Entertainment at The Cave Theater in the Big Bear Village
The Big Bear Cowboy Gathering is proud to present the rip roaring, leg slapping, hooting and hollering of our performers who will be filling The Cave Theater with songs, poetry and music. With only 300 seats, there's not a bad seat in the house.
 Gary Robertson

Cowboy Poet, Gary Robertson, started performing and publishing his poetry in 1994. Recently, one of his poems was chosen to be included in the book Cowboy Poetry: The Reunion. For 25 years, Gary has been writing about the daily trials and tribulations of the cowboy and rancher. Currently, Gary works as Ranch Manager for Greenfield Ranch in Thousand Oaks, California.

 Sourdough Slim
Audiences step back in time with an authentic vaudeville style cowboy show in the Will Rogers tradition. Sourdough Slim is a veritable "one man Western extravaganza," crooning Western classics, playing accordion, guitar and harmonica, dancing a jig, twirling a lariat, dishing out hilarious comedic sketches and letting loose with award winning yippie-ti-yi-yodeling. A favorite entertainer at cowboy gatherings and county fairs around the country. A rollicking good time for audiences of all ages.
 The Open Range Trio

Music that captures the "Spirit of the West"...that's how the music of the award winning group from Montana, Open Range, has been described. Ric Steinke & Linda Hausler have won numerous awards and nominations from the Western Music Association and the Academy of Western Music.

 Nancy Lee

Nancy Lee, a singer/songwriter, is a native Californian performing all over the state. The Western Music Association honored her with two nominations for her first CD, "Cowboy Lullaby." She has developed her own yodeling style—a talent not many California girls possess. Nancy says she is blessed to have God given talents.
