Corporate Training & Business Entertainment in Utah

There’s something about the Old West that makes people sit up and take notice. Whether you need business speakers, corporate training and education, keynote speakers, team building, cowboy entertainment, or a warm western welcome to greet your guests, Hired Guns can do it for you!

Real Cowboy Entertainment

Looking for some old-fashioned cowboy entertainment? You’ve come to the right place. As the Western duo In Cahoots we’ve entertained audiences everywhere from Cody, WY to Munich, Germany from our home base in Utah. We blend a catalog of our own tunes with standards like Ghost Riders in the Sky and Cool Water. We may even throw in a humorous story or two! Schedule us for your next business gathering, family reunion, or Western music festival. If you’re looking for something more, we can arrange a full evening of cowboy entertainment with musicians, poets, quick-draw artists and trick ropers. And while the Salt Lake City area is our home, we’ll go wherever you need us. Whatever your event, we’ll have you and your guests stomping their feet and clapping along—it’ll be an evening you’ll long remember!

Corporate Training & Leadership Workshops

Yes, we’re cowboy entertainers, strumming guitars and spinning yarns. But we’re also Salt Lake City-based public speakers and corporate educators, providing customer service training, team building, and leadership workshops for businesses of all shapes and sizes. Think of us as Cowboy EnterTRAINERS! With the help of real working cowboys, we apply the Code of the West to the challenges that face your organization, helping your team members develop a personal ‘brand’ that will inspire them to be more customer-focused, better problem solvers, and more excited to come to work each day. We call it Ridin’ for the Brand—your Brand. It’s entertaining, it’s memorable, and most of all, it’s effective. And while we call Utah home, we’ll be glad to bring the experience to you, wherever you are.

Give us a holler today for a free no-obligation consultation to discuss how we can make your next meeting the most effective you’ve ever held.

Ridin for the Brand

“Craig “Creek” Johnson ran home from school each day to catch Roy Rogers on TV and dreamed of being just like the cowboy actor. As an adult, he met Lannie “The Marshal” Scopes, who had the same childhood ambition. They are the Hired Guns–performers and motivational speakers. You’ve never seen training so downright entertaining–or effective. And you can’t beat their brand of cowboy music and humor.”

BOU_2010“Lannie ‘The Marshal’ Scopes, left, and Craig ‘Creek’ Johnson certainly look the part of the old-time cowboy: weathered visages and abundant facial hair. But that’s just the outward manifestation of the love for the Old West that the longtime ‘In Cahoots‘ partners have brought to their public speaking and meet-and-greet venture. Whether it’s cowboy poetry, humor, music or rustlin’ up a big ‘Howdy,’ Scopes and Johnson have made it their business to keep a certain authentic Western spirit and code alive. If the event calls for cowboys, it calls for these Hired Guns.”
