Insufficient Funds - 5:30-6:30 PM

Formed in the Winter of 2010, founding members, Matt Winters and Al Forgey set out to play the songs and recreate the sounds that were tied to their childhood memories. The result: Country and Southern Rock standards made famous by artists like Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, ZZ Top, Steve Miller Band, The Kentucky Headhunters, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Brooks and Dunn, Randy Houser, Merle Haggard, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Steve Earle and Blake Shelton, just to name a few. Over the past several years, they have evolved into a group that plays what the crowd wants-without straying from their roots. With the unique Country guitar sounds from lead guitarist Matt Winters, the Classic Rock influenced Bass rhythms of Blake Mendenhall, to the distinctive Country-driven vocals of Lead Singer and Drummer Al Forgey, Insufficient Funds Band appeals to many audiences. They have played shows that have taken them all over the Northwestern U.S.. Some of their accolades include opening for Nationally-known acts like the Certified Triple Platinum Country supergroup Lonestar, Smith Music Group Recording Artist Bart Crow Band, Torrez Music Group’s Shotgun Rider, NBC’s The Voice Runner-Up Meghan Lindsey and North Dakota Natives, 32 Below. They have also headlined the Jack Daniels & XL Country 100.7 Country Showdown in Bozeman, Montana. With 80+ dates booked every year, they have become a sought after staple to many Montana Country music audiences including Street Dances, County Fairs and Honky Tonks.

Blue Tattoo is a rock band that delivers hard-hitting classic rock covers... with attitude! They bring you high-energy classic rock that will have you on your feet and screaming for more! You're not going to want to miss these guys!

Devon Worley Band - 9-10:30 PM

Crowds roar during their rousing live gigs at country music festivals across the U.S. Across the pond in the UK, fans inside packed rock clubs stomp their approval for an incendiary set that combusts with memorable original songs written by the alluring lead vocalist, her three band mates and occasionally theMinnesota-based singer’s mother and band manager. Welcome to the shape- shifting worlds of the Devon Worley Band (DWB).

Hitting at a time “when music genres are blurring – and maybe don’t even matter anymore” – the Devon Worley Band might show up on Spotify, or your favorite streaming platform, as country, rock, country-rock, or just rock, or retro rock. The truth is DWB is the most lovable bunch of mainstream music outliers that you ever heard! Led by 23-year-old Devon Worley, the group is set to release a tight, diverse and fresh new five-song EP called Tea Time for Thieves. It builds smartly on the band’s 2013 debut album Silver Creek (winner of two Independent Country Music Association Awards for Best New Band and Best Video) and the superb 2017 follow up, The Sunrise Resistance.

Recorded in Nashville – “where no one knows what to do with us, including our producer Matt McClure” (Kellie Pickler, Lee Brice, Lucas Hoge and others) — Tea Time’s first single, “No Fool,” showcases Worley’s commanding countrified vocals as she wields her voice like a lead rock axe and lays down the law. Having sung with the Minnesota Opera (!) as a pre-teen and already a Black Belt in Karate, Worley possesses the musical maturity and deadly focus of singers twice her age. And you can catch a glimpse of her strong, old soul sensibility as she wisely navigates the diverging roads inside her head and heart throughout the rest of songs.

The EP’s plaintive ballad, “Leave Me Slow,” sounds like a certifiable hit in rock or country, while “Black River Magic” could well be a Stevie Nicks’ deep-track pop gem. The hard rock slow burner, “Wytch Hunt,” and the old school notions of “Broken Record” demonstrate how five-plus years working together has made the DWB a finely honed music unit capable of pivoting to any genre with grit or grace – and no apologies.
