The Cowboy Ain't Dead Yet!Starring RJ VANDYGRIFF as "JOE TEXAS"
LIVE! and on YOUR STAGE
A LIVE Stage Show Like No Other!
An inspiring, highly acclaimed one man musical comedy about the most fascinating character to ever ride across the pages of history, the American Cowboy.
Joe Texas dispels the rumor the cowboy is a dying breed. Through songs, stories and poems, Joe will share the true story of the cowboy not the Hollywood version.
It is a show not to be missed! Joe sings, twirls a rope, plays harmonica, banjo, guitar and throws in a few dance steps. His expressions have been compared to the legendary comic, Red Skelton, his wit to Will Rogers and his soulful vocal delivery is pure joy to the ear.
The set is simple, a campfire, saddle, corral fence and a couple of steer heads but it’s extremely effective. The show is adaptable to any size venue, large or small, inside or out.
Experience the West as never before! Joe keeps the audiences laughing and touching stories will bring tears to your eyes. It’s unique, fast paced and fun! Definitely can broaden your audience, therefore producing a profit on your bottom line.
Audiences of all ages from all walks of life from Portland to Paris, from Chicago to San Antonio agree this show is a "WINNER!"
What "Lonesome Dove" is to film, "The Cowboy Ain't Dead Yet!" is to live theater!

What People Say...
This Texas cowboy takes you from Lipscomb to Dalhart in this tribute to the American Cowboy. The powerful songs come from a one man, one act musical that Vandygriff performs and they are very much a story of ranching, rodeoing, and cowboying. A collection that is an absolute keeper. I can recommend this one without reservation.
American Cowboy Magazine
Our audience at Theatre Victoria absolutely loved ’The Cowboy Ain’t Dead Yet’." Response was literally 100% positive after the show with the singular question being, "When is the Cowboy coming back?". We’ll make sure that happens next year!
