Dan Miller's Cowboy Music Revue | February 2 | 7:30 p.m.

Fans of western music, you’re in luck. 

Dan Miller’s Cowboy Music Revue will swing audiences at the Avalon Theatre as part of Community Concerts of the Grand Valley’s series. This world-famous ensemble plays and sings country, western and Americana music with the best of them. 

According to frontman Dan Miller, the  group has played for people for over 18 years at the theater next to the historic Irma Hotel in Cody, Wyoming. Miller has also hosted programs on the Nashville Network, the Travel Channel and ESPN. The band has also played in 70 countries.

 

COUNTRY MILES

Music has always been a passion for Miller. Originally from northern Indiana, he taught himself to play rhythm and fingerpick guitar as well as the harmonica. 

“I love music and how it affects people,” said Miller. “Music can make them laugh or cry. I’m really blessed to be able to share my music with others.”

Miller’s youngest daughter, Hannah, started playing with Dad at age 6 on the fiddle, mandolin and guitar. Wendy Corr has played guitar and bass guitar with the band for over 12 years. In 2023, Stephanie Streeter will take Hannah’s place on tour. 

From May through September, the Dan Miller Cowboy Music Revue performs in Cody. But come fall, they’re off to play on cruise ships to Mexico and in the Gulf. They also appear in programs out of Nashville. 

“We put in about 11,000 miles of windshield time a year,” Miller said. 

They logged even more than that the year they drove from Alaska to Florida, performing in many states along the way. 

The revue features favorites from across generations, such as “Back in the Saddle Again,” “Across the Alley from the Alamo,” “I Fall to Pieces,” “Seminole Wind” and “Teddy Bear.” Miller performs his own take on “Oklahoma,” substituting Wyoming for the Sooner State. 


SHOWS WITH SPONTANEITY 

This isn’t the first time Miller has been to Grand Junction. While promoting a TV show he did a public relations performance at the historic train depot.

For the upcoming concert, Miller wants the audience to feel encouraged to participate. 

“The songs we will do will stir memories. I encourage people to sing along,” he said. 

He emphasized that his show is never the same. Even the band members never know what’s coming. 

“It’s a spontaneous evening,” Miller said.

Come enjoy the spontaneity live, and meet the group after the show! CDs will also be available to purchase.
