What an AWESOME turnout in Wenatchee, Washington! Over 650 people were in attendance, according to the Community Concert Association, one of their biggest crowds ever for a Community Concert.
We are grateful to James Wallace, the tech director at Wenatchee High School, and his young crew, who made it a great experience on stage, and a fantastic, responsive audience.
And the town was beautiful! Having never traveled to Wenatchee before, it was a lovely surprise to see the majestic Columbia River winding through the city. Great restaurants, fabulous lodging, and friendly people made it a memorable trip.
Next up – Terrell, Texas and Morgan City, Louisiana on the 22nd and 24th of October, respectively. When you come, get ready to welcome the newest member of our band, Stephanie Wilson! You can read more about her on our “About the Band” page.
And… we’re off!
Dan and Wendy left Cody early this morning (Friday), to officially begin the Dan Miller Cowboy Music Revue 2019 Tour! We made a stop in Billings to pick up our newest band member, Stephanie Wilson, who won’t be on stage with us this weekend, but who will be getting a taste of life on the road.
She’s been practicing with us for the last month, preparing for the remainder of the tour, beginning in Terrell, Texas at the end of this month! Stephanie played an evening with Wendy and Dan on Sunday evening at the Holiday Inn. She’s going to do great!
We’ll be picking Hannah up in Missoula this evening, she’ll be playing this weekend in Wenatchee, Washington! Until then, we’ll be crossing the state of Montana today – check out this amazing view of the Crazy Mountains!
It’s going to be a great trip – stay tuned to our website and our Facebook page for updates along the way!
We have had some FABULOUS TripAdvisor reviews – and a lot of those came from this last weekend’s performance in Shipshewana at the Blue Gate Theatre. We just had to share!
From our Shipshewana show:
Came for a concert, got there early enough for the buffet. Food was good. Concert was GREAT!!!! Well worth the three hour drive and three hour drive back! Will definitely be back!
Show was done very well. Excellent talent. Relaxing day. Food before was delicious. Loved shopping before the show. Took yummy baked goods home to enjoy.
And some reviews from this summer for our show right here in Cody:
Very talented trio. Music was great, humor was off the cuff and witty. Intimate seating provided personal feeling of welcome. We had the combination dinner/show and it was a very good value.
LOVED this show—will go again someday. Small theatre, very intimate feel. Loads of talent on that small stage. We had a meal at the IRMA HOTEL before the show.
Dan Miller and show is a great night out in the heart of Cody. Ticket costs are very moderate for an excellent show. Musicians extremely talented. Theater is small and can get filled if there are bus tours. This is not a chuckwagon type show so if you do that show, you will not see a repeat. Dan and company have been performing together many years and it shows. Definitely a true find in Cody!
My husband and I booked this show while camping in the Cody area and are so glad we did !!! Dan, his youngest daughter, Hannah and Wendy sing beautiful harmony together. Dan and Wendy on their guitars and Hannah on her mandolin and fiddle did not disappoint. The show is entertaining with stories, western songs, love songs and cowboy ballads. But my favorite was the poem, My Cup has Overflowed. Don’t miss this 8 pm show in downtown Cody next to the famous Irma Hotel !!! It’s the best !!!!!
Our first “road gig” for 2019 is in the books! We had a sold-out, standing-room-only house at the Blue Gate Theatre in Shipshewana, Indiana on August 31st.
Shipshewana is such an interesting place – a largely Amish settlement, the small town has capitalized on the appeal of Amish goods, and draws thousands to the theatres, shops and restaurants.
The town is home to several convention center hotels, and on any given weekend visitors can see the likes of Trace Adkins, the Oak Ridge Boys, Kenny G and Shoji Tabuchi at both the Blue Gate Theatre and the Shipshewana Events Center.
We played the night after Moe Bandy (who we had also been on the Larry’s Country Diner Cruise with last year), and although the owner of the Blue Gate had never heard of us, our fans, family and friends made sure that he will remember us after Saturday’s show!
The support from folks, many of whom had driven HOURS to see us, was overwhelming – what a gift! Thanks, Indiana, for welcoming Dan home!
(Yes, his mother really is from Indiana.)
If you’d like to see our Hannah perform yet this summer, there are only a handful of days left before she heads off to the University of Wyoming for her senior year.
Tonight (Thursday, August 15), tomorrow, and then next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (August 20-22) will be her final nights here in Cody for the 2019 season. After that we have a couple of very special musicians who will bring their talents to the stage throughout the month of September – more on them later, but we promise, you won’t be disappointed!
We wish Hannah well as she heads off to Laramie – Happy Trails, dear!
It’s hard to believe, but we’re two-thirds of the way through our season! And there will be some changes as August winds down.
Our Hannah will be leaving us at the end of August to go back to school at the University of Wyoming, so if you’d like to see our show featuring Hannah on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, you’ll want to come in the next couple couple of weeks, Monday through Thursday!
But don’t worry, we’ve got amazing musicians set to step into her shoes for the remainder of the year. Our own Tim Bushnell will be enthralling audiences with his guitar skills, and look for other special guests as the season continues!
Do you want to attend just the show? Or do you want a full evening of dining and entertainment? You’ve got choices!
If you’re interested in the show only, you can come to our Music Hall at 1131 12th Street (right behind the Irma Hotel) between 7:30 and 8 p.m. – tickets are $17 per person or $16 for seniors and active military.
If you’d like to take advantage of a great discount by participating in our dinner / show package, then you can go to the Irma Hotel Restaurant between 6:30 and 6:45 p.m., tell them you’d like to do the dinner/show package, and after your meal (the Irma’s fabulous prime rib buffet!) you’ll get your tickets to come next door to the show. Tickets for the Dinner/Show package are $37 per person, or $36 for seniors or active military.
For more information, give Wendy a call at 307-899-2799!
We have hit the ground running in our new venue next door to the Irma Hotel!
The 2019 season has already seen several full houses, lots of tour groups and individuals taking advantage of the amazing dinner/show package with the Irma!
This summer you’ll have the chance to hear our own beautiful Hannah Miller sing and play her fiddle and mandolin Monday through Thursday, and we are thrilled to welcome back to the stage the talented Tim Bushnell, who will play with Dan and Wendy on Fridays and Saturdays! Tim played with the group from 2005 through 2011, and has returned to lend his signature guitar and mando sound to the Cowboy Music Revue!
For ticket information or reservations, call Wendy at 307-899-2799!
If you want a sneak peek at what we’re offering this summer, you won’t want to miss out on our COMMUNITY NIGHT on Tuesday, May 21st!
We’re opening the doors for a reduced price (just $15 per person) as a THANK YOU to our local friends and followers! Bring your family for a first look at our new “Music Hall” and some new songs that we’ve worked up for the 2019 season!
No reservations required – just show up for the fun on Tuesday, May 21st!
If you haven’t heard yet, WE’VE MOVED! Hopefully for the last time…
We are currently converting a storefront neighboring the Irma Hotel into what we’re calling “Buffalo Bill’s Music Hall” – a perfect little theatre space just right for our cowboy music revue!
Thanks to our partnership with the fine folks at the Irma, what was just a long, narrow, empty space will soon be a beautiful theatre! Our new address is 1131 12th Street, just behind the Irma.
Because we’ve been able to get in there and start work, we are relieved to find out that we have MORE SPACE than what we originally thought we might – so the dates that we had marked “sold out” we can open back up again!
We’re looking forward to seeing many of you this summer!!
