Dave Stamey Concert


Proudly Presents Our 13th Anniversary Show

Dave Stamey 2


Saturday, February 6. 2016

7 PM          $ 30

Dave Stamey, from nearby Orange Cove, has done good out in this cruel and unforgiving world. The former Dude Wrangler and Feedlot Rodeo Star, has won about every piece of hardware that Western Music has to offer today.  Anyone that has been referred to by Cowboys & Indians as “The Charley Russell of Western Music”, could get a swelled head, but not our transplanted Montana boy.  After Western Horseman said his “Vaquero Song is one of the greatest Western Songs of All Time”, he no longer needed his dad Bruce to co-sign for him anymore to buy a used pickup truck. True West noted Dave was the “Best Living Western Musician” today; yet our favorite son did not discriminate; and so he continued to sign the Skoal tins of the many, adoring Rodeo Buckle Bunnies, as well as autograph ball caps for the young goat ropers, in the parking lot, roping anybody and anything that dared walked by.

As of today, may have changed over the past 24 hours, Dave Stamey has been bestowed the following: WMA’s Entertainer of the Year – 7 times; Male Performer of the Year 5 – times; Songwriter of the Year 5 – times and Academy of Western Artists (AWA) – 1 time.


“His music is gorgeous, often funny, and his performance is flawless!”


“Booking Dave Stamey is pure pleasure because his fans, far and wide, will drive for hours to hear him. When he hasn’t been around for awhile, people start asking. They love this guy…………” PHEE SHERLINE,  Fallbrook Americana

“It’s phenomenal to see one man develop that kind of relationship with the listener. He stands shoulder to shoulder with the top performers in the industry.” FRANK WOLKING,  West Mountain Festival,  Westcliffe, CO


Call or stop by Mavericks Coffee House, 238 E. Caldwell Ave., Visalia, CA 93277 pronto, 559 624-1400, (Visa/MC), as it will be a sell out and seating is limited.

Ross Knox and Trinity Seely Concert



Presents an Evening of Cowboy Poetry & Western Music


Saturday, January 9, 2016


7 PM   $ 25

We are pleased to welcome for the first time Ross and Trinity. Ross Knox is a legend in cowboy lore. He is a renown cowboy poet featured annually in Elko and

a fearless Packer with 9 lives…he’s used up 7 of them by now.  Ian Tyson has mentioned him in his songs and Tom Russell wrote and essay on his many adventures.


Trinity is the one with the beautiful voice, while some claim Ross gargles with anti-freeze. Together they are a dynamite pair combining poetry with music.

Warren Miller from Prescott’s prestigious Sharlott Hall Western Museum says: “Ross writes about the things he knows intimately: horses, cattle, cow-dogs, loneliness, getting hitched, getting in a wreck, about the life of a cowboy.”

Jennifer Denison, Senior Editor, Western Horseman magazine comments on Trinity Seely “Music and storytelling as much a part a part working on a ranch as a saddle is to riding horses. Trinity embraces the oral traditions of the cowboy life and offers a musical window into her life as a cowgirl and ranch wife.”

Trinity Seely was named True West magazine’s Favorite Western Artist in 2012. Her song Cowboy Hat was nominated Song of the Year (2014) by the Western Music Association.


Please join us in welcoming this fine duo to Visalia, an old western town. Tickets go on sale Monday December 14.

Rex Allen Jr. Concert


Rex Allen Jr.
Wednesday, October 14, 2015
7 PM     $35
The name “Rex Allen” brings back fond memories of yesteryear! On Saturday at the hometown cinema you could catch the latest western movie of Rex Allen and his beautiful horse Koko, along with a Lash LaRue or Wild Bill Elliot film.  Well Rex may have gone where the good cowboys go, however that resonant voice of the last singing cowboy has not been lost to the public. His son, Rex Allen Jr., brings that same mellow and familiar voice to his performances. This is Rex’s first visit to Mavericks and we hope it is isn’t his last. 
Rex, born into a musical family, started singing at age 6, in church and family affairs. As a youth, he was heavily influenced by folk singer Hoyt Axton. Rex majored in Theater Arts in college. In 1992, the popular Statler Brothers invited him to be a regular on their weekly TV show on TNN. After three years, his popularity led to TNN to introduce Rex  in his own weekly show Yesteryear. After two seasons, he rejoined the Statler Brothers TV show. Rex has performed with symphonies, was the first performer to sing on the Great wall of China, and followed his father as a noted film narrator. Rex has made commercials for many companies and was the narrator on the Farrelly Brothers film Me, Myself and Irene, starring Jim Carrey and Renee Zellweger.  Rex’s song I Love You Arizona was selected as the Official State Song of Arizona. He has had over 50 songs on the music charts, which included hits such as: Lonely Street; I’m Getting Good at Missing You (Solitaire); No, No, No;  Two Less Lonely People, and It’s Over. 
Music City Awards  “Most Promising Male Vocalist”
Country Music Magazine  “Entertainer of the Year”
Western Music Association selected to the “WMA Hall of Fame”    
“We knew that Rex could sing anything we threw at him. He is the best singer in the business.”
Harold and Don Reed, THE STATLER BROTHERS 
“Rex Allen Jr. is the consummate actor, singer and entertainer and his audiences always leave the show knowing they have been supremely entertained.”
“Rex Allen Jr. has one of the cleanest, clearest voices in the world of singers and professional narrators I’ve ever heard.”
“Allen’s version of the standard Streets of Laredo strikes home for anyone who hadn’t already noticed, how similar his voice is to his father.”  
Come on out and help us welcome Rex to Visalia, an old cowboy town. Call 559 624-1400 or stop by Mavericks at 238 E. Caldwell Avenue (Court and Caldwell) for a cup of the famous coffee and pick up your tickets. Doors open at 6 PM, showtime is 7 PM. Seating is limited.

Richard Elloyan with Steve Wade Concert


Mavericks Coffee House 
welcomes back
with Special Guest 
Saturday, December 12, 2015
7 PM   $25
It’s been a few years since Richard Elloyan has played at Mavericks. The singer/songwriter from Carson City, Nevada is a songwriters songwriter. Some of the more well known entertainer out on the Cowboy Sawdust Trail have recorded his songs. Richard’s songwriting collaborator Dave Stamey, our multiple, award winning one man House Band says of Richard:  He “is a songwriter with so much talent, it should be illegal!” That’s good enough for us to invite him back. 
Richard was raised in Virginia City. After a stint in the US Navy, he attended the University of Nevada -Reno, where he studied Range Management. That resulted in his working for the US Bureau of Land Management and the US Forestry Service.  Today, he travels the highways of Nevada as an Environmental Health Specialist. Richard Wade, an accomplished guitarist, raises and trains Arabian horses in the Washoe Valley. 
Richard has eight albums to his credit. The most recent Forty Miles of Famous Title Track, was selected in 2014, by the Reno Gazette Journal, as the Best New Local Music Original Song from 43 entries considered….quite an honor! 
What are others saying: 
“A singer and songwriter of unique wit and imagination. Richard’s original music and poetry capture the spirit of the West and those that live it’s lifestyle.” DAYTON (NV) HISTORY 
Regarding his 4th album Back in Heaven, “Elloyan points out that country and western are two different genres of music. Western music reflects cowboys and a passion for the outdoors. Elloyan’s music encompasses a full landscape of emotions.” Susan Winters, NEWSREVIEW.COM 
“His lyrical agility, melodic ability, and harmonic sensibility in choosing the proper four chords make Forty Miles of Famous a fun ride powered just by two voices, two strumming guitars, a thumping bass, a touch of strings – and a spoonful of self-deprecating humor.” Mike Sion, RENO GAZETTE JOURNAL
