Photo: Randy Rand of Autograph | Bob Wellborn (Jim Hyatt Band) on Facebook (4/24/22): We just lost a great Northern Colorado musician. Grant McIntosh was the leader of the bands Big Twang Theory and Wild Country in Northern Colorado. Both bands always drew large crowds playing 2-steps, polkas, waltzes, and cha-cha music. He will be missed by so many of his followers. ~ Bob Wellborn
