In loving memory of
Pinto Bennett (1948-2021)
Jim Lemmon (1950-2020)
The past two years have been tough on many of us, and the Famous Motel Cowboys family is no exception. Our longtime bass player, friend, brother and get-it-done guy, Jim Lemmon passed away due to complications of throat cancer on April 14th, 2020. And "Our Guy", Mayor of Miserable City, and King of Elmore County, Pinto Bennett left us June 29th of this year. Our hearts are broken, but the outpouring of love and tributes from people all over the world have been comforting and inspirational, to say the least. It's wonderful to know just how many peoples' lives have been touched by these two remarkable men. We will never forget the amazing music and incredible experience of being in a band with them for the past 40 years. Rest in peace, Pinto and Jim - see you down the road...
|17th Annual Famous Motel Cowboys Reunion Postponed|
To our FMC family and friends ---
We've had numerous people, (longtime reunion attendees and musicians) express concerns to us about the growing numbers of covid cases happening here now. The safety and health of all the performers and all of you that come to enjoy and celebrate with us has to be a priority. It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing we will once again be postponing the Famous Motel Cowboys Reunion. As soon as we can safely get together we will have so much to celebrate and we will have one glorious reunion! Unfortunately that is not going to be this October. Our sincere thanks to everyone for the support and the concern.
Big Time Fun in the Great Northwest!
We had an amazing time touring Wyoming and Idaho in September!! Seven shows in ten days, great crowds and beautiful weather combined to make the whole thing a huge success. We're already thinking about booking some shows in those areas next year - possibly in conjunction with with our 13th annual reunion in May. Special thanks to Kip Attaway for all the effort he put in to make things go smoothly. Here are a few photos of some of the shows and the scenery we were fortunate to experience.... Enjoy!
