When "Doc" Jones and Co holds its second annual Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering Saturday, May 30, some of the best and best known performers of Western entertainment will be coming to La Junta for the weekend.

Throughout the day at Delbert "Doc" Jones' Bunk House, 28100 County Road 809 in North La Junta, eight bands with popular vocalists and instrumentalists are scheduled to perform real cowboy music in 45- minute sets with six cowboy poets delivering their original poetry and humor for 20-minute sets in between. An evening show featuring several of the outstanding performers of the day begins at 8 p.m.

There will be a one-time-in-and-out gate fee of $10, which may be purchased on location anytime during the day. As Jones says, for this "one money, folks get a day of Western fun and entertainment This will be the real Wild West with stories that are true — no color added."

In addition to the entertainment, beginning at 9 that morning and continuing throughout the afternoon and evening, there will also be booths of Western art for sale, along with cowboy memorabilia, such as bits and spurs, and "great Cowboy Fixin's available on the grounds all day" when hunger strikes, according to Jones.
