About Boone Country
Boone Country is the latest incarnation of a group that traces it’s roots back to the Mid 1960’s
and 70’s when it was named Boone And The Buckskins. The latest Boone Country incarnation
appeared just a couple of years ago as an extension of Dan Gliko’s recording studio,
His sons, and cousin Jerry Marn have been providing tracks for various projects, and Dan decided
it would be fun to get out and play some live venues.
Dan Gliko lead guitar and vocals, is joined in Boone Country by son Dan Jr. on drums and vocals,
cousin Jerry Marn on bass guitar and vocals, Matt Urick on acoustic guitar, mandolin, harmonica and
vocals. All Members join in harmony vocals. The band performs roughly an equal mix of classic and
contemporary country and classic rock.
Classic country artists covered include Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Charley Pride, Bill Anderson
and Don Gibson. Zac Brown, Kenny Chesney, and Tim McGraw provide material for contemporary
Classic rock is represented by Van Morrison, Bob Seger, Eagles, CCR, and James Taylor.
Boone Country also Boasts an original song penned by Dan titled, “Somewhere With You.”
The band’s mix of styles has proven to be a crowd-pleasing formula.
Vocal texture also plays an important role in the band’s approach, concentrating a lot on vocal
harmonies, that people respond to so well.
Popular local favorite and crowd pleaser, Mike Croston is a singer and songwriter who lives in Geyser, Montana with his wife and two daughters. He has recorded two albums “Just Right” and “This One’s On Me” and he is currently working on his third album.
If you like the steel guitar, fiddle, and a little bluegrass for spice with no added distractions then Mike Croston’s domestic and international released songs are worth listening to. The music in his albums are a representation of his American dream and the miles of dirt and paved roads that have led him to his life in Montana.
The stories in his songs represent the abandoned dreams, accomplished dreams, and dreams somewhere in between of each and every other person out there trying to find truth and happiness in their lives: freedom, family and faith.
His music is “down home honky tonk” with songs that are sure to strike a chord with the cowboy in everyone. One review says it best about Mike’s music ability, “Wow, I knew I loved the first CD, but you have out done yourself this time with ‘Just Right.’ Great music; I still can't pick a favorite song. Just as I think I have it, well, then the next song comes on.”
Mike Croston’s CD’s are available online and on iTunes as well.
