Encore! Brian Regan Returns to Tuacahn

Brian Regan returns to Tuacahn Thursday – Saturday, May 10-12, 2012 8:00pm

Brian Regan Returns to Tuacahn near St. George, UT

American’s favorite comedian returns to Tuacahn by popular demand!

Critics and peers agree: Brian Regan has distinguished himself as one of the premier comedians in the country. The perfect balance of sophisticated writing and physicality, Brian fills theaters nationwide with fervent fans that span generations.

Releasing two critically acclaimed hour Comedy Central specials and DVD’s in as many years–2008′s “The Epitome of Hyperbole,” and 2007′s “Brian Regan Standing Up”–Brian has set a standard of excellence that others continually try to follow.

Brian’s non-stop theater tour has visited more than 80 cities each year since 2005 and continues through 2012. It is the quality of his material, relatable to a wide audience and revered by his peers, which continues to grow Brian’s fan base. In March Brian broke the record for the most consecutive shows by a comedian at Abravanal Hall in Salt Lake City with five sold out performances. The previous record was four shows set by Jerry Seinfeld in 2005.

With his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1995, Brian solidified his place on the show and has now made more than 20 appearances. He also includes regular visits with Conan O’Brien on his schedule.

Tickets can be purchased directly with Tuacahn or packaged through Best Western Coral Hills for a discount on your room.

Riders of the Purple Sage at Tuacahn

Riders of The Purple Sage perform at Tuacahn
Riders of The Purple Sage

Thursday, April 26, 2012 8:00pm  $15.50-$24.50

 

Hold onto your hats as CODY BRYANT and the RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE ride in Southern Utah for an encore performance. Mixing laughter, tight harmonies, delightful orchestrations and excellent musicianship. These gifted artists together with the SOUTHWEST SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, will provide a fast paced experience for a promised evening of unforgettable melodies of cherished songs, and classic western music at its finest. Don’t miss this one!  Campfire yes, sleepy no.
The phrase “Riders of the Purple Sage” is borrowed from the title of a Zane Grey novel published in 1912. In 1932 Jack Dalton put together a band under the name and achieved regional success on KFI radio in Los Angeles. They had two good years then disbanded in 1934. In 1942 Foy Willing put together his own Riders of the Purple Sage for the Hollywood Barn Dance Radio Show, soon achieving national success in films, radio, and live performance. He did over 20 western movies and recorded on four major labels.

In 2003 Sharon Willing urged Cody Bryant to carry on the name and lead a new version of the Riders. Cody and his band perform under the banner today.
Music festivals, corporate retreats, and concert houses thrill to the high energy and enthusiasm the Riders of the Purple Sage bring to every show. They’re fearless in taking their music to new venues and a public that’s largely forgotten Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. Every show proves the magic of the Los Angeles cowboy sound is as powerful today as it was back when they shared the screen with Roy Rogers, Dale Evans and the ever charismatic Monte Hale.
