Playing at 7:30pm – “Cowboy Inc was launched about two years ago when myself, Dale Reese, and my piano player BJ Boucek, began our search for the 3 best musicians in this area to join us in creating a local Country music / Classic Rock band. We found the best of the best. Stuart Denton was a Nashville drummer who moved into the Ottawa area. Mike Newton was a bass player for the River Rock band. In our home town of Wellsville, we found Mike Whetstone who had been the lead singer from the locally well known Prairie Wine Band. Collectively, these 5 musicians have played with some of the biggest Country music stars in the US. We came together as Cowboy Inc and have been proud to play at numerous private and public venues during the last year. Our song list is over 200 songs and includes music styles such as Classic Country, New Country, Rockabilly, and Classic Rock. We are excited and proud to be a part of the Wellsville Days celebration this year.”
