The Cowboy and Hobo Show entertains at RV parks throughout the Rio Grande Valley in the winters. In the summer, these musicians take their acoustic guitar and bluegrass music show to Minnesota.
Cactus Willie, Boxcar Bob, and The Drifter entertained us last night at the Park Center RV Park. This is just one of the many campgrounds and RV parks they play at during the winter. They have a busy schedule in the Texas Rio Grande Valley from Mission to South Padre Island.
Boxcar Bob plays guitar, mandolin, and sings. Cactus Willie plays lead guitar and sings. The Drifter plays upright bass and sings, and tells stories. The music includes cowboy and hobo songs, gospel music, some blue grass, and some oldies rock.
They have CDs for sale. We bought a set of three: Let's Keep It Simple, Borders and Acoustic Crossroads, and I Just Don't Look Good Necked Anymore. The CDs include many of the songs they performed for us last night. Plus, a diverse mix of other good old songs, such as North to Alaska and Bye Bye Love.
There was no admission fee for this show. Donations were taken at the door.
If you get a chance to see their show, I suggest that you go. If you aren't going to be in the Rio Grande Valley in the winter, you might catch them performing in the Midwest during the rest of the year.
