Wanted (Preferably Alive!)
Be on the lookout for a white haired, shifty eyed old cowboy often seen wearing a coffee colored duster and a dusty grey cowboy hat.  He has been known to jump out of the forest and attack unsuspecting dudes with songs and guitar pickin' as can be seen in the video below. He's wanted in at least four states.  Perhaps there will come a time when you will want him too!

About Me

My photo
I am a professional musician that currently entertains at guest ranches and performs concerts for private engagements and at RV resorts. I enjoy playing solo instrumental guitar as well as playing and singing traditional western music. I usually throw in quite a bit of stuff from old 20s - 50s big band standards too. For the most part I perform solo but I also enjoy playing with jazz bands, country bands and polka bands. I started my career playing solo instrumental guitar (listening music) at Ladd's Covered Wagon in Fort Collins, CO when I was 18. I especially love performing at guest ranches because the venues are small enough that I get a chance to make friends with a lot of the guests and I look forward to seeing them again on their return visits to the ranches. The ranches also feed me well and they always treat me like royalty, just as they do their guests! I would love to hear from you and I hope to see you in person in the near future. I would be happy to become Face Book; friends with you. This link will take you to my page, https://www.facebook.com/ben.alexander.98096. Thanks!
