Store proprietor Allen Wooten has been collecting instruments and country music memorabilia for over 10 years. Much of his instrument collection is for sale. Every Thursday evening, he hosts an acoustic session in his Cowboy Opry venue, along with something to eat if you’re hungry. It’s kind of like the Bluebird Café of Southern Oklahoma. There’s plenty of stories, music and things to see and share at this little store which sits at the intersection of US Highway 81 and Oak Main in Comanche. He also offers music lessons for those who want to learn a lil’ pickin’.
In 2003, Geff began writing cowboy poetry about his true-life experiences while working on different cattle ranches in the area. Once you’ve heard him, you will know he was truly blessed with the ability to write cowboy poetry. His performances are astounding as he brings the ranch life to you through cowboy poetry and western music. A must hear is Geff’s cowboy humorous entertainment and western music. It is sure to delight crowds of all ages.
Geff was one of the featured cowboy western entertainers at Silver Dollar City’s Salute to the Great American Cowboy in 2007, 2008 and again in 2012. He was the2006 Silver Buckle Champion and Best of the Best winner at the worlds only Western Legends Roundup Cowboy Poetry Rodeo in 2006 and in 2009 he won the Best of the West Shootout. The events were held in Kanab, Utah where he competed against 70 plus other contestants. He followed it with a trip to the Colorado State Fair where he won the “People’s Choice Buckle” and was the “Reserve Champion” in their cowboy poetry competition.
Most recently he was honored as a 2012 Inductee into the Kansas Cowboy Hall of Fame.

Joan’s performance can be “spun” to fit your event. Currently Joan performs a stage show and can truly make a rope come alive. Her mastery of the Mexican and American styles of roping is so complete that she performs effortlessly. She combines years of stage and rodeo experience and performs a roping act with over 80 tricks in each routine. Joan’s performance is FAST MOVING, COLORFUL, FASCINATING and EXCITING to watch. Joan performs to western music which can include a professional rodeo announcer’s voice-over explaining some of the tricks as she does them. She can also do a spinning act where black lights transform costume and ropes into a glowing performance, should a complete black out setting be available. Her routine requires dexterity, precision and skill reflecting an authentic link to the beauty and flair of the original roping performed during the wild west era.
I have a medicine show that is set in the 1880’s. It is a show for all ages with Prof.Hyrum P. Hedgethicket, a con man who sells his wares, has magic tricks that can be solved by kids, audience participation, makes it rain and gets a kiss from an unsuspecting participant at the end.
I have performed for twenty-eight years at the Chuckwagon event at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. I have also performed in Pawnee Bill’s Wild West Show (10 Years), Colorado Springs Poetry Gathering, L.A. County Fair, and many events in the state for the last thirty years.
