In today’s fast paced world of computerized recording and auto-tuners, it seems that the music possessing the heart and soul of country music in its prime is hard to come by. Until now, Dustin Devine and The Real Deal are carrying the torch. The Denver based six-piece band formed in 2014 includes: bluegrass and country music veterans; Dustin Devine, Doug Elrick, John Macy, Ernie Martinez, Kenny Pabst, and Chuck Tinsley. Stewards of the classic country and honky tonk sound when this music was “real”, it’s the “Real Deal”. Wear your dancin boots!

Leo Everett was raised on a cattle ranch in northern Montana. He grew up ridin’, ropin’, brandin’, breakin’ colts, stackin’ hay and livin’ and learnin’ our western way of life…ranch life.  A perfect match to the Pancake Breakfast: a good clean, family-style show. Great old songs, yodeling, and carryin’ on.
