The Gordie West Band
You may have seen this duo at one of many cowboy festivals in BC and Alberta or out promoting the Calgary Stampede throughout North America. Gordie West and Mike Dygert (aka The Gordie West Band) are a couple of guys with a thirst for the folklore of the west and a yen to play good, old cowboy music!
Gordie West, who lives a short drive north of Kamloops, began playing in country bands in his teens, spent close to 20 years touring overseas where he released 5 albums and now combines a singing career with life on his land north of Kamloops. He has a voice range that can showcase the ballads of Marty Robbins and the yodel stylings of Wilf Carter.
Mike Dygert hails from Three Hills, a small town northeast of Calgary, Alberta. When he's not with Gord, you might catch playing with the Western Spirit band or other western music colleagues. He has a dry wit that will leave you wondering "where'd he come from" and "how'd he get there"! Together they make the show come alive with music, song, and good humour.
