- Don & The Roping Dummies
- They may have a riotously funny name, but these guys take their Western harmonizing and Western Swing seriously! By the way, their name for it is â€śCowboy Rhythm.â€ť Centered in Denver,Colorado the band consists of lead singer Don Miller (a former stunt performer and big bandleader!), Mike Dudley on mandolin & vocals, Tom Barbour on
guitar and David Becher on acoustic bass. Joining on the recording are Matthew Von Doran (acoustic guitar), Jim Fischer (acoustic bass), Michael Kelly (fiddle) and Steve Lindstrom & CD producer Steve McClintock on additional vocal work. The repertoire is the â€śchuckwagonâ€ť
one, for the most partâ€¦â€ťBack In The Saddle Again,â€ť Donâ€™t Fence Me In,â€ť â€śSkyball Paint,â€ť â€śPecos Bill,â€ť â€śSouth Of The Borderâ€ť and so on. But they do them quite well and would be a great introduction of the genre for first time listeners!!
