Miller Cowboy Music Revue!

Can’t wait to see you all this summer!

(Drumroll Please)… MAY 29!

That’s right – Friday, May 29 will be our opening night!

We’ve received the go-ahead from local health officials to open our doors for our first show of the season. Our seating will be spaced according to social distancing guidelines, and we’ll have hand sanitizer and other protective measures in place to keep everyone safe.

And although buffets are now outlawed, we’ve collaborated with the Irma Hotel to create a wonderful menu for our Dinner/Show Packages! Your choice of one of four entrees, veggies, salad and soup, rice or potato, a roll, and the Irma’s famous bread pudding!

The cost this year for the Dinner/Show will be $39.99 per person (tax included) and for the show only, $20 each.

However, because of the limited seating arrangement, reservations will be a MUST. Call Wendy at 307-899-2799 to reserve your seats!

We can’t wait to see you all this summer!!

It’s Rodeo Time!

Dan has been hard at work in Las Vegas this past week, shining the spotlight on the men and women of rodeo!

You can check out the best of the best for yourself by going to YouTube and watching all the episodes of National Finals Tonight!

Home, Sweet Home!

Well, it’s been a whirlwind month, but thirty days after Dan drove away from Cody to begin his 8,000 mile drive around the country, we’re all back with our families in familiar surroundings! What an excellent adventure – and here are a few pictures to show just how much fun we had!

LANDSCAPES

Dan drove from Texas to Virginia to Arizona… and boy, did we see some country!

PLAYING TOURIST

From the Antietam Battlefield in Maryland to downtown Nashville, Tennessee, we really tried to experience our country’s varied cultures!

VENUES

We played in some AMAZING theatres! And churches… and RV parks… and in hotel rooms and friends’ homes!

ON THE ROAD

The longest we stayed at one hotel was three nights – otherwise it was every day or every other day that we drove and moved into another hotel. We got really good at living out of our suitcases!

PERSONALITIES

And we had FUN! Stephanie is our “class clown” – Shelbi is always up for adventure. Wendy is the den mother – Dan is our fearless leader.

So now we’re going our separate ways again – Shelbi is spending the winter with her family in California; Stephanie is studying for her real estate exam and hanging with her folks in Billings, Montana; Wendy is reporting news from northwest Wyoming; and Dan is getting ready to hit the road again in a couple of weeks to host National Finals Tonight in Las Vegas. We look forward to joining up again in February and bringing the show to venues in Texas and New Mexico!

So… Where Are We Now??

My GOODness, what a whirlwind tour we’ve had so far!

Our October trips were short and sweet – a weekend in Wenatchee, four days in Texas and Louisiana.

But November… well, that’s another story!20191031_154818

After Wendy, Shelbi and Stephanie departed Billings on Halloween, and Dan picked them up in Washington, D.C. that night, we’ve been on the road again, going places that we’ve never been, seeing things that we may never see again… and loving every moment!

20191101_122935In Culpeper, Virginia, we explored the beautiful historical downtown, and took a few hours to hike around the woods and trails of that lovely town.

The concert on November 2nd was WONDERFUL! 950 or so folks were in attendance that night, a classy and welcoming crowd.

20191102_191640The morning of the 3rd we loaded up Dan’s truck and made our way to Harwood, Maryland, about two hours down the road. Our mid-afternoon performance was also well-attended, and Wendy and Stephanie were thrilled to have friends come to the matinee!

After the Harwood performance, 20191103_144511we once again drove two hours, this time to Hagerstown, Maryland. What a bustling city, with a very different – yet equally historical – downtown.

We were amazed to find out that the bloody battle of Antietam happened just ten miles down the road, and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit that hallowed ground. Wendy was a history major in college, so for her 20191104_125544it was her college education come to life… and the rest of the group was equally interested in spending a couple of hours immersing themselves in America’s past.

The concert in Hagerstown Monday was fabulous – for the third day in a row, the crowd was on its feet with a standing ovation for us by the end of the performance! 20191104_152750And what an AMAZING venue – the Maryland Theatre is by far the most classical location we’ve played.

The last few days have been driving-adventuring-driving! We skirted the Appalachian mountains all day Tuesday, ending the 12-hour drive with a visit to one of Dan’s incredibly gifted friends, Jackie Miller, and his lovely wife Cindy.

20191102_112543Jackie is one of THE premiere bluegrass fiddlers/mandolin players in Nashville, and is also one of the most highly respected luthiers in the business! He restores fiddles, guitars, mandos, anything with strings… and he took a few hours Tuesday evening to give a fiddle lesson to the girls!

Wednesday was NASHVILLE DAY!! 20191106_105742Lower Broadway, the Parthenon, J. Alexander’s for lunch and a brisk walk through the Opryland Hotel Atriums! Steph and Shelbi took in the night life, listening to a fabulous band perform at one of the honky-tonks downtown.

Thursday – another 12-hour driving day. And it’s RAINING. But tomorrow we’ll be in sunny Texas, getting ready for our next performances in McKinney and Greenville! 20191106_110006

We sure appreciate all the prayers you’ve been surrounding us with – please continue to think of us as we travel this week and next, and if you’re in any of the following places, come see us!

McKinney, Texas – tickets $50 for the individual performance; $120 for season tickets (purchase at door)

Heading East!

Well, it’s time to “head ’em up and move ’em out” once again – Dan is on the road, and Wendy, Stephanie and Shelbi will be taking off Thursday morning, flying to Virginia and Maryland for three shows this weekend!

It’s been an amazing tour so far, we’ve met such wonderful people! And the audiences have been phenomenal, we are beyond blessed to bring our music to folks across the country.

This weekend we’ll be in Culpeper, Virginia (November 2nd, 7:30 p.m.), Harwood, Maryland (November 3rd, 3 p.m.) and Hagerstown, Maryland (November 4th, 7:30 p.m.). If you’re in the area, please make it a point to come to the show!
