Dos Amigos

Richard & Judy Vidmer, otherwise known as music duo “Dos Amigos,” were fated to meet.  Both Richard and Judy were brought up with music in their childhood.  Richard’s mother was a piano teacher, and he is self-taught on guitar.  He also credits an Elvis impersonator, who helped with his education on guitar.  Through high school, Judy sang harmony in a girl duet group.  In 2008, in Ruidoso, Richard became involved in a duo with musician Mickey Cochran – they called themselves “Acoustic Wheel.”  They began writing originals together, but this was cut short when Mickey Cochran suddenly passed.  Richard was very inspired by his music time with Cochran, and attributes him with continuing his music career.  Richard and Judy met at a construction job – they were both sitting on the porch and made a connection.  They discovered they are musical together, and Richard bought Judy a djembe drum to add to their show.  “Among the other talent she has, she’s an excellent percussionist,” Richard says.   When you come hear Dos Amigos, be prepared for an eclectic musical journey – they play all genres, but their favorites are classic rock and classic country, with a little Alannah Miles and Peter Gabriel thrown in.  Both Richard and Judy enjoy performing, and you’ll never hear the same thing twice!

Nikki Nelson and Steve Oliver

Steve and Nikki met in the beginning of 2021 after being introduced by a mutual friend who had put them together to work on a video project done by Steve’s production company, 30 SOUTH. Ironically, they knew so many of the same friends, musicians, and music business professionals, and had run in the same circles in Nashville, but had never met that they can recall. During a break while shooting the video, Steve picked up his guitar and he and Nikki began to sing together, comparing favorite songs and singers, and sharing their love and respect for traditional country music… there was something special there. They mentioned that they should get together and write, maybe pick and sing some more, and that notion turned into a duet album called "Chase Me Around Texas" in less than 6 months. Since that time, they continue to enjoy writing, singing, and touring together.
