Dave Tanner - Motivational Speaker, Entertainer


Topics: That's What I Like About Texas!

When the Boy Scouts of America recently hosted an international convention at the Gaylord Resort in Grapevine, they called on a true Texan to emcee the proceedings – Dave Tanner.

Dave not only is a Native Texan (5th generation), but he knows exactly what our non-Texan guests expect and want to see: that larger-than-life Long Tall Texan who embodies the Texas Myth. And that’s just what Dave gives them.

Whether given as an after dinner speech, as part of a full evening of Texas Music (from Dave’s “Texas ProSession” band), or just sprinkled in between introductions as emcee, “That’s What I Like About Texas” is the ultimate visitor’s guide to the Lone Star State.

“On behalf of all of us at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Inc., please accept our sincerest thanks. Rest assured, your name is at the top of our list.” - Howard Mosher, CEO

Dave Tanner’s 8 films as an actor include the Oscar-winning The Trip To Bountiful. He has worked in over 300 radio & TV commercials. Children know him as “Farmer Dooley” with Barney The Dinosaur. He has also been a researcher for Paul Harvey’s The Rest Of The Story. In his 35 years as an entertainer, Dave has performed for European royalty, leaders of business from 4 continents, and 3 U.S. presidents.
