    Western music may have left the Country music genre with the end of the silver screen cowboy crooners, but that hasn't curtailed this real deal cowboy from romancing historic or contemporary characters, or western landscapes along the way. Dave is authentic, as is his music. Saturday, February 27th 7:00 PM Dave Stamey Nationally Acclaimed Cowboy Entertainer $18 advance/$20 door/$25 priority seating 2015 Entertainer of the Year (Western Music Association) and 2015 Best Solo Western Musician (True WestMagazine), Dave Stamey will return to the Old Town Center for the Arts, Saturday, February 27th at 7:00 PM. Stamey has been a cowboy, a mule packer, a dude wrangler, and is now one of the most popular Western entertainers working today. He finds he prefers delighting audiences across the country more than being stomped on by angry horses. Drawing on his own experiences, Dave Stamey will perform songs and stories about living and working in the west. www.showtix4u.com
