"The Cowboy Ain't Dead Yet!"

 

“One amazing show, one unforgettable evening…..!”

 

From Portland to Paris, from Chicago to San Antonio everyone raves about the one man musical comedy “The Cowboy Ain’t Dead Yet!”  For twenty years audiences of all ages and from all walks of life have filled theaters, auditoriums and civic centers to enjoy this outstanding performance.

 

R.J. Vandygriff portrays Joe Texas who has heard the rumor “the cowboy is a dying breed” and Joe comes to town to prove the cowboy ain’t dead, you just can’t see him from the road.  R.J. is a seasoned actor, a soulful balladeer and his comic talent has been compared to the great Red Skelton.

 

You’ll ride the trail and smell the campfire smoke as Joe Texas takes you from the 1860’s to the cowboy we know today.  There’s plenty of laughs and perhaps a tear or two along trail not to mention great cowboy songs as Joe Texas tells the true story of the most fascinating character to ever ride across the pages of history, the American cowboy.

 

R.J. Vandygriff is an award winning singer/songwriter, actor and playwright.  For many years he saw the world through the windshield of a Silver Eagle bus crisscrossing the USA and Europe, sharing the stage with the biggest names in the entertainment industry.  He was the opening act for country stars like George Strait, Garth Brooks, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Alabama and The Judds, just to name a few.

 

As an actor he worked for seven seasons on “Walker, Texas Ranger” before moving to Branson, MO to star in the one man musical comedy “The Cowboy Ain’t Dead Yet!” at the Moe Bandy Theatre.
