Showcasing nine Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA) rodeos with nine daily performances featuring over 40 bulls and 70 saddle and bareback broncs, CFD will also feature frolicking Wild West extravaganzas, foot-stomping concerts, cookouts, pancake breakfasts and plenty of bronco-busting action and entertainment throughout the nine day event.
“We are thrilled to have such stellar Pro Rodeo champions and celebrity guests at this year’s Cheyenne Frontier Days including Sheryl Crow and actor, Kevin Costner, who will be performing with his Modern West band,” says Chuck Coon, Media Manager.
The history of Costner’s Modern West band began over 20 years ago when the Dances With Wolves director/actor met musician, John Coinman in a dirty, downtown warehouse in Los Angeles during an acting workshop. Though Coinman had an intense interest in acting Costner’s interest in music possessed equal fervour. They became friends and began to play and write music with another friend, Blair Forward. The trio went on to form Modern West, with many of their shows featuring their original material as well as other songs written by some of America’s music luminaries.
In addition to the daily concerts, the public can go behind the scenes at Cheyenne Frontier Days and observe the adrenalin-fuelled chutes, view the CFD Old West Museum, visit the CFD Indian Village, enjoy a chuck wagon cook-off (July 27-30) and free pancake breakfast (July 25,27,29), travel back in time to the Old West and celebrate Cheyenne’s western heritage at Wild Horse Gulch and watch the iconic CFD Grand Parade (July 23,26,28,30).
