Cowboy Entertainment Brings Music and Comedy to La Junta, Colorado

La Junta, Colorado (PRWEB) May 17, 2014

When Doc Jones and Co. holds its first annual Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering Saturday, May 24, some of the best and best known performers of Western entertainment will be coming to La Junta for the weekend.

Throughout the day at Delbert Doc Jones Bunk House, 28100 County Road 809 in North La Junta, eight bands with popular vocalists are scheduled to perform real cowboy music in a real cowboy setting. The eight bands will be performing in 45-minute sets with six cowboy poets delivering their original poetry and humor for 20-minute sets in between. An evening show featuring several of the outstanding performers of the day begins at 8 p.m. A jam session is expected to follow.

There will be a one-time in-and-out gate fee of $ 10.00, which may be purchased on location any time during the day. As Jones says, for this one money, folks get a day of Western fun and entertainment. This will be the real Wild West with stories that are trueno color added.

In addition to the entertainment, beginning at 9 that morning and continuing throughout the afternoon and evening, there will also be booths of Western Art for sale, along with Cowboy Memorabilia, such as bits and spurs, and great Cowboy Fixins available on the grounds all day when hunger strikes, according to Jones.

Included in the lineup of entertainers are the following:

Bill Barwick is an accomplished western music singer-songwriter and guitarist, who was nominated for Entertainer of the Year for two years, and Male Vocalist of the Year for three years by the Western Music association; they also nominated his Cowboy Standard Time for Song of the Year. The Academy of Western Artists named him Male Vocalist of the Year in 2005 and 2008 and named his CD Cowboy Billl and Other Stories as the 2007 Western Music Album CD of the Year. He has performed regularly since 1984 at Denvers historic Buckhorn Exchange Restaurant, declared the Best Saloon of the West by True West Magazine.

Susie Knight is a cowboy poet, singer, and songwriter who has been hailed as Colorados All-Around Cowgirl Entertainer. Starting to ride a pony and perform at age three, she has since competed in horse shows and barrel racing. She has worked on ranches and performed for kids in classrooms and adults in concert halls across the West. It is said of her that Her original story-like cowboy poetry and western songs capture a womans perspective on ranching, rodeo, remudasand romance. In 2013, she was a Top 5 Finalist for the Academy of Western Artists Will Rogers Award Western Song of the Year (The Spirit of Buffalo Bill) and their Will Rogers Award for top Cowgirl Poet of the Year.

Carin Mari, who was raised in the mountains of Colorado, is barely over 20, yet she is a National Yodeling Champion and a very diverse artist who can include a wide variety of music in her shows, including Western, bluegrass, classic country, and folk. Whether playing with her band of two brothers, called Pony Express, or as a solo entertainer, she offers pleasing vocals and intricate guitar skills. Carin Maris musical life changed dramatically when she met Michael Martin Murphy, who is now a friend and mentor. They have performed on stage together. At his suggestion a dozen years ago, she began singing I Want to Be a Cowboys Sweetheart, and western music became a passion. Area residents will remember a concert played and sung by Carin Mari and the Pony Express at the Grand Theatre in Rocky Ford several years ago. Their most recent CD is Life Love Legends, which features three of her original songs.

Wes McKinley and Billy Wittfield have been playing and singing together for many years. Folks have most likely heard them when McKinley was on the campaign trail for his four terms as Colorado State Representative from his home in Walsh. McKinley is a cowboy who believes small business owners, working families, and family farmers and ranchers should be the major influences in our state government. He is co-owner of Kirkwell Cattle Company, a cattle and horse touring company that provides guided tours through southern Colorado and nearby states. As his press kit says, Rep. McKinley is an old and crusty cowboy, born a long time ago when times were tough, much like they are today. Billy Wittfield has been a musician, as Doc Jones says, for a long, long time. He is a Kansas rancher, who at one time played backup for Roger Miller.

Evelyn Roper is a singer-songwriter-guitarist living in the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Born and raised in southeastern Arizona, her music reflects the unique sound of the West-Southwest. She is an eight-year member of the Waunita Hot Springs Wranglersa Western Show Band that performs once a week throughout the summer months at the Wauneta Hot Springs Guest Ranch of Gunnison. She also plays a western solo gig at the Powderhorn Guest Ranch in Powderhorn, CO.

Sergio Trigger Schaefer was born in Dallas and raised in Colorado Springs. Here, he helped friends with branding calves and other regular day work. At the end of the day, he enjoyed throwing a poem out to the folks he worked with on ranches. Although he had always written poetry, he was further encouraged when the manager of the Winter Hawk Ranch, where he worked, urged him to perform his poems publicly. He took part in the first Cowboy Poetry Gathering in downtown Colorado Springs in 1996, and from there, he has recited his poems in almost every western venue imaginable. His poetry celebrates the stories of the old west and mountain adventures he loves.

Kurt Corsair and Floyd Beard are working ranchers in southeastern Colorado, and both are in large measure responsible for suggesting this Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering to Doc Jones and engaging many of the entertainers with him. Corsair does voice work on ads for KCEG Radio 780 AM out of Fountain and produced many of the ads promoting this weekend in North La Junta. He has made three albums of cowboy songs with a fourth on the way. One single, American Story, is about the Armys expansion into Pinon Canyon. Beard has performed poetry for 30-plus years to gatherings where his stories and style receive rave reviews. Often compared to Baxter Black, he has a genuine storytelling manner, reciting poems born in the business of everyday ranching. He is the current Colorado Chapter President of the Western Music Association. Floyds poetry is about his own experiences and his observations of the western way of life. His philosophy is simple: Life is a journey, not a destination, and is best viewed from atop a good horse.

Leon Davis (Professor Leo Picatune) is a La Junta resident who is a skilled musician on bugle, accordion, piano, the penny whistle, and other instruments, as needed. However, for Docs Poetry and Music Gathering, the Professor is offering his special Medicine Show, complete with comedy, music, and special prices on an array of snake oil. As a particular health feature, he is sellingat reasonable pricesa variety of convenient outhouses. (No demonstration models will be available, however.) Davisout of characterhas performed at community gatherings and theatre performances from La Junta to Denver, and is a regular interpreter at Bents Old Fort NHS.

Blackwood, NJ Army Veteran Wins CollisionMaxs Metal of Honor Auto Body Repair Award

Trevose, PA (PRWEB) September 18, 2014

Erik Hohenberger, a 44-year-old U.S. Army veteran, is the latest winner of CollisionMaxs Metal of Honor Award, the company announced today. As a result, CollisionMax of Blackwood, NJ will repair his silver 2006 BMW 325i sedan free of charge.

A resident of Blackwood, Mr. Hohenberger enlisted a year after he graduated from high Sterling High School in Stratford, NJ, in 1989, during the lead up to the first Gulf War. I had just received my certification as a heating and air conditioning technician, but Army service was a kind of tradition in my family, and I wanted to do something to help my country defend itself, he says.

Iraqi forces invaded Kuwait in August, 1990, and Hohenberg had orders to ship out for combat duty there. But just before we were going to leave, my orders were changed. Instead, I was sent to South Korea, where the Army had a supply base shipping equipment to the Gulf. I was a little disappointed, but in the Army you follow orders.

In South Korea, Mr. Hohenberger was a mechanic assigned to repairing Army vehicles, from HUMVs and trucks to tanks. He also participated in training exercises along the North Korean border. After a year there, he was transferred to an army logistics base in Kansas, and was discharged from active duty in 1992 as a corporal. He continued to serve in the Army reserves until 1998.

I loved the Army, he says. It taught me leadership and responsibility, and it was like one big family.

When he enlisted, Mr. Hohenberger was following in his fathers footsteps. My father was born and raised in Munich, Germany, and lived through World War II there, he recounts. He was a chef, and in the late 1940s he came to America. In the 1950s, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, because it was a way for him to become a U.S. citizen. Ironically, his father was assigned to the same base in Germany where Elvis Presley was serving his military duty. He tells me stories about Elvis, but I dont really know if theyre true, he says.

Now a mechanic with an equipment rental company in Runnemede, NJ, Mr. Hohenberger says he misses the Army. Im trying to get a civilian job at Fort Dix or McGuire Air Force base, just so I can be part of the military again. Meanwhile, he says his 17-year-old daughter, now a high school senior, has entered the Army Reserves early enlistment program. She wants a career in healthcare, and believes shell get the training and support for education with the Armys help, he explains.

When Mr. Hohenberger bought his BMW my dream car — three years ago, it had 78,000 miles on it and was in bad shape, both mechanically and cosmetically. He says hes spent all of his spare cash fixing the engine, and making the power windows and sun roof work, but the body is still in bad shape with a dented hood, scrapes and dings, and chipped and bad paint all over.

I was ecstatic when I heard I won the award, he says. I drive past CollisionMax every day, back and forth to work. I want to keep this car for many years, and its great to know that its going to look as good as it drives.

Through its Metal of Honor Project, now in its second year, CollisionMax gives away auto body repairs to US military veterans, one per month for each of its locations in the Delaware Valley. The company selects the winners from nominations it received from the public on the projects web site,

The Metal of Honor Project is our way of saying thank you and honoring the men and women of our armed forces who put their lives on the line for all of us, said Jim Tornetta, CollisionMax president and CEO.

In New Jersey, CollisionMax operates shops in Blackwood, Cinnaminson, Glassboro, Marlton, Pennsauken, Sicklerville and Westmont. In Pennsylvania, it has repair centers in Oxford Valley, Warminster and two in Northeast Philadelphia (both on West Grant Avenue). For information about CollisionMax, please visit
