Vibe Quartet & some locally farmed improv at Main St. pizzeria
Along with its handcrafted pies and wide selection of regional brews, Red Tractor Pizza plays host to independent musicians and other events throughout the week. Here’s a look at what’s coming up.
Enjoy a Saturday night done right with The Vibe Quartet on January 12th at 7pm. The improv quartet fuses a variety of instrumental music ranging from jazz standards to original funk tunes to instrumental popular tunes. The group is a Bozeman area favorite and is not to be missed!
Cap your Sunday Funday with the Lazy Owl String Band on January 13th at 6pm. A diverse group of musicians, the Lazy Owls’ influences range from jazz and blues to punk rock. However varied their influences, they’re undeniably steeped in an old-timey traditional style. The group encapsulates an ethic of hard driving, whiskey drinking, boot-stomping music with infectious energy that’s sure to get you moving. The band’s repertoire is heavily rooted in original material that pays homage to the tradition from which it was begotten.
Music Monday sees Jeff Peterson on January 14th at 6:30pm. He’s the guitar-playing half of the Road Agents, an Americana duo that tours the breweries, hot springs, and saloons of Southwest Montana. Peterson’s songs tend to focus on roads, dogs, firewood the desert, as well as various bits of Montana, each with a strong rhythm developed to compete for attention in crowded and loud taprooms. In August the Road Agents, comprised also of Helena-based mandolin player Justin Ringsak, released Dreams of Stingrays, Roadrunners & Hangovers, a six-song EP of Peterson’s original songs.
Howard Beall & the Fake News entertain on Saturday, January 19th at 7pm. The group brings people together by playing groove-based music, specifically pulling from the jazz, rock, and funk genres. The band plays a blend of original compositions, standards, and modern songs with the intent of creating fresh sounds while still respecting the heritage and language of those before them.
