2015 Western Trip – Day 12 – Dinner And A Very Good Show

Believe it or not, it was a rainy day in Cody and we just relaxed a little and cleaned up the coach for most of the day, then we got our second wind and crossed a couple of things off of our must do list.  The first one was an early dinner at Cassie’s Supper Club, known as one of the best steak houses in Wyoming.  Cassie was a famous Madam in the early days of Cody.

Pat had chicken fried steak, Bev had the filet, and I had their specialty prime rib. My meal was very good but both of the others were over cooked.

After a stop back at the RV we headed off to the Dan Miller Cowboy Music Revue in what used to be the local movie theater.  Dan and his Empty Saddles Band have been performing in Cody for several years.  I lifted these shots from the web so different outfits, but they represent the show we saw.

Dan has been in the music business for many years including a stint in Nashville, TN.

To his left is 17 year old daughter Hannah who has been on stage with her dad since age 8.

To her left is Wendy Carr and the person I thought was the best singer in the group – she did a great Kathy Mattea song – her day job is managing the Rocky Mountain Mojoe Restaurant and she pastors a church. 

To Dan’s right is lead guitarist Ed Cook, who’s day job is teaching guitar at a local community college.

We all really enjoyed the show and would consider it a must see when in Cody.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. Sounds like a pretty good day, and the show would be wonderful too.

  2. What a great way to spend a rainy day. You didn't waste a minute either. The show and dinner sound perfect. Looks like the ladies got dressed up (how fun) and the show looked great.

  3. Larry, Despite the restaurant being a disappointment, it sounds like the music was a real winner! We've never been to Cody so we'll have to catch it on our next road trip to the northwest. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. What a bummer that their steaks were over cooked - I hate that!!! Glad you had fun at the cowboy music revue.

  5. I love a good live show with talented musicians and singers. How fun! Sorry about the food - I hope they made it right for you. Overcooked meat is the worst!

  6. I can't remember the name of the show we went to but it was a dinner show and we had a great time. Laughed a lot and loved the music. I've marked yours for the next time we get to Cody.

  7. What a lovely way to spend a rainy day! Looks like you have a nice evening at the show!

  8. Sounds like ya'll had a good time! Some good live music and perfect Prime Rib. Life doesn't get much better than that! Have fun!

  9. Looks like a fabulous time. I love that sign for Cassie's Steakhouse.
