Riders in the Sky Set for Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza Tonight
Back by popular demand, the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza presents Riders in the Sky at the Fred Kavli Theatre tonight, February 21, 2014 at 8:00 p.m.
Known for their rich blend of Western harmony and unique sense of humor, Riders in the Sky are a two-time Grammy Award-winning group that has captivated audiences of all ages across the country for more than three decades. The group has made 700 separate appearances at Nashville's Grande Ole Opry and is best known to younger audiences for their performance of "Woody's Roundup" in Toy Story 2.
Riders are keepers of the flame passed on by Sons of the Pioneers, Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, and have released more than 30 albums. The group has also enjoyed television success as comedic hosts of their own weekly CBS and TNN programs.
As a classic cowboy quartet, the trail has led them to heights they could have never predicted. Riders have chalked up 5400 concert appearances in all 50 states and 10 countries, appearing in venues everywhere from the Hollywood Bowl to Carnegie Hall. Their cowboy charisma and comedic flair have made them naturals for TV, radio and film. They are inductees of the Western Music Association Hall of Fame and are also included in the Country Music Foundation's Walkway of Stars.
