Best pedal-steel guitar player - 2000
"Uncle" Dick Meis
Denver's king of the Sho-bud puts the pedals down with area country acts including Lois Lane's Superband (fronted by Meis's wife, Lois) and Denver Joe. His star-striking skills keep area pickers' jaws dropping on a regular basis, and his occasional solo steel showcases are helping introduce others to the instrument. To quote Denver Joe, Meis is the man himself.
