Marty Davis started out singing Country music but one of the most popular parts of his show has always been the Western music segment.  (For those who don’t know the difference: Country is what you hear on the radio currently. It’s the nation’s favorite and most-listened-to music. Western is what we grew up with…Gene, Roy and the Sons of the Pioneers.  It tells the story of the Old West and the Silver Screen Cowboys.)  Marty has performed to standing room only crowds in Nevada casinos (the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas; Cactus Pete’s in Jackpot; Fitzgerald in Reno to name a few), nightclubs, fairs, conventions, concerts and rodeos around the U.S.  He spent several years singing bass and traveling the world with the legendary Fifties group,  The Diamonds and, though he loved the good ole Rock & Roll, he really missed doing his own kind of music.

Marty will take you on a nostalgic trip through time… back to when the good guys wore white hats, kissed their ponies instead of the girls, headed the bad guys off at the pass and always caught’em in the end!  All without mussing up their rhinestone and fringed shirts and then rode off into the sunset.
