who just happens to be funny

October 10-11, 2020

The moment Tony Pace steps on stage you feel he’s different. There’s something about him that keeps you coming back again and again. There’s a reason why people say “I need a dose of Tony” or “I need a Tony Pace fix”. What makes the difference is who he is and what he can do. He’s been compared to Sammy Davis and so many others. Most likely any show you see with Tony Pace is improved and never scripted. He’s been hailed as the man with the voice and believes that the gift he was given must be shared, and what a gift it is.

Riders in the Sky

America’s favorite cowboys

February 6-7, 2021

40 years ago. No laptops, no cellular phones, no Google, no downloads, no Skype, no Tweets, no Apple, no Microsoft, no texting, no electric cars, no Uber. A different world. But there were three young men with drive and wit who wanted to keep a special music alive. They believed in preserving the heritage of Western Music and presenting it to a new generation. They believed in entertaining, and they did so… entertaining themselves as well as the audience! And they believed in creating original Western Music to continue the tradition, not just seal it in amber as a museum piece. What they did not realize at the time was that they would be doing the same thing 40 years later.
