Leroy Van Dyke is recognized around the world as an auctioneer, entertainer, recording artist, radio and television star, and veteran of the Nevada circuit. His two most famous songs are the "Auctioneer" and "Walk on By." Mr. Van Dyke also starred in the movie "What Am I Bid?" Leroy has recorded over 500 songs, and undoubtedly holds the record for the most repeat performance bookings of any working country music entertainer. Van Dyke has worked 40 to 70 fairs and livestock events, per year, for over 40 years.
He is the only internationally-known entertainer who is also an internationally-known and licensed auctioneer. Leroy has participated in 4-H, FFA, and sales of champion livestock over a wider geographic area than any other auctioneer in history. He has sold everything from buffalo to bulldozers and real estate to rabbits. Mr. Van Dyke is, without a doubt, the World's Most FAMOUS Auctioneer!
He attended the University of Missouri, Columbia, with a dual major in Agricultural Journalism and Animal Husbandry. Mr. Van Dyke was catapulted into show business while working for the Drovers Journal when his self-penned "Auctioneer" recording went a million-plus just weeks after its release.
