Wild West Weekend 6th annual western event previously featured Sourdough Slim, known throughout the West for his fast paced variety show with great poems & tales in an entertaining weekend with Spencer/Lorraine Productions'  Western Music, Magic & Mirth. Cowboy Magician Lincoln Bond, Old Time Temecula Gunfighters, stunt ropers,  country music, cowboy poetry and even an old-time medicine show will leave you feeling mighty fine.


Cowboy Weekend or Western Heritage Weekend features an all star lineup of performers. In the past it enjoyed the talents of Sourdough Slim, (also known as Rick Crowder) serves up Vaudevillian camp with cowboy lore. Among his credits are the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada, The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC and Carnegie Hall and The Lincoln Center in New York. A doubting city-slicker audience quickly sees why country is cool when Sourdough Slim sets foot on stage. His fast-paced stage show combines cowboy singing, award winning yodeling, comedy, accompaniment on accordion, guitar, ukulele and harmonica and a keen knowledge of Old West tradition.

Didn't know that cowboy magicians exist? Well, you're going to find out when you watch Cowboy Magician Lincoln Bond in action. He embodies the Magic of the Old West, masterfully presenting  familiar scenes interwoven with the romance and mystery. Lincoln is a true rope twirlin', quick drawin', sharp shootin', horse ridin', rip roarin' real cowboy. This tall, dark, and handsome stranger gets respect from his fellow cowboys and makes the women swoon in their bonnets.

Shirley Lorraine is an entertainer who is making her mark in the world of western and cowboy poetry. Her popular and lighthearted verse, which is drawn from the humor of the west, is always an audience favorite.

Jim Spencer is a humorist and award winning magician. In addition to offering a splash of comedy as the show’s MC, he presents a magical tribute to the old time medicine shows as they were performed from the backs of wagons in the old west.

Old Town Temecula Gunfighters are a troupe of performers who stage choreographed mini-dramas & gunfights depicting life in "Temecula in the late 20’s and 30’s. There were murders, a bank robbery, a flood, and visits by Hollywood celebrities. Prize fighters Jack Dempsey and Jack Sharkey worked out in a makeshift ring on the second floor of the old Welty building at Front and Main Streets over the Blind Pig Saloon and some moon-shining was conducted in the surrounding hills." Dressed in wild west attire, the gunfighters give the audience a glimpse of what life was like back in the Old West. Each show is preceded by a gun safety talk and safety demonstration.

Jim Townsley, a trick roper, has delighted audiences from Universal Studios to every major Western heritage event in the West. Whether performing on stilts of demonstrating tricks with the lasso at ground lever, he will be sure to entertain young and old alike.

There will also be Card Games of the Wild West, a balloon artist, and we hope to have a visit from the famous Limey Cowboys!
