Dave Stamey Concert in Descanso • October 14

Dave Stamey has been a cowboy, a mule packer, a dude wrangler, and is now one of the most popular Western entertainers working today. He has been voted three times Entertainer of the Year, three times Male Performer of the Year and twice Songwrite of the Year by the Western Music Association, and received the Will Rogers Award from the Academy of Western Artists. He's delighted audiences in twenty states, and finds that he prefers this to being stomped by angry horses.

Reserve your spot early! Space is limited (150 seats, at Descanso Town Hall), and his concert usually sells out. Call Skip at 619-445-1856 or email
