The Cory McDaniel Duo and Dell Burke and the Yellow Hotel

A couple of years ago, Casper filmmaker Dennis Rollins approached Cory McDaniel with a proposition: would Cory provide the soundtrack for a new documentary film currently in production about Lusk Wyoming's famous Yellow Hotel and its equally famous proprietor, Madam Dell Burke.

Of course Cory jumped at the chance, writing several new songs and reworking a few old ones. After the release of the documentary film on PBS, Cory and his band, along with many performers from the film, presented the story of Dell Burke and the Yellow Hotel live at the Lyric Theater. The performance was so well received that it's being reprised (with new material of course!) once again at the Lyric. The story of the Yellow Hotel is a fascinating piece of local history filled with heartthrobs and heartaches, told with humor and empathy. AND, it's suitable for all ages!

The Cory McDaniel Duo, (Wyoming's only four piece duo) brings a new twist to blues and Americana music here in Casper with witty and perceptive songwriting, dual percussionists, multi-part harmonies, and, for this show only, cool sunglasses.
