Cowboy Culture South Dakota Style


Ken Cook, Robert Dennis and Paul Larson will entertain you!



If entertainment at a level you can only experience from the back of horse is what you are craving…Robert Dennis, Ken Cook, and Paul Larson can sure enough fill the boots. Each of these artists bring their own unique 'cowboy experiences' to life every time they take the stage and present Cowboy Culture…South Dakota Style.
Ken Cook is courageously ranching and writing poetry in South Dakota. In 2009, he was named Lariat Laureate at and the following year "Top Male Poet of the Year" by the Academy of Western Artists. He also has appeared as a featured artist at gatherings, including the National Cowboy Gathering in Elko, Nevada. His passion for cowboy life and poetry comes alive on the page and in person.
Robert Dennis and his family work the ranch near Red Owl, South Dakota in much the same way his ancestors did, except for the luxury of a pickup truck…and indoor plumbing! His admiration of good cowboys, stockmen, and horsemen rings true in his unique singing and songwriting. He has performed at Cowboy Poetry and Music Gatherings across the west, including the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada.
Paul Larson's cowboy heart beats a steady rhythm in the Black Hills of South Dakota. His singing and songwriting, coupled with a rich baritone voice, are anchored to authentic cowboy music. Paul's incredible talent has been enjoyed at festivals, gatherings, ranch brandings, saloons, and campfires. If a cowboy's heart and soul has a voice, it belongs to Paul Larson.


Our goal and our passion has been to work hard, entertain our fans, and just plain have fun. We are excited to be performing and hope to see you soon at a show – take a look at our calendar, book an event or just drop us a line.


"This cowboy tag team rocks! Your whole family will roll with laughter, smile with wonder, and tear up with sorrows, as they take you along for a ride on their true tales of ranching and living in this modern day world."

"Robert, Ken, and Paul did a wonderful job at the Badger Clark Hometown Festival in Hot Springs, SD this summer. It was the first show that I had been to. Everyone was up on the stage, taking turns, and encouraging each other, adding so much humor and tears to the songs and poetry. There was such an easygoing, warm, yet professional, feel to the whole show. I enjoyed all their immense talent. Each artist was so different, yet, they all came together for an outstanding show."

"We have heard Robert, Ken, and Paul , many times, at numerous venues. They never fail to liven up the crowd, put a smile on your face, or maybe even cause you to reflect on a meaningful topic. Any of the three are worth a walk in bad boots to go see, and have a listen to!"
