California Cowboys

R. W. Smith and the California Cowboys deliver a powerful sound, with the clear punch of tight three-part harmonies. And such rowdy, foot stompin’ original songs as “Double Shot of Hank”, “Timberline” and “The Party’s Over”, it’s easy to see this band will always go over in a big way with any audience.

As lead singer and songwriter, R.W. is the polished showman. He dances and jokes with the audience while delivering top billing entertainment. Together with lead guitarist Gary Potterton (producer of “Grandma got run over by a Reindeer”), legendary Steel Guitarist, Bobby Black, drummer Hal Atkinson (formerly with Stephen Bishop), and his brother Cary Atkinson on Bass Guitar; these fine musicians form California’s most successful country-western band.

With a solid draw and non-stop show, promoters and sponsors know the Cowboys can fill the seats with cheering audiences. Appearing on concert billings with such country favorites as Alabama, Big & Rich, Dwight Yoakam, Merle Haggard, Clint Black, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, Alan Jackson, George Strait, and many other country stars.

The Cowboys have appeared frequently at many of Nevada’s top casinos’, including Harvey’s South Lake Tahoe, & Peppermill. They have also appeared at many of California’s largest fairs, Cal Expo (Sacramento), the Sonoma-Marin County fair & the Stanislaus county fair, to name a few. No strangers to large crowds, the Cowboys have performed at the Oakland Coliseum, half-time for the 49ers at Candlestick Park, the Cow Palace, the Shoreline & Sleeptrain Amphitheaters, and the Gilroy Garlic Festival; if you have a special event, the Cowboys can help make it a successful & memorable one.
