Enter the days of yesteryear, when good won over evil; when the building of America and the new frontier came from conviction and imagination; when family virtue was a mainstay in the adventure of life. Singing, poetry and music, the good winning over the evils of hard life, a common bond around a campfire at days’ end.
Imaginators and heroes like John Wayne, Hopalong Cassidy, the Lone Ranger, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers and Rex Allen fighting the battle of good over evil, a vision backed up by the music of the Sons of the Pioneers …all pioneers in a budding industry producing heroes…heroes with conviction, style and leadership who introduced soul and direction to Americas’ youth, a way of life, an avenue of adventure down the paths of righteousness.
It’s this music, performed as the Legend,
The Legend of the Pioneers.
A trek into past memories; a journey to be proud of;
an imaginative attraction; an event you’ll be proud to present.
The Legend Of The Pioneers, in a special, memorable, crowd pleasing presentation for this new millennium.
The Legend can be your event; Call today
Marty Davis brings to the stage the color, excitement and harmony of the stars of the Silver Screen and the singing cowboy era.
The Legend of the Pioneers takes you back to the trails you rode as a little cowpoke at the Saturday afternoon cinema. From the costuming, created by world famous Nudie’s Rodeo Tailors, to the rich vocal presentations, offered in concert style. It is an event that brings back memories of yesteryear. You’ll hear the classic yodel songs that advanced Roy Rogers to the throne as the “King of the cowboys”; the pure stylistic vocals of Gene Autry that made him the richest cowboy of all time; and the warmth of the bass voice that took us through many of Walt Disney’s True Life Adventures and other Disney classics, Rex Allen, the voice of voices. Of course, you’ll enjoy all the great pioneer songs you grew up with and some of cowboy poet Bob Nolan’s lesser-known but just as wonderful songs.
Marty’s newest project is hosting a thirteen week family television series called Hawaii’s Cookin’. Marty, along with cohost Juliet Lighter (Miss Hawaii USA) travel the Islands each week in search of the best adventures, entertainment and great food to be found in Hawaii. Watch for Hawaii’s Cookin’ on TNN and other national television channels this fall. Also televised in Australia and New Zealand.
The Marty Davis Show Band
Marty Davis started out singing Country music but one of the most popular parts of his show has always been the Western music segment. (For those who don’t know the difference: Country is what you hear on the radio currently. It’s the nation’s favorite and most-listened-to music. Western is what we grew up with…Gene, Roy and the Sons of the Pioneers. It tells the story of the Old West and the Silver Screen Cowboys.) Marty has performed to standing room only crowds in Nevada casinos (the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas; Cactus Pete’s in Jackpot; Fitzgerald in Reno to name a few), nightclubs, fairs, conventions, concerts and rodeos around the U.S. He spent several years singing bass and traveling the world with the legendary Fifties group, The Diamonds and, though he loved the good ole Rock & Roll, he really missed doing his own kind of music.
Marty returned to Western Music, along with Owen Johnston, bass guitarist and vocalist. Owen and Marty have worked together since 1982. Owens sweet harmony is reminiscent of Lloyd Perryman, one of the very early pioneers.
Fred Epping has been with the show for 10 years adding harmony and a great guitar style.
Together they will take you on a nostalgic trip through time… back to when the good guys wore white hats, kissed their ponies instead of the girls, headed the bad guys off at the pass and always caught’em in the end! All without mussing up their rhinestone and fringed shirts and then rode off into the sunset.
While at home, between performances, Marty and Kate live in Medford, Oregon on 100 acres over-run with animals. “You Name it, we got too much of it”. Marty has three sons (2 adopted) who cowboy for a living.
Bret is PRCA bull rider, attended college in Fallon, Nevada and is training and showing world class raining and cutting horses.
Greg is a bull rider: is in his second year of college in Klamath Falls, Oregon and plans to attend Oregon State University this fall.
Brian operates the horse portion of K bar Z Guest Ranch near Cody, Wyoming and is a hunting guide for the ranch in the fall. All three raise rodeo stock that Marty and his wife Kate have to feed.
Daughter Kelsay is working on her masters’ degree and teaching at Western Washington University.
