Save the Cowboy
Howdy, Howdy, and a great big western welcome ! The Yampa Valley Boys are STEVE JONES (lead vocals, guitar, songwriter) and JOHN FISHER (harmony vocals, old-time style banjo frailer, octave mandolin). Formatted as an old time radio show, yet as intimate as a campfire sing-along, the Yampa Valley Boys will bring you laughter, maybe a tear or two, and always a good time. Youngsters and old timers, whatever the occasion, have been captivated by the unique manner in which the Yampa Valley Boys preserve some of our Western heritage. The Yampa Valley Boys were formed in the fall of 2000 by two seasoned guest ranch entertainers. They have released a total of three CDs including 'Save The Cowboy', 'Tales of the Trail' and their newest 'Back in the Saddle Again'. 'THE BOYS', blend the old time classics (including the silver screen era) with contemporary cowboy songs, stories and poems. 'Save The Cowboy' represents a traditional approach to the music. It was recorded on open mikes 'live' in the studio, with basic acoustic instrumentation. The title song was written by Steve Jones based on a bumper sticker! Their unique sound is a combination of western harmonies, accented by Steve Jones' powerful voice, and the driving, frailing banjo style of John Fisher.
