Gary McMahan: Happenin's

Heads up amigos! - May 22, 2015

I'll be playing at the Rock'n Western Rendezvous next weekend. Saturday, May 30th, 3:30-4:00pm & 5:00-5:30pm and again Sunday, May 31st, 12:45-1:15pm & 3:45-4:15pm on "The Way of the West Indoor Stage". It's gonna be a ranch rodeo and chuckwagon cook off . So all those pot bellied chuckwagon cooks are gonna show up with their dutch ovens and try to out cook each other and we get to eat it! Plus lots of western entertainment and a full blown ranch rodeo. It don't get any better than this! Please stop by and say howdy if your in that neck of the woods!

This is gonna be a good'un! - February 10, 2015

March will mark America's Soul Live's 11th anniversary, so we're delighted to close out our tenth season on Tuesday, February 17 at the Olde Town Pickin' Parlor in Arvada, CO with the one and only Gary McMahan taking the Pickin' Parlor Stage, along with Colorado-based songbird Robin JoLeady. Gary's the very best cowboy singer/poet/personality on the planet while Robin's a powerhouse country singer/songwriter. And they have something in common...they both work with Ernie Martinez. Hope to see you at what promises to be one of ASL's very best shows. As always, reservations are highly recommended.
