Graduation in Laramie is about to kick off and the town will soon be in full celebration mode from Thursday til Sunday. What better way to celebrate an end and the beginning, as well as enjoy friends and family, than to saunter on down to the Cowboy Saloon on South Second Street. Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band will jump start the festivities Thursday May 3rd at 10 p.m. (there will be a standard cover charge of $5 at the door, must be 21 or older) and will continue through Saturday night.

Whether you haven't seen the band play or you're a big fan already, you definitely don't want to miss this show, the group always promises great entertainment with fun, foot-stompin' music and a rowdy good time. Now if you're on the fence about going keep in mind they  won't be back in town until September, so put on your boots and head on down. Chancey and the band love to play at the Cowboy, "it's our favorite place to play, Laramie is pretty much our hometown, we all went to school here and it's great to play for our friends...".

Chancey and the YBB have been very busy this past year, they attended the National Finals Rodeo (they are the only band without a record deal to play there), they have been travelling all over doing shows but "summer's always fun because we're so busy". This year among their hectic schedule is another trip to Cheyenne Frontier Days. For the past few years they have been playing in the Beer Tent outside the big show and they will again be in the tent for the last four days of CFD. This year will be slightly different though, "every year we played we always wanted to open for someone on the main stage, and this year it finally happened, we get to open for the legendary, Merle Haggard!".

Playing at CFD is a huge honor for the band "it's like our Grand Ole Opry", they are the first band not signed to a record label to play on the big stage. Another cool fact is that Chancey is only the second person to actually ride in the rodeo and perform on the main stage, the only other talented performer is none other than Chris LeDoux.

As for the future of the band, they will continue to entertain and produce more amazing music, hopefully with a management and record deal. With a deal like that there's no where to go but up! Continue to support the band and if you want to see more of them this summer check out their tour schedule at their band page.

Congrats and good luck to all the Grads and I hope to see you there!
