Glenn

Glenn

Glenn started working as a guide for Banjo Billy in 2007, and purchased the company from the owner, John, in 2015. He never dreamed of owning a couple of weird buses, but he does. Glenn has done a bunch of different stuff in his life: Sales, marketing, stock trading, auctioneering. The guy can’t keep a job! He’s also a sketch and improv comedian, and has performed for a long time in murder mysteries in and around Boulder. He has been paid to write jokes for dummies. For 12 years he taught Economics at Front Range Community College, which he thought was a fun job. That’s right, he thinks Economics is fun! You do NOT want to ask him any questions about anything to do with Economics unless you have a couple hours to kill! Instead, ask him about what he did to Green Eggs and Ham.

Myles

Myles

Myles has lived all over the country doing Improvisation. She grew up in Florida which accounts for her love of buses and pink spandex. The last place she lived was NYC which also accounts for her tremendous appeal on the Banjo Billy Bus. She teaches Improvisation and acting as well as performs stand up comedy, "Why is 6 afraid of 7?" I‘ll let you fill in the rest. She is very happy to be working and entertaining the masses here in Boulder and thankfully Banjo Billy has supplied her with plenty of fresh audiences to try her material out on. "Because 7,8,9...get it? Thank you, I’ll be here all night!"

Scott

Scott

I grew up in Denver. I know the Mile High City like the back of my gnarled, liver-spotted hand. To say I’m a bit long in the tooth would be an understatement. I’m so old I remember when the Bronco’s played wearing horseshoes, and prairie dogs moved the chains. Back then, when a boy became a man he was treated to a special "Holiday" (take the tour, it’ll make sense) that always ended with a "Yee-Haw!" of relief. My American West work ethic was honed as a boy when I labored daily on the railroad above Ten-Thousand feet, where we were always in the middle of Climax (true story, ask me about it). In High School, I worked summers as a wrangler on the "Big Bluff Jackelope Ranch", where I refined the art of lassoing one of the horniest creatures in the world. In College, I worked summers harvesting Rocky Mountain Oysters out on the plains, where Bulls are Baritone, Steers are soprano, and the deer and the antelope are glad they don’t moo. My career was spent being a professional storyteller. Now, I get to revel in my "codgerhood" telling folks some amazing stories about my amazing home on the range, "The Queen City of the Plains". So come on out...Me and Miss Daisy look forward to bending your ears.

Galen

Galen

Galen was born and raised in the Boulder area, and grew up mostly in Nederland. He is close personal friends with the Frozen Dead Guy. During the school year Galen drives kids to and from school for the Boulder Valley School District.

Ellen

Ellen

Ellen is a driver for the Boulder Valley School District during the school year, negotiating the mountain roads around Gold Hill. She likes to drive the Banjo Billy Bus dressed in costume. She also has a Masters degree in computer science, and is a web site developer. Ellen’s first date as a kid was to Casa Bonita, so she has been Banjo Billy material since long before there was a Banjo Billy.

Patrick

Patrick

Patrick first landed in Boulder in 2013, weeks before the flood. The previous year, he survived Hurricane Sandy. He is still not on speaking terms with Mother Nature. Patrick is originally from New Jersey, but don’t hold that against him. In fact, just fuhgettaboutit. Patrick is an improvisational comedian and performs with his group, Inexact Change, at the Bovine Metropolis Theater in Denver several times a year. He loves to improvise on the tour, so no two tours are alike when Patrick is at the helm. During the day, Patrick is a Special Education teacher. Before molding the minds of future presidents and parking attendants, he worked as a professional wrestling referee, poison ivy taster, Colorado Rockies ball girl and Danny DeVito’s stunt double in Throw Momma From The Train. Top 5 Accomplishments 5.Traveling 67.1 miles by foot in 24 hours. 4.Convincing my wife to marry me. 3. Teaching 3rd graders and living to tell about it. 2.Convincing my wife to date me. 1.

Julia

Julia

Julia joined Banjo Billy’s in 2009. She is a native of Denver, and is proud to tell you that her mom went to the same high school in Denver as Pam Grier. And a bunch of other famous people. It’s all on the tour! Along with entertaining people on the bus, Julia does marketing projects for Banjo Billy.

Colleen

Colleen

Colleen joined Banjo Billy’s in 2015 as a driver in Denver, after retiring from many years driving kids around for the Denver School District. She finds that Banjo Billy’s bus riders are slightly better behaved than the kids, on most days. She has the streets of Denver memorized. Colleen likes to take unusual trips, and is a tournament Scrabble player, so don’t try to slide some fancy word past her!

John

John

John’s been with the tour since the beginning, what with being the original Banjo Billy and all. It was his idea and his hard work that brought us all into this fantastic view of history. He refuses to tell us what he had ingested before coming up with the idea for the buses’ décor. John sold the company to Glenn in 2015, but still does an occasional tour for us, because he LOVES doing tours! In his spare time, John loves travel and playing with his dog Cookie. In between tours, he likes to sneak in some other art projects and the occasional movie. There is also a rumor that John has the Urban Dictionary memorized.

Liz

Liz

Liz joined the tour back in May 2010 when she stumbled across a Craig’s List ad looking for Denver tour guides. She knew she’d be perfect for the job because she’d honed her skills while living in Milan, Italy in 2008.

In Italy, she and her husband shared a beautiful apartment with a guest bedroom and bath in a very fashionable part of town. Needless to say, her family, friends and business associates were only too eager to help Liz gain all the experience she needed by giving them free tours of the city. The truth is, Liz didn’t need much practice. As a former teacher with an advanced degree in English Literature, Liz not only loves a good story; she loves to talk and have people listen to what she has to say.

When she’s not giving tours of her adopted city, Liz is usually training for a long distance running event of some kind, or playing tennis with a friend. The minute she stops to catch her breath, Liz can be found spending time with her husband of 12 years in their 100+ year-old Capitol Hill home. She enjoys an incredibly active social life, cooking, traveling, music and entertaining, reading, and outsmarting the squirrels in her garden. Basically, she likes to have a good time all the time.
