Dale Gayle 003 20180105 smDale & Gayle Eisenhauer, now simply “Dale & Gayle,” are retired school teachers from the little town of Newkirk in northern Oklahoma.   They are on their 9th year as full-time entertainers, traveling and spreading their love of music to everyone they meet. Since their retirement of 30 years each in the public school systems, they have visited and entertained in 38 states and performed nearly 1,000 shows.  

Dale has played guitar and sung with a country dance band since 1970 in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Texas. He has been fortunate enough to be on stage playing guitar and singing backup with many country legends such as Hank Thompson, Kitty Wells, Helen Cornelius, Barbara Fairchild, Cal Smith, David Frizzell, Tommy Cash, Narvel Felts, Johnny Lee, Darrell McCall, Wanda Jackson, Lynn Anderson, Michael Martin Murphy, Jimmie Fortune and Junior Brown.  Dale says, “Each of these wonderful legends was a special moment for me as I looked up and saw “me” on stage playing music with them. I never dreamed I would ever be so fortunate. It was a dream come true to sing and play with some of my alltime country music heroes.”

One of Dale’s biggest thrills in his music career was to travel to the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville with his daughter Kathy, and stand in the “magic circle” on stage and perform several songs during an event there. It truly is like they say, a magical feeling to stand where so many greats have stood and hear your voice in the mother church of country music.

For 4 years, Dale also put together a 14 piece band,including himself, and put on a Grand Ole Opry style show in Ponca City, OK. The show was often compared to the quality of a Branson Music Show with many fans preferring the Poncan Opry to going to Branson.

Gayle was a trained pianist, taking many lessons in her childhood years. She only played and sang in church and never dreamed that someday she would be a full time entertainer, traveling the country with her husband.

Dale & Gayle do not play or sing to any track music. They play everything live and spontaneous. Dale plays acoustic guitar and sings; Gayle plays a split keyboard and is the bass player with her left hand, and piano player with her right, and she sings.
