"I can, so I will," said David. For the concert, David is gathering old friends from the music industrY, as well as new talents, and bringing them to the White Barn in Blairsden for an evening of excitement, entertainment and fundraising. The concert will feature David, who was known as the "Singing Cowboy" during the peak of his career. He started his music career while he was a teen living in New York. Through playing his primary instrument, the drums, David made a name for himself and soon struck out on his own with an eight-member band. After a while the band, known as The Chris David Company, got an agent and started playing in Las Vegas. He and his ensemble spent much of their career on tour and based out of Vegas at different points throughout his career, during which he was never without his wife Bonnie and son Bill-- who was also David's road manager. According to David, Bill was a drummer as well and they had aspirations of performing the drum number together. However, last summer Bill died andleft the dream unfulfilled.

So, in tribute to both his son and the resurrection of the ski hill, David will come out of retirement to perform once more. "I want to see that hill up and running," said David.
