A Western TGIF Night at the Museum


Join us at the Black American West Museum & Heritage Center 3091 California St
From 6 to 8:30 pm to honor one of Denver's own Country and Western singers Rudy Grant.
Rudy Grant's story reads like the lyrics to a country song. He was born on a farm outside of Shreveport, Louisiana, the 7th son in a family of 19 brothers and sisters. The family moved to a farm near Bastrop in the northeast corner of the state, where they picked cotton, raised vegetables, and hunted and fished for food. Somewhere in his early twenties he boarded a bus to Denver. Worked 3 jobs, one was playing his guitar around town, until he found "the Four Seasons" country and western bar and the rest is history.
