GENE WATSON This masterful country stylist from Houston, Texas has been thrilling audiences for more than 50 years. Gene’s very first radio single, the self-penned “If It’s That Easy” was released in 1962 so the entertainer is celebrating his 50 Years in the music business, a “Golden Anniversary” in 2012. Although the song didn’t make any radio charts, it did start the career of the man now known as “The Singer’s Singer.” Gene Watson’s tally of 75 charted titles, 23 top-10 hits and 6 number-one records has led to membership in the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame. Radio listeners are still transfixed whenever classics like “Farewell Party,” “Fourteen Carat Mind” or “Love in the Hot Afternoon” are played. The depth of emotion in his singing, his brilliant phrasing, his jaw-dropping range and the power in the lyrics he chooses are all factors in the awe he inspires in both fans and his musical peers. At an age when most people are contemplating retirement, Gene Watson is still making some of the greatest records of his life, receiving such accolades as Album of the Year and even Album of the Decade from journalists around the world. Watson earned the title of 2010 Country Music Legend of the Year, from Citadel Media’s Real Country Radio Network nationwide fan vote. Watson is one of the rare singers who still sings in the same key as he did 30 years ago and his audiences respond with standing ovations night after night when he nails the octave jumping last note on his most requested song, the now country classic “Farewell Party.” As Rodney Crowell so aptly stated, “Just when I think Country Music is a lost art form, something by Gene Watson catches my ear and I can breathe again.” Considered one of the finest pure-country singers of his generation Watson offers up one of the best traditional country shows in the business. His stunning voice captivates audiences and keeps his fans coming back again and again.

Starting with the grass roots days of Country and Rock-a-Billy to the Man In Black prison concerts, our tribute to Johnny Cash has been a stand-up hit in Branson, Missouri. This is no Broadway musical show, but an authentic recreation of the music and the man that captured the hearts of millions. You will be astounded by the uncanny resemblance that Jackson has to Johnny Cash. You will be even more astounded by his voice. Jackson truly captures the presence of Johnny Cash, not only through Johnny`s music but also his storytelling. From the moment Jackson and the New Tennessee Two Band takes the stage with a traditional Johnny Cash greeting to his exit, with guitar slung over his back, Jackson offers an exceptional portrayal of Johnny Cash. Johnny Cash chose only to work with one band and depended upon them to provide him with the unique sound that would come to be recognized by millions of fans over the world. Luther Perkins provided the unique “boom-chicka-boom” guitar that classifies most of Johnny`s songs, W.S. Holland holds his own place in music history as the first Rock & Roll drummer while Marshall Grant slapped the upright bass. This is all recreated for this tribute and the music of The New Tennessee Two is as important to the sound and successes of Jackson Cash as his own voice.
SouthBound and Company is pleased to present: A Tribute To Lynyrd Skynyrd And Frynds In this high-energy, Southern Rock Review, SouthBound and Company combine the southern vocal stylings of Ronnie Van Zant with the dual guitar-slinging replications of Southern Rock mega-hits such as ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, ‘Ramblin’ Man’ and of course, the immortal ‘Free Bird’. Featuring eight seasoned professionals coming together to fulfill their life-long passion, SouthBound and Company: A Tribute To Lynyrd Skynyrd and Frynds not only duplicate the sounds of Ronnie and the Boys, they also present a visual demonstration of a real-life Southern Rock show from the ’70’s. The combination of a tight back-beat rhythm section, honky-tonk piano, dualing lead and slide guitars and deep south, rhythm and blues lead vocals prove that old adage: The South Will Rise Again!
Born right here in Yuma, AZ, Melody Dunn is one of Yuma’s musical success stories. Yuma first took notice of Melody when she became Miss Yuma County in 1988 but her study of music started much earlier. Her love of music began at the age of 10 when she picked up her first musical instrument and has not stopped playing since. She put together Melody Dunn and Desert Sky in 2000 and began entertaining not only Yuma audiences but fans all across the county with her first tour in 2002. The band was featured on the main stage at Country Thunder USA for three years before she left us for her first tour in Australia. Melody’s first hit, Single Red Rose, was played overseas on radio and Australia’s Country Music Channel (CMT) for over a year. Today she is taking a step back from the big stage and enjoying playing the soft songs she has loved for years. Melody Dunn and Ben Freedman are now the soul behind Adagio. “Adagio” is the musical duo of Melody Dunn and Benjamin Freedman. Our goal is to bring beautiful, intimate, romantic music to your event to captivate your guests and light up your evening. With just piano and vocals, we have a very pure, light sound.
