Laws Museum hosting Father’s Day concert

June 10, 2011

Dave Stamey, Peavine Pickers to perform on Sunday, June 19

Laws Railroad Museum is inviting the family to bring Dad out to the museum’s sprawling grounds this Father’s Day for some food, fun, fundraising and fine tunes.
Dave Stamey and the Peavine Pickers will be per¬forming the Fourth Annual Benefit Concert at Laws Railroad Museum on Sunday, June 19.
Gates will open at 5 p.m. and the concert will begin at 6 p.m, giving attendees just enough time to chow down on the delectable offerings of Michelle Denault Catering. On the menu: a tri-tip and ham dinner.
Tickets are available at Laws Museum, The Inyo Council for the Arts and online at lawsmuseum.org.
“Bring your favorite con¬cert chair or blanket and enjoy a night of great entertain¬ment,” said Laws Board Member Susan Cullen.
According to Cullen, Stamey is the kind of enter¬tainer who embodies the Old West spirit and attitude that many of the museum’s attrac¬tions preserve and highlight.
“Stamey has been bucked off and stomped by many horses, stepped on by mules and dragged around branding pens by angry cattle of vari¬ous sizes,” a press release states. “He’s ridden in the rain, in the snow, in the rain some more, in pretty nasty heat, and in feedlot pens where the air was thick and decidedly fragrant. He’s even wrangled dudes.”
This past year the Western Music Association honored Dave the Entertainer of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the year.
The Peavine Pickers are a favorite local band, according to Cullen.
The band originated in an area of central Nevada, near Peavine Creek. They play a mix of music from classic and modern country, traditional Cowboy tunes, to 1970s soft rock and ’60s folk music.
“They consider themselves more of a Campfire group rather than a dance band,” Cullen explained. “There is no lead singer as they all sing lead at one time or another and everybody in the bank gets equal billing.”
