"Every year the Bar J Wranglers pack the theatre for an event that has truly become a cherished Logan tradition," said Wally Bloss, executive director for the Cache Valley Center for the Arts, in a press release. "The Bar J Wranglers mix up their holiday concert with a little cowboy poetry, stellar musicianship, and a healthy dose of down-home ranch humor."Excerpt from the press release: Well known in Cache County and beyond, the cowpokes hailing from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, present a show that is two parts music, two parts stand-up comedy and all out entertainment with a holiday twist. This concert is one of those events that will sell out. If you have waited, there are a few tickets left! The Bar J Wranglers will be making their 13th appearance in Logan as part of the Cache Valley Center for the Arts 2012-2013 Presenting Season. Some folks call it a western music show; some call it a stand-up comedy show with masterful cowboy music; others call it the best musical experience in the west. As soon as the Bar J Wranglers take the stage, listeners leave behind their busy life and settle into a time long ago – a time of the singing cowboy. The group was formed in Jackson Hole, Wyoming in 1983 by Babe Humphrey and has been passed down to his sons Scott & Bryan.
The band has several UT concerts scheduled for December in places such as Orem, Vernal and St. George. For a list, go to http://www.barjchuckwagon.com/ConcertSchedule.html
