Out on the prairie, cowboys sang songs around the campfire to inspire camaraderie and uncover any cattle rustlers lurking in the tall grass, who would invariably counterpoint the harmony in a soulful falsetto. Enjoy frontier-scouting tunes with today's Groupon: for $22, you get one adult ticket to see the Sons of the Pioneers (a $40 value) at the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts in Wickenburg. Choose between two performance options:
- Saturday, November 6, at 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, November 7, at 3 p.m.
Since its founding in 1934 by archetypal cowboy Roy Rogers and a group of like-minded cowpeople, the Sons of the Pioneers have sung classic compositions chronicling life in the Old West to audiences worldwide—earning them entry into the Country Music Hall of Fame and National Cowboy Hall of Fame. A veritable Supreme Court of country music, the sextet's rotating lineup of members perform for several decades before retiring, and a mandatory majority vote from the Senate is required for new cowboy singers. The venerable current roster still burns through fiddle and guitar strings like undomesticated flames fanned by the mellifluous breeze of six-part harmonies. In keeping with the authentic music and Western themes, the Sons of the Pioneers encourages audiences to applaud the performance with hearty "yee-haws," but asks them to refrain from firing six-shooters wildly into the air.
No matter where they sit in the Webb Center's 600-seat theater, audience members will enjoy a clear, unobstructed view of the on-stage action now that the venue has forbidden the wearing of oversized novelty top hats. The Webb Center is committed to bringing quality performing-arts events to Wickenburg and bolsters that support with public performance series, artist-in-residency programs, and outreach seminars to educate the community.
