These talented musicians present an evening of music including fiddle tunes, Celtic, jazz, soul, group originals, and rock n’ roll. Guests will be treated to tasty heavy hors d’oeuvres catered by Cheyenne Crossing, Chubby Chipmunk Hand-Dipped Chocolates, cash bar, and live auction. Cami Dohman will portray the adventurous wildcat of the West, Calamity Jane, who will be joined by Deadwood Alive’s Andy Mosher as Con Stapleton. The live auction includes a Homestake gold coin, vacation home rentals, private catered dinner at the Historic Adams House, Pheasant hunt, Jeep photography and fly fishing excursions, framed historic photographs and artwork, a Taurus PT 845 handgun, and much more. The auction will be hosted by Denny McKay.

Calamity Jane’s rough and rowdy, independent, and free-spirited lifestyle made her a legend. She was known to dress and walk like a man – and drink and curse like one too. This behavior often overshadowed her softer side. She was also a mother, frequently tended to the sick, and was generous and giving with what little she had. Calamity is certainly an anomaly in the history of the West, and Deadwood History has a great time celebrating her life.
