Chico Saloon pours up top-shelf songsters every Friday & Saturday
Not quite camping weather, but that doesn’t make us any less antsy this time of year! Transition into Montana’s favorite months with a weekend getaway to Chico Hot Springs. With fantastic live entertainment in the Saloon every Friday and Saturday night, you can kick up your feet – and soak them too. Here’s a look at what’s headed to the Paradise Valley watering hole.
Tsunami Funk will take the stage Friday and Saturday, April 19th and 20th. The Bozeman-favorite group always packs the dance floor with Funk/R&B-rocking grooves. Tsunami Funk plays tunes from artists like Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams, Bruno Mars, Red Hot Chili Peppers, James Brown, Earth Wind & Fire, Sly & the Family Stone, Kool & the Gang, Van Morrison, Steely Dan, Bob Marley, and many more! Tsunami Funk is Eddie T, Luke Flansburg, Nate Anderson, David Charles, and Isaiah Morales.
Helena-based Ten Years Gone bring shows on Friday and Saturday, April 26th and 27th. The band is all about performing great, danceable music – everything from classic rock to alternative, funk, country, pop, and dance. They always bring a crowd and an excellent sound. Ten Years Gone is comprised of Ben Fandry (guitar, vocals), Robert Doughty (guitar, vocals), Dennis Ferriter (bass, vocals), Ken Nelson and Mark Walker (keys, vocals), as well as Jeremy Slead (drums, vocals).
El Wencho rides again! The energetic duo return to Chico with a pair of performances Friday and Saturday, May 3rd and 4th. For most people, the image of an “acoustic duo” conjures images of two soft spoken musicians singing folk rock and hippie jam songs. This is not the case with The Wench. Two original members of The Clintons, John and Josh joke, “we’re half the band, twice the party!” The guys are no strangers to throwing a rocking good time. Their show is a hotdish or “badasserole” of musical genres and style.
Chico Saloon music begins at 9pm, unless otherwise noted. Chico Hot Springs is located in Pray, 20 miles south of Livingston. Come sip, soak, and swing! For more information, visit www.chicohotsprings.com. •
