Munsick brothers to perform at the WYO this Sat.

SHERIDAN — The Munsick Boys will come together once again from around the country to put on their seventh-annual Christmas concert this Saturday at the WYO Theater.
Dave Munsick said his sons and bandmates Ian, Tris and Sam will converge in Sheridan for the annual concert from their homes in Nashville, Tenn., Houston, Texas and Weston, Wyoming.
“It brings us together with a common goal every year and allows us to communicate with each other in the best way we can and get the best show together that we can,” said Dave Munsick. “And the boys come from all over where they are, back home for this. This is one of the only times we are all together at the same time, at the same place, playing.”
Although it is labeled as a Christmas concert, Munsick said the music is not holiday related, but rather a collection of their songs from over the years as well as newer ones.
He said this year, he gathered requests from area residents about what they would like to hear and incorporated those requests into the song line-up.
“We call it the traditional, non-traditional Christmas concert,” Munsick said. “We do it for Sheridan and I think people feel kind of involved in it. It has gotten to be a big deal.”
The concert will include some new songs from Dave Munsick’s latest album, which is being released this week, titled “Forever West”.
Munsick describes it as a collection of songs he wrote about the people, times and places of Wyoming and it was recorded and produced at his Little Goose Studio.
“These songs were written from the back of a horse, the seat of a tractor, behind gravel road windshields, on shady summer porches and around winter fires,” he said.
Tris Munsick also has a new album coming out in the spring and the group will play some songs from that CD during the concert as well.
Albums from the group and the individual musicians will be available at the concert and can also be purchased locally at Java Moon, Sheridan Seed and King’s Ropes and Saddlery.
The concert will be Saturday, Dec. 21 at 7 p.m. at the WYO Theater. Admission is $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and students. Tickets are available online at www.wyotheater.com or by calling 672-9084.
