Johnny Bones

While eating dinner at Big Nose Kate's Saloon in Tombstone, AZ, Sharon and I met this wonderful, quirky, minstrel named Johnny Bones.  We had a fun time talking with him and watching him entertain the crowd.  He told us he usually can be found somewhere along Allen Street playing bones and tambourines.  We finally ran into him after touring the Bird Cage Theatre.  Meet Johnny Bones...

If you ever get to Tombstone, say hi to Johnny and be sure to give him a tip.


  1. Wow! Now that is a character. I like the skull on his head. Johnny Bones looks like a happy guy!

    1. He worked two full-time jobs for years and decided he had enough. He moved to Tombstone and lives off his tips doing what he loves. We found him interesting and delightful.
