Moe Bandy

Country music legend Moe Bandy has come a long way from his bull riding days in Texas. Not to mention his years as a sheet metal worker by day and playing Honkey Tonks at night in and around his hometown of San Antonio, Texas. In the mid-seventies when the country pop Kenny Rogers, John Denver and the outlaw sound of Waylon and Willie was at the rage, along came the traditionalist Moe Bandy.

The Texas singer with twin fiddles and steel guitar in the band kept Texas-style Honkey Tonk music alive, but it wasn't easy. In 1972 Moe met record producer Ray Baker on a hunting trip and convinced him to listen to some demo tapes he had made. Baker agreed to produce Moe if he was willing to pay for recording session. Moe agreed and out of that session came Moe's first hit song "I just Started Hatin Cheatin' Songs Today". GRC records picked up the song and released it nationally where it became a top 20 hit and that was just the beginning. Moe followed up with "It Was Always So Easy (To Find An Unhappy Woman)" and his first #1 hit "Bandy The Rodeo Clown". His songs never strayed far from the traditionally Honky Tonk fare. Loving, cheating, drinking and patriotic songs formed the core of his music.

Moe continues to perform to packed houses all over the world. More than anything else Moe loves to perform for his countless fans. Be sure to check out Moe’s website because he just might be coming to a town near you!

Sgt. John Ordway of the Lewis and Clark Expedition with Arch Ellwein

Ellwein brings Sgt. John Ordway to life in a first-person portrayal set in 1813. First Sergeant Ordway was the only member of the Lewis and Clark expedition to record a journal entry for every single day of the journey from Camp DuBois or Wood River until their return. Seven years after returning, Ordway is a farmer in Missouri Territory, tilling the ground deeded to him from the U.S. government because of his service on the expedition. Learn about his perspective as he reminisces about "...the greatest adventure of my life." Later the audience has the opportunity to ask questions of the sergeant and then of the actor.

Melissa Forrette

I grew up in the mountains in California, before moving to Montana at 18 years old to work on ranches.  While doing so, I found inspiration to start writing music. My uncle gave me his old guitar in 2009 and I haven’t put it down since. I have now gotten the opportunity to travel to Nashville several times and have worked with some of the best of the best.  Growing up on good country music and with idols like Merle Haggard, I try to stay true to my roots and make songs that can’t be confused with anything else but country. Last year I won song of the year for my original called “I Made him your man” which has recently been pitched to Little Big Town as well. I will be performing in June at the CMA fest in Nashville, as well as Great Falls state fair in July.

The group The Crowdthinners was formed in the 1980's and disbanded after New Years Eve at 2015. One member retired, another joined, and we changed our name to "Plug Nickel". It's a four member group, that has opened countless shows for national acts such as Gene Watson, and T.G. Shepherd. We play mostly traditional country music, some new, and some old time rock and roll. Also, we do some original material. We do alot of clowning around on stage and have a ball. We like to involve the crowd in our shows.

Josiah Loven provides the lead vocals, and supplies lead guitar and keys. Jeremy Erickson holds down the bottom end on bass and Jake Principe keeps the time on the drums.
