For the past 12 years, I have been honored to be part of the band that has played for the tribute to Marty Robbins, a singer, song writer, author and actor, and a native of Glendale, Arizona. The Friends of Marty Robbins, a non-profit organization, has put this show on stage under the watchful eyes of Juanita Buckley, the founder and preaident of this group. Many people have supported the tribute, and have DONATED their time and energy to keep Marty's memory alive. For all the years that this tribute was held in Glendale, and now in Willcox, Arizona, performers from as far away as Illinois (4)have paid their own travel and other expenses just to be part of this tribute. The main focus of our Entertainment Director, John Edmondson, has been to put on a clean, family show of approximently 3 hours of nothing but Mart's music, as well as recruit younger singers who can carry on this tradition to the future. Sincerely, Denny Sarver 3 Wheel Drive Band Glendale, AZ Feb. 17, 2010
