Rocking’ HW ~ Alan Halvorson & Ramon Selby, Al Troupe
These entertainers have a common interest in preserving the Cowboy tradition through music. They sing of the Old West and of the modern day Cowboy. They have shared their songs with many folks across the country in numerous venues.
Greg Parke gives the term “one man band” a whole new meaning. Using custom built acoustic and electric MIDI guitars, sound modules and loopers, he is able to create an amazingly full sound that seems more like a whole stage full of musicians rather than just one person, all done in real time, with no pre-recorded backing tracks. Combine that with his rich, captivating voice, a very spontaneous and entertaining sense of humor, and you are guaranteed a show that you won’t soon forget!
