Don Jesser, Professional Rodeo Announcer, is set to preside over the 2011 RAM California Finals Rodeo.
Always exciting, informative, and truly a crowd favorite, Don understands rodeo. He draws upon his 20 plus years of experience not only as Rodeo Announcer, but upon his personal experience as a saddle bronc rider, bareback rider, and team roper. When Don makes his grand entrance into the arena atop his paint horse “Crusher”, the crowd goes wild. His rodeo “know how” helps him describe each thrilling moment of the action and allows him to educate the fans about their favorite contestants, as well as the events as they occur. Don is one of the very few in the elite category of Rodeo Announcers who actually calls the action on horseback. Being inside the arena as the action is happening helps him connect the athletes to the audience.
Joining him as our Sound Engineer, Anita Jesser, will utilize her state of the art sound system to assist Don in delivering his colorful descriptions of each event from the beginning to end. Music is an integral aspect of any rodeo production. Anita has a unique ability to match her vast selection of music to each moment of action. This adds yet another dimension of excitement, fun, and anticipation to the show. Our competitors thrive on the energy sent to them from their fans in the stands! That energy is increased even more as the crowds stomp their feet to her roof-raising musical selections!
