Gunfighters Return to San Bernardino County Fair!



By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– The Santa Fe Drifters gunfighter stuntman team of outlaws and Wild West Lawmen will perform daily at the 2016 San Bernardino County Fair (May 21-30).

The Santa Fe Drifters fight it out and shoot it up in action-packed skits that feature authentic weapons and outfits of the 1880s Old West. The Santa Fe Drifters are one of the Southwest’s longest-standing gunfighter teams (founded 1976), and are led by veteran Hollywood stuntman James A. E. Fuentez.  The original Santa Fe Drifter, Fuentez is a master of disguise, martial arts and marksmanship, who has appeared in over 150 movies, TV shows and commercials.

Santa Fe Drifters professionally trained stuntmen have appeared on TV series (The History Channel’s Wild West Tech) and commercials, and in movies (including Django Unchained, Street Eyes, Night Crew).  Their award-winning skits have captured top honors for Best Actor (James A. E. Fuentez), Best Comedy Actor (Terry “Wagon Tongue” Kurtz) and Best Costumes, at the Big Bear Thunder In Paradise statewide gunfighter competition.

Each gunfighter show is preceded by a firearms safety demonstration and strong message regarding gun safety to the youngest buckaroos in the audience.

The ensemble prides itself in father-son membership: Fuentez and tall-dark-and-handsome sons Matt and James, Junior; Kurtz and son Robert (alias“Jon Dirt”); veteran stunt-double Pete Porteous and son John; and Michael (Colt MacTavish) Halstead, son of original group member and skit-writer Micky Halstead; as well as Fuentez’ brother Darrick (“Pate Savage”) King, fellow founding member of the Drifters. Notoriously fun-loving Troy (T-Bone McNasty) Coe has been performing with the group for several years.
