Jeff Davidson, a former square dance caller, entertained for the Flint Hills Overland Wagon Train for 25 years.
In the historic setting of wagon trains, he developed the idea of using historical western (particularly Kansas) events
to introduce the songs he sang, and was soon asked to make his unique presentations of Kansas history and songs as entertainment
for a variety of meetings and events. Computer technology allowed the addition of pictures that match with
song lyrics to add visual to the presentation. He uses a combination of classic western and folk tunes along with
his own compositions to highlight the significant historical events that lead Kansas into statehood.
Jeff is also employed as a Kansas
State Universtiy watershed specialist. Education has been a big part of his life, and there is an educational
component to his presentations of Kansas history. He is married to Kelley and has two grown children.

band and performed throughout the state. Tony is a contractor and also does land clearing. Travis is employed
