David John and the Comstock Cowboys to perform

Record Courier Staff Reports

Christmas in the Sierra, is a musical you won’t want to miss this season. Performed by David John and the Comstock Cowboys, this heartwarming holiday event is guaranteed to fill even the most dedicated “Scrooge” with the Christmas Spirit.

This wonderful holiday performance was written by David John and all the music appears on a CD entitled “Christmas in the Sierra” which was released by the group in 1999. The performance is a recreation of the music amid scenes of the Sierra’s in the snow with David John and the Comstock Cowboys setting the tone for what it is like for a cowboy out on the trail at Christmas time sitting around a campfire and reflecting on the true meaning of Christmas. There is even a surprise visit from Santa Claus.

David John is an accomplished singer, songwriter, musician and playwright with a career that has taken him from Nashville to L.A. and finally to Nevada. He even spent some time entertaining in the jungles of Vietnam with the U.S.O. His wonderful baritone voice seems to flow from his heart as he sings about what he loves best; songs of the cowboy. His music is a smooth blend of old and new, telling the stories of life, death, horses, cowboys and the American West.

David John has been gaining recognition for his song writing and has been nominated by the Western Music Association as song writer of the year 2000, and Entertainer of the year 2001. He along with the Comstock Cowboys have been the opening act for well known entertainers like Merle Haggard, Juice Newton, Lacy J. Dalton, Michael Martin Murphy and Eddie Raven. They have been named Nevada’s number one western band by governor Kenny Guinn.

Christmas in the Sierra, like all his music, will return you to another place and time and surround you with a feeling of what Christmas is really all about.
