The Beginning:

In 2001 Tex Whitson, the former manager for Merle Haggard, while in Studio Vegas heard Pat Dalton Amico’s original song, "That's What I Do" and thought the song was a natural fit for the National Finals Rodeo (NFR). That same year Pat formed his band, The Pat Dalton Gang, when he was asked to perform during the NFR. Some of the locations The Pat Dalton Gang has played include on NBC for a ten week stint, at motorcycle runs, honky tonks, bars, NASCAR events, and the Downtown Hoedown on Fremont Street in Las Vegas. Since that time Pat recorded and produced many national and local artists at his recording studio, Studio Vegas, which he sold to the internationally famous band, The Killers. 


The Songs: 

He also has focused on songwriting and has now written more than 150 songs including writing the song for the NFR, the XFL Outlaws theme song for NBC, and the song “Something About You” featured in the movie "Poker Run." Several of his current originals are playing on Scorpion Radio Group stations, including The Vault-Classic Rock, Route 66 Crusin' Country and The Blues Alley.  


Pat Dalton Gang covers include: 

Country: Performs covers of Hank Williams, Jr.; Waylon Jennings; Willie Nelson; Merle Haggard; George Strait; Travis Tritt; Toby Keith; Jason Aldean; Eric Church; Brooks & Dunn; etc.

Southern Rock: Performs covers of Lynyrd Skynyrd; Stevie Ray Vaughn; Allman Brothers; ZZ Top; Molly Hatchet; Grand Funk Railroad; Kid Rock; Marshall Tucker Band; etc.
