Come on Down to Elko, all you Elko Rejects!!

I've been trying to get Billy Rose to help organize an "Elko Rejects" Gathering down there during the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering but he doesn't want to take anything away from the "Big Show". He's probably right.

But still, for those of us who, for one reason or another just "don't measure up" for an invite to the Main Stage, we will have some open time at a couple of places.

First, at the Duncan Little Creek Gallery, right next door to Cappriola's Western Store, just down the street from the Stockman and just across the parking lot from the Folk Life Center...(pant--pant) Billy Rose will be hosting an open mic stage Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of February. All are invited, rejects or not, to perform at the Gallery Stage. Also, this year, he will have an open mic setup at the Elko Walmart. Same deal, show up, get up, perform, have fun, enjoy some great times with great people.

I know that some of the performers you will see at these two venues will be Wayne Nelson, STAMPEDE!, The High Strung Band, Toni McGuire, Billy Rose, Valerie White and myself as well as many, many other great entertainers. I don't mean to make waves, but this will be the best show in town!

All of these and many more will likely also make an appearance at Walmart. Stop in and check out these two venues while you are in Elko this year.
