shows has always been the Western music segment. (For those who don't

Marty has performed to standing room only crowds in Nevada casinos (the
Golden Nugget in Las Vegas; Cactus Pete's in Jackpot; Fitzgerald's and
Boomtown in Reno to name a few), night clubs, fairs, conventions, concerts
and rodeos around the U. S. He spent several years singing bass and
traveling the world with the legendary Fifties group, The Diamonds
and, though he loved the good ole Rock & Roll, he really missed doing
his own kind of music.

"cowboys" you'd ever want to meet.

guys wore white hats, kissed their ponies instead of the girls, headed
the bad guys off at the pass, and ALWAYS caught 'em in the end! All
withought mussing up their rhinestone and fringed shirts and then rode
off into the sunset.
