Award-winning duo Dailey & Vincent will bring the music of the legendary Statler Brothers to the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts stage in Wickenburg at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.  

The bluegrass artists and their band will feature their tight harmonies and musicianship in this tribute to one of the best-loved country music icons of all time.

Jamie Dailey provides guitar, bass, lead and harmony vocals to the group, while Darrin Vincent, brother to recent Webb Center artist Rhonda Vincent, plays the mandolin, bass, guitar and adds lead and harmony vocals. Completing Dailey & Vincent’s lineup are Jeff Parker on mandolin; Joe Dean on banjo, guitar and mandolin; and Christian Davis on bass vocals and guitar. BJ Cherryholmes will make a special appearance on fiddle.

Dailey & Vincent are veterans of bluegrass music, having 20 years of experience between them from long tenures with bluegrass and country legends Doyle Lawson and Ricky Skaggs. At the 2008 International Bluegrass Music Awards Show, Dailey & Vincent became the most heralded new act in bluegrass, taking home seven awards including Best Emerging Group and Entertainer of the Year.

The award-winning singers honor their country music idols by covering Statler Brother classics like “Flowers On The Wall,” “Bed of Roses” and “Class of ’57.” The Statler Brothers were one of the premiere groups in country music for nearly 40 years, from the day they hit the road with Johnny Cash in 1964 until their retirement in 2002. They are one of six acts to be inducted into both the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

Tickets are $42 for adults; $5 for 18 and under. Call the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts Box Office at 928=684-6624 or go online to www.delewebbcenter.org for seating availability.
