“I have been here for 35 years and that was the best show I have ever seen!“ – Susan Portello, 3rd Grade Teacher, “The Teacher Who Doesn’t Like Anything,” Valley View Elementary, Richmond, CA

“We loved having Cowboy Dan and his show here in Duchesne. The show is great and they are very nice people. Everyone loved how he interacted with the audience during the show. He had the little boys fascinated with learning to twirl a lasso! They are definitely professionals and know how to put on a good show. We want him to come back again. Everyone who saw the show loved it!“ – Jeanne Dumas, City of Duchesne, UT

Dan’s show is completely safe and totally self-contained. Live ammunition is never used! As the most versatile and entertaining cowboy performer in the West (or East), he thrills audiences with amazing gun tricks, rope twirling, fast draw, trick shooting, death-defying knife throwing, and award-winning bullwhip cracking.

And if that wasn’t enough, Dan brings along his amazing and talented horses to perform some of the funniest horse tricks ever imagined. When it comes to trained horses, lasso exhibitions, whip cracking, real knife throwing, cowboy singing, trick shooting, and exciting audience participation, there is no better western or cowboy entertainment on the planet.

Audience participation is encouraged. When guests are given the chance to get in on the action, the show gets more fun and interesting. If you’re excited about hosting your next event western-themed, you’ve found your next entertainer!

Dan’s show works best for indoor or outdoor events, rodeo arenas, state fairs, stage shows, county fairs, school assemblies, festivals, private events, and corporate events. For shows with larger audiences, Dan brings his beautiful show tent. The tent’s measurements are 75 feet by 85 feet, with 6 peaks reaching up to 30 feet in the air. The tent protects the show and up to 650 spectators whether it’s bright and sunny or raining like cats and dogs.

From across crowds in Washington to Florida, Dan continuously receives rave reviews. He can perform up to 3 shows per day for fairs, each performance being capped around 40 minutes. If you’ve got a full-stage show, those can run 2 hours and will include a lot of audience participation. Cowboy Dan is the best in his field and his reviews confirm it! He will bring the wild west to you in your next event.

“The reports we are getting back on your show are so good they are hard to believe…You are the best act we have!“ – Jack West, President, National School Assemblies

A typical show for a western theme party includes double six-gun spinning, bull whip cracking, trick roping, the Wheel of Death knife throwing exhibition, quick draw and shooting demonstration, guitar playing and singing, and horse tricks that are unusual, humorous, and mind-blowing. Plus, Dan will even instruct a few adults or kids on the finer art of bull whipping or rope spinning. And if that wasn’t enough, he’ll even bring along his motorized, mechanical bull for guests that want to try their hand at lassoing a moving bull.

If you’re looking for a mesmerizing school assembly show, this is cowboy entertainment at its best. Along with the usual cowboy roping, bullwhipping, live cowboy music, gun spinning, and horse tricks, Dan teaches kids why they are special, how to find their special purpose, why it’s important to try again after making a mistake, and delivers a powerful “don’t try illegal drugs” message.

“That is the best assembly we have ever had. Bar none!“ – Larry Stephens, Principal, Leo B. Hart School, Bakersfield, CA

This is great western entertainment for both adults and children. If you’re putting together a Western theme party or a cowboy theme party, bring in our sensational cowboy roper and cowboy gunslinger for some rip-roaring fun. This is how the West should have been won.
