  • Father and Son Performance Group: Mike and Doc Blakely
  • A foot-stompin', barn-burnin', wild west comedy musical

Doc Blakely and Mike Blakely, a father-son team, offer a unique opportunity for meeting planners to give their corporate and convention crowds something really different.  That “something different” puts them in a class by themselves with the old-west-style Swing Riders Show, best described as a foot-stompin’, barn-burnin’ musical comedy.

The Swing Riders have performed with the likes of The Dixie Chicks, Riders in the Sky, Roy Clark, and numerous others. Doc and Mike Blakely team up to produce a memorable show full of inspirational tales of leadership – packed in a musical comedy show like no other. Called everything from “Motivational Musicians” to “Inspirational Historians” to “Corporate Cowboys,” The Swing Riders are every bit as much fun as they are inspiring.
