Judy Taylor – Keeping the West Alive, Cowgirl “trick roper, gun spinner, bull whip artist”
Western entertainment and education for all ages.

Judy Taylor brings the Wild West Arts ALIVE!  It takes many years of discipline to learn these fun and entertaining skills and her time was well spent. She showcases trick roping, gun spinning and bull whips with a background of upbeat Western favorites for Western theme parties.

She utilizes wireless mic and guitar amplification to enable her to stroll while performing.  She involves all ages with hands on percussion playing, as well as, numerous photo opportunities.

Fancy trick roping is done with a special cotton rope that is flexible and soft. It requires much skill to keep it spinning to do the tricks and manipulations. This art includes jumping in and out of the loop and a variety of tricks with vertical and horizontal loops while keeping the rope spinning.

Gun spinning is a visual treat with a skilled handler who can spin one or two pistols around their fingers while doing a display of movements. The guns she uses are replicas, designed and balanced specifically for entertainment and do not shoot bullets.

Bull whips were a cowboy and cowgirl’s handy tool. A routine of cracks would allow a horse rider to manage a herd of cattle or horses.  In her show, these tricks are fun and fascinating to watch and hear!


Judy Taylor performs the art of fancy trick roping, sing along western folk songs and a colorful history of American pioneers and cowboys and cowgirls. Visually exciting, musically entertaining
and lots of audience participation.

Judy Taylor – Cajun Soul
Buy the CD

Cajun Soul is an award winning CD from the California Country Music Association for which Judy received Song Writer of the Year in 1998. Judy’s music is upbeat and fun with an arrangement of acoustic instruments and great harmonies. In traditional Americana style, the songs take you back into a time when life was simple and you feel like you are in the same room with the performers.
Sample Songs:

Alligator Stew is the first song that will grab you with a Cajun beat. It spins a tale of a moon shiner in Louisiana and how he tricks the Law into drinking his homemade brew which he hides in his alligator stew!

Hooky is a true story of when Judy and her sister Doris ditch school. The events of the day are sung through the imagination of a child. The music rips when April West cuts loose on a trombone solo.

Two Shadows has a beautiful melody with sweet lyrics about two shadows that are in love and appear on the walls when the lights are low.

There are a total of 12 songs on the CD. Price is $15.00 shipping included.

Hi Judy,

I had been meaning to thank you for helping to make our Ad Sales dinner event a huge success!   We were looking for a warm and inviting family-style event and your music and western-style activities made it all happen just the way I imagined and more!  While the guests were mesmerized by your tricks and songs, for me, your professionalism and demeanor as our entertainer clearly shined through.

You were a pleasure to work with, and I hope to find the next right fit for you again!


Have a wonderful holiday!

On behalf of all of us at SOHO,

Dear Judy and Friends:

Just want to thank you for the extraordinary job you did last Friday at the Rawhide Ranch.  Don’t know how you managed to keep up with energy, excitement and great music in that miserable heat.  Everyone was so delighted with your performance.  You are truly professionals.  I’m sure you’ve heard all this before but for a lot of us, it was a great surprise.  Hope to see you again.
