A resident of Charleston, Arkansas, Cody Sosebee was content playing out his days as a bareback and bull rider. As his 30s approached, Sosebee was sure he’d fill the rest of his years in the farming and ranching industry. An accidental career path was presented and Sosebee became a rodeo barrelman or “rodeo clown”. Today, Sosebee has provided sidesplitting entertainment that has attracted rodeo contractors nationwide. His goal is to entertain rodeo fans of all ages at every performance. We welcome Cody to the Prescott Frontier Days, ® Inc – World’s Oldest Rodeo ®.
John S. Payne
One Arm Bandit
John S. Payne, the notorious One Arm Bandit, was born to a rancher in the oil rich town of Shidler, Oklahoma on April 19, 1953. Ranch life with four brothers taught John to “Get out of the way or get run over”. John believes “When the going gets tough, the tough get going” and “If there is a will, there is a way”.
The cowboy said he started a rodeo act of wrangling mustangs and even a zebra to climb on top of a tractor trailer, and at the end of his performance he would get on top of it shooting off his pistol. He would do all of this with only one good arm. He’s been performing amazing acts for rodeos across the country for decades.
