The Flying W Wranglers found themselves out of work after the Waldo Canyon Fire burned down the Flying W Ranch in 2012.
Since then, two former Wranglers have joined Latigo, a local modern country band, said Joe Donaldson, the band’s founder. Fiddler Tony Ludiker joined last year, and bass player and vocalist Wayne Humphrey joined a couple of months ago.
The group consists of professional musicians in their first amateur band, Donaldson says, playing around the city. Next weekend (May 23-24) they’ll be at Cleats Bar and Grill, 6624 Delmonico Drive.
