Bruce Hauser & The Sawmill Creek Band, fondly called Wyoming's Wild Western Windblown Band, brings you a totally unique style that Bruce calls Rocky Mountain Music.

Bruce Hauser & The Sawmill Creek Band is Wyoming's original and beloved country western music band best known for their outstanding performances of the Hauser-penned originals that have stimulated their success.

One look at the breathtaking Teton mountains, the awe of Yellowstone National Park and the beauty that is Wyoming, and it's not hard to see why Bruce Hauser was inspired to write so many songs in honor of the west and the western way of life - or should we say Wild Western Way Of Life (reference to their first hit single, Wild Western Windblown Band)?

Inspired by his love of the natural grandeur of the Grand Tetons, and his respect for the strong, vital character of the people of Wyoming, his roots in Cody and his home in Jackson Hole, Bruce Hauser’s compositions reflect the heart of the Great American West and the Grass roots of all of this great country: America.

As Bruce says, "Don't be afraid to love us, we won't do you wrong."

Bruce Hauser & The Sawmill Creek Band have received many accolades over the years, made the Billboard Top 100 Charts, played sold-out venues across the world and received industry praise such as:

"A husky and alluring vocal style"
"Absolutely magnificent songs"
"Major-league product in every way"
"Bruce Hauser may be Jackson Hole's best kept secret"

With quotes and comments like these from people prominent on the country music scene, it's no wonder that Bruce Hauser and The Sawmill Creek Band gained the momentum and earned a reputation throughout the west as the hottest number on the honky-tonk circuit.

Bruce Hauser, a master of the acoustic guitar and five-string banjo, has been singing, performing, and writing original compositions since he was 14 years old and had his first band - he on guitar and a friend on drums. Bruce Hauser founded the Sawmill Creek Band in 1973 and since that time, the Wild Western Windblown Band, as they are affectionately known (after their first album of the same name) has accumulated an impressive array of credits.
