TEXAS PERFORMER DENNIS JAY MAKES HIS FIRST APPEARANCE IN OLD TOWN NEWHALL


OutWest has repeatedly introduced top musical talent to the Santa Clarita Valley. Expect nothing less from this month's performer, DENNIS JAY. You are guaranteed an engaging evening of original music delivered by the pure and unique voice of Texan Dennis Jay.

Dennis Jay is a singer, songwriter, guitarist who writes and performs original songs with roots in traditional country, Western, folk, blues, cowboy songs and Mexican ballads. He has spent years living, working, and traveling in the American West; from Arizona to Oregon, California to Kansas, Montana to New Mexico, North Dakota to Texas. He performs solo as well as with his fine backup band, Lonesome Town.

It has been said of his performance style "Dennis Jay "reflects Gillian Welch's talent for channeling antique voices from the lost history of American music. Jay, though, has picked that signal just post-Appalachia, somewhere in the bandwidth between Jimmie Rogers and Tex Ritter." We've had the pleasure of seeing and hearing him first hand and knew you would enjoy him too. Bring a friend and be prepared for another memorable evening of live music!

SCVTV Presents The OutWest Concert Series: An Evening with Jennifer Lind
Jennifer Lind was our guest on the radio show, "Campfire Cafe," May 12. Click here to listen.


JENNIFER LIND has a flair for ballads and a unique crossover sound of cowboy/folk style music that captures your attention. A member of the Western Music Association (WMA) and the Academy of Western Artists (AWA), she released 2 CDs to great acclaim, "Cowboy State of Mind" and "Christmas State of Mind.”

Encouraged to pursue music by her opera singing mother and accordion playing grandfather, she received a 12-string guitar on her 12th birthday. A neighbor rock & roll guitarist taught her a few chords, just enough to be able to work out a few popular folk songs. Marriage and raising a family put music on a back burner. But even though she stopped playing her guitar, she never stopped singing. Five years ago, her husband presented to her a new Martin guitar and she followed her dream crossing paths with her "Trail Boss" producer, engineer and friend, Jason Barney. Together with friends and talented musicians, they produced "Cowboy State of Mind." All songs were written by Randy Sparks, except "Old Cowboy" which was written by Jason Barney.

Now a member of the New Christy Minstrels folk group, Jennifer performs a wide range of musical genres. She says, "I sing songs that adapt to the ever-changing world of a variety of American music including: Blues, Western, Country, Folk, Pop, and even a little Motown. My goal as an artist is to share music that will resonate deeply in the memories of each member of the audience.  Every song is like sharing a piece of our life’s history together.”

MIKE BECK is an engaging acoustic solo artist who regularly performs in the United States and Europe. He is a regularly featured performer at The National Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering. Mike has six albums under his belt with original songs that have been recognized as some of the finest compositions on Western Americana out there. The Western Horseman magazine recently picked "The 13 Best Cowboy Songs," and included two compositions by Mike, putting him along side other writers such as Ian Tyson, Tom Russell, Lucinda Williams, and Gene Autry. His strong command of the guitar and playing reminiscent of Steven Stills, sets him apart in a way that has garnered him many request for guitar workshops at festivals. Mike is a seasoned performer — his guitar work and warm, genuine style engages audiences with his songs and stories.

According to Ramblin' Jack Elliot, "Mike Beck plays the guitar like a Byrd. His strings do things that mine could never do. They obey the slightest finger-touch commands like a fine Reining Horse." Born and raised in Monterey County, California, at age 13, Mike Beck went to the Monterey Pop Festival and liked what he heard. He picked up a guitar and never looked back. Since that time, he has been composing and performing a wide array of folk, rock and Americana music. Mike's songs reflect his life as a professional musician and a working cowboy in California, Nevada and Montana.

Click here for filmed concert SCVTV link!


"It's hot, jazzy and has a drawl!" San Francisco Chronicle

Mix swingin’ grooves, thrilling riffs, sweet and hot vocals, western sensibilities and tons of fun and you have only begun to describe COW BOP. Formed in 2003 by internationally-acclaimed guitarist Bruce Forman, the cowboy jazz and western bebop band has toured extensively throughout the world, exciting audiences with their unique brand of music.

The bands’ collective experience crosses the spectrum of American music, from the hottest jazz and the coolest swing to the most down-home honky-tonk. Comfortable in diverse settings, from Carnegie Hall to roadside taverns, the band always hits the stage with an electrifying and entertaining assortment of music and frolic. Along with Bruce Forman on guitar, the band features PintoPammy on vocals, whose talent and experiences range from big band swing, old-time country and musical theater, and mutli-instrumentalist David Wise, whose sax and trumpet playing takes you from the streets of New Orleans to the hottest and coolest jazz. Put that on top of a rhythm section of Tino Tafarella, bass, and Ryan McDiarmid, drums, that are as swingin’ and rockin’ as rodeo bronc, but as sure-footed as a prized pack mule and you get COW BOP.

We guarantee you a night of toe-tappin' great music and high energy fun!
