Celebrate the music of the West performed by Cody Bryant with the Riders of the Purple Sage at the Rabobank Theater 7:30pm Monday, January 14, 2013.
Unforgettable melodies, tight harmonies, red-hot musicianship, and a fast-paced show are trademarks of Cody Bryant and the Riders of the Purple Sage.
Pre-concert music will be performed by the Taft Union High School Jazz Band under the direction of Ms. Amanda Posey.
Under the leadership of Foy Willing in the 40s and Cody Bryant today, they still go their own musical way with a sound that is uniquely their own. With deep roots in many American folk styles, they blend elements of the classic sound of Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers with bluegrass, Cajun, and Bob Wills-style western swing into their own musical vision.
Enjoy songs like Happy Roving Cowboy, Cool Water, Ghost Riders in the Sky,
Back in the Saddle Again, Nobody Kisses their Horse Anymore and Tumbling Tumbleweeds.
While Cody and the Riders draw on their rich history, theirs is not a nostalgia show. Their musical vision looks the future straight in the eye, with an energetic, driving delivery, and fresh new material that make them crossover crowd pleasers, delighting newcomers as well as their legion of long-time fans. They are as comfortable at a cowboy gathering as they are in the concert hall. The Riders recently created arrangements for full orchestra and have performed with numerous symphonies in the Southwest.
Multi-talented musicians, the Riders’ show features vocals, fiddles, banjo, mandolins, guitars, harmonicas, bass and drums. The Riders are active songwriters in the classic cowboy/western music scene, and television music field.
Cody Bryant and the Riders of the Purple Sage are redefining classic western music for a whole new generation of fans.
Saddle up and enjoy the ride! Enjoy 5 concerts for $80.Call (661) 589-2478 for information.http://www.bakersfieldcca.org/
