The Original Kenny Rogers Band with Don Gatlin

    Featuring special guest, Linda Davis! 

     

    We’re not a Tribute band, we ARE THE BAND…. the band who toured with Kenny Rogers for over 40 years, and more than 50 million fans, and 5000+ shows world-wide!

     

    When looking at what we are offering by putting together this show, it is so much more than your typical “tribute band” and it is important to recognize the actual value of what we are delivering.

     

    Our group and the tours that we have performed with Kenny over these many years, represent decades of experiences and adventures that put us in a unique category that is head and shoulders above just “some guys” who put together a Kenny Rogers sound-alike show.

     

    What we deliver, is not only THE sound that backed Kenny over the years but in addition, we offer first-hand stories of adventures while on the road with Kenny as well as a viewpoint of Kenny’s music that can’t be proffered by anyone else. In addition, we present a multi-media presentation with videos and photos of the years on the road with Kenny that provide the audience an engaging experience unlike any other.

     

    We give the audience an experience that they can’t get anywhere else. Presenting the songs of Kenny Rogers, the way that he performed them, from the band who knew him best, from premiere venues such as Carnegie Hall, to Albert Hall, from Sydney Opera House to the Grand Ole’ Opry as well as the thousands of cities and venues from all over the world playing live, to well over 50 million fans in the 40+ years of touring with Kenny.

     

    Don Gatlin has been a serious player in the Country music market since the early 1990s as both a performer on Sony with ACM nominations for several years, and as a prolific songwriter, with platinum records to his credit. When we looked at setting up the Kenny Rogers Band – Through the Years show, we really gave serious thought to who would be the singer and front man for this show. As it happens, Don has been a life-long fan who credits Kenny as his main musical influence as a singer. With this special connection, as a songwriter Don had two separate songs he wrote that were recorded by Kenny and on the 2007 Greatest Hits album his song “Somethings Wrong In Vegas” was included. Kenny called Don and asked him to come in the studio to sing backup on the “song, but that was only the first surprise, while in the studio Kenny asked if Don might be interested in coming on the road to be his opening act on our upcoming UK tour! That connection ended up being such a success, that Don was asked to be the opening act for Kenny’s shows in a total of 66 times, resulting in quite a close relationship with both Kenny and the band. After Kenny’s retirement in 2018 Don approached the band with the idea of putting together the “Through the Years” show and it was felt that it would be the perfect combination and the rest is what has become a wonderful combination of the music of Kenny Rogers, performed by Don Gatlin, a dynamic, engaging front man who uniformly has the audience in the palm of his hand, with multiple standing ovations at each performance.
