R. J. Vandygriff is a class act. But, hes not acting.
The charismatic cowboy you see on stage is the real man.

D.A. Callaway-Entertainment Director, Silver Dollar City-Branson, MO










"Much like the lyrics of his award winning song (Keep the Campfire Burning)
RJ kept the fire burning with his performance......."
Mason Tibbs  Empty Rocker Productions-Jackson Hole, WY

"Our theatre locals were totally impressed with RJs wonderfully entertaining delivery of history, folklore and experience, presented in such a unique & intimate setting. An excellent musical comedy, worthy of a repeat performance!"
Judith Holladay, VP House  Lamesa Community Players, Lamesa, Texas

"It seems as though R.J. had an immediate connection to the High Plains Western Heritage Center and its mission. R.J.'s one-act comedy and his music were a perfect fit for the setting.
  An extra touch was the time R.J. took to visit with folks before and after the show.
The audience truly enjoyed his performance."
