Gate City Gunslingers
Portraying scenes from the Old West, with a bit of comical flare, the Gate City Gunslingers (originally called the Catlettsburg Gunfighters) started performing the summer of 1969, in Catlettsburg, KY. For years, they put on shows during the annual Labor Day celebration event until cast members started to disburse to pursue other interests.

With the re-birth of the group and over twenty years under their belts, the Gate City Gunslingers have been filling each other full of lead and entertaining audiences young and old throughout the region of KY, WV, and OH, as well as a half dozen other states with their brand of Old West shoot-um-ups and comedy.

Alias Smith & Owens
Alias Smith & Owens are creating quite a stir when performing their unique style of music. They are a new, up and coming Western Duo. They intend to help keep the "cowboy spirit" alive through their original music.

Cindy Smith's music doesn't fit into one particular category. She has her own style. If you put a little western, country, bluegrass and yodeling in a bucket and shake it up, Cindy Smith is what you get! Cindy was influenced early on by Rose Maddox, The Carter Family and Patsy Montana.
