"Prairie Duster Drill Team "

Horse Rides 3-4:00
4:30 Performance

The Prairie Duster Drill Team serves as ambassadors for Kansas' Biggest Rodeo and has been riding in formation since 1985. With pride in their country and their performances, the team displays themselves in a professional and patriotic manner with the American flags they carry and their attire of red, white and blue. Their self-supporting travels have taken them as far as Ruidoso, New Mexico, and Cheyenne, Wyoming, along with their regular appearances throughout Nebraska, and extensive travel in Kansas. The group performs difficult maneuvers in precision. The horses and riders log many hours in the practice pen to conquer these drills performed at top speed. Part of their performance is a military pass through in honor of our U.S. Veterans and the Star Spangled Banner they so proudly present. The Prairie Duster Drill Team is honored to represent the great sport of rodeo and their very own Kansas' Biggest Rodeo at all of their performances.

"Dueling Pianos" is more than just music; it's crowd interaction, comedy, and fun music all in one! Request your favorite song. The crowd determines what is played, no two shows are ever the same. Caz Bzdek and Geoffrey Celluer, Denver, Colorado, will perform the entire show on portable baby grand piano replicas.

Performance at 5:30

When film maker George Lucus directed the movie, American Graffiti, during the 1970s, he could not have predicted the wave of nostalgia that swept the United States as a result of the smash movie hit.

It was during this time that a group of musicians from Victoria, Kansas formed the group, Jimmy Dee & the Fabulous Destinations. Little did they know that their high energy show, featuring major hit...s from early 1960s, would propel the band into one of the most popular groups to ever perform in western Kansas. Performing at clubs and dance halls throughout the western half of the state, the group routinely "packed the house" every weekend, with many of their loyal supporters traveling upwards to 100 miles to attend a performance.
It seemed everybody wanted to recapture the excitement and music of the 1950s. The popular television show, Happy Days, provided an additional boost to the nostalgia craze, as did well-known national bands Sha Na Na and Flash Cadillac & the Continental Kids.

In the early 1980s, the Fabulous Destinations went their separate ways, some performing in popular groups such as Blubird, The Heat, and Anthony & the Anamals. Jimmy Dee, meanwhile, went on to perform as the Jimmy Dee Band and maintained a loyal following for many years. In 2000, six members of the original Jimmy Dee & the Fabulous Destinations agreed to reform and play a selected number of dates as a means to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the group. Although the band originally had planned just to play the one year, positive reaction from its loyal supporters prompted the group to continue to perform. In 2002, Jimmy Dee released a CD entitled "Round Trip" and followed that with another CD in 2003 called "Summer Fun."

Today, the group is still going strong, playing selected dates throughout the year, and supporters continued to attend their performances. Perhaps they, like the band members, enjoy the fun and good times that come along with every Jimmy Dee and the Fabulous Destination performance
