Duke Davis joins Caverns Adventure Park music lineup
Duke Davis, cowboy poet, singer and songwriter, and his band, Buckshot, are joining the evening entertainment lineup during Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park’s summer chuckwagon dinner shows.
“Duke is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning performer,” park co-owner Steve Beckley said. “He’s also a real cowboy who owns and operates a horse ranch. We’re thrilled to be able to bring his authentic cowboy music and poetry to town.”Davis and Buckshot perform on Memorial Day and Tuesday, then every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings June 18 through Labor Day. The Colorado Wranglers, formerly of the Flying W Wranglers cowboy band, perform Wednesday through Saturday evenings until Labor Day weekend.
A Texas native, Davis will entertain audiences with funny tales of the cowboy life, rope tricks and Western music during the 6 p.m. dinner shows. Scotty Vaughn, Vern Thomson, and Joe Stephenson comprise the Colorado Wranglers, who are well-known for performing their family-friendly western musical comedy shows in Colorado Springs and nationwide.Davis has been a professional musician and songwriter since 1966. He has performed at nearly every major cowboy gathering and Western festival in the country, as well as in Canada, France, Holland, England and Switzerland. As owner and operator of the Osita Ranch near Guffey, Colo., Davis trains and brokers horses when he’s not performing.
He has been recognized by the California Country Music Association, the Country Music Association of America, the Academy of Western Artists, the Western Music Association, the Music Industry Coalition, and still devotes much of his time to educational youth programs. He’s produced seven albums; his most recent, “Blue Texas Sky,” includes “Texas Moon,” the No. 1 western swing song in November.First-come, first-serve seating for the chuckwagon dinners begin at 3 p.m. daily. Reservations are suggested, and can be made by calling 945-4228 or 800-530-1635, ext. 11. The park’s entertainment schedule is available online at http://www.glenwoodcaverns.com.
