Saddle up for the Bar J Wranglers
The Bar J Wranglers, world famous singing cowboys from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, will perform at Wynona Thompson Auditorium on Saturday, April 21, 2018 in a concert to benefit the opening of the Cody Heritage Museum. Doors will open at 6:30pm, with the concert to start at 7:00pm The Bar J Wranglers will entertain your entire family with western harmonies straight from the range, cowboy stories and jokes that will have you laughing in the aisles.
Over 30 years ago, Babe Humphrey founded the Bar J Wranglers, and now his sons, Scott and Bryan continue the family tradition, along with Tim Hodgson, Donnie Cook and Danny Rogers. The Bar J Wranglers perform in Jackson Hole 7 nights per week during the summer months, entertaining 700 people nightly at the acclaimed Bar J Chuckwagon. “As much as we enjoy playing on our home stage, we love taking the show on the road,” says Scott Humphrey. The volunteer Board of Directors of the Cody Heritage Museum is delighted to bring this perennial favorite into Cody for their enjoyable show, with the help of sponsors Tanager Beverages, Big Horn Radio Network and the Skyline Rodeway Inn.
Babe Humphrey, who has been known to make a surprise appearance while the Wranglers are on tour, adds, “We so enjoy giving folks the opportunity to experience our authentic western show in their own home town.” Bettie Marie Daniels of Cody is organizing the benefit concert as a member of the Board of Directors for the Cody Heritage Museum and is an old friend of the founder. Daniels says, “The community and our Board had so much fun when we sponsored this entertaining western show back in 2016, that we thought a concert this spring would be a perfect fit with the imminent opening of the Cody Heritage Museum – we are thrilled to have them here in Cody!”
With the years-long restoration of the historic DeMaris House in downtown Cody now complete -- from roof to foundation, windows to doors, plumbing to lighting -- the Board has been working on completing the unique layout and display designs, signage, object labels and Heritage Gifts shop prior to several opening events this summer. The Board is still actively seeking memorabilia, objects, artifacts, etc. from historic families, businesses and industries [call Lynn J. Houze at 527-7120 for acquisitions]. The proceeds from this benefit concert will go toward opening expenses such as rack cards, postcards, advertising in the Cody Visitors Guide, gift shop hardware/software and products and so on.
There will be an event at the Museum mid-May for supporters and educators before the doors open to the Museum – and if you have been meaning to join the Museum, the information is on our website: www.codyheritagemuseum.org. Cody will again host a Field of Honor in June which will be, as always, another benefit for the Museum. The Grand Opening for the Cody Heritage Museum is slated for July. Watch the museum exterior and the Cody Enterprise for news of upcoming events!
Leave your cares behind, sit back and unwind, spending time at this wonderful benefit concert with the Bar J Wranglers!
