‘Music on Main’ returns to Downtown Bozeman w/ summer series
The Downtown Bozeman Association is proud to present the 19th Annual Music on Main Summer Concert Series in historic Downtown Bozeman. Music on Main festivities will take place on Main Street between Rouse and Black Ave. on Thursday evenings, June 27th through August 15th. The music begins at 7pm and runs until 8:30pm.
Opening the summer series on June 27th is Paige & The People’s Band whose high-energy mix of funk, soul and rock will quite literally have Bozemanites dancing in the street. The nine-piece, horn-powered and vocally charged group is quickly becoming a mainstay of the Montana music scene, showcasing the sound of ‘70s soul with a modern twist. The backup vocalists and horn section make the band reminiscent of groups like Cold Blood or Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings but with a contemporary feel. They pride themselves on playing diverse music from several genres, all infused with a generous dose of soul in every song.
The band dresses to impress, giving their performances a sense of occasion, then blasts the roof off with their big band, powerhouse sound. Members of Paige & The People’s Band have shared the stage with such musical legends as B.B. King, The Doobie Brothers, and Lyle Lovett. They have toured the United States and Europe and are bringing what they’ve loved and learned back to this electrifying group.
Future Music on Main events this summer include Tris Munsick & the Innocents on July 4th, The Dusty Pockets on July 11th, and Jameson & the Sordid Seeds on July 18th. Lauren Morrow entertains on July 25th, followed by Dead Winter Carpenters on August 1st, and The Rad Trads on August 8th. The Outer Vibe is set to close out the series on August 15th.
Bring the kids from 6:30–8pm for the Coca Cola “Kids’ Zone” on South Bozeman Ave. which will feature bouncy houses, hula hooping, and more! Grab a bite to eat from one of the many rotating food vendors, step into a few of the downtown stores that’ll be open late, and of course, enjoy outstanding live music from popular local and touring bands. While Music on Main features an open container waiver, attendees are reminded that NO glass and aluminum containers or coolers are allowed in the event area. These are smoke and vape-free, family friendly evenings. Please leave the pets at home.
