Every family has their ‘thing’, some families live to drag the trailer out to the camping spot, some dream of the lake, and some are constantly on the move, traveling far and wide. For my girls and me, (other than 1 exception) our time away is centered around concerts.

Music has always been near the center of my wife and my relationship. My daughter started going to shows and festivals with us over the years, and it is really our happy place.

My daughter’s first show was the Decemberists in Missoula at Big Sky Brewing, she was… 8ish? Bringing a kid anywhere you worry. Are they going to enjoy themselves, are they going to make it impossible for us to enjoy ourselves, and of course are they going to pester everyone within earshot?

If I felt like bringing a kid to a concert was tough, it was destroyed by the idea of bringing my parents to a concert. The last time Lyle Lovett and his Large Band played Kettlehouse, 2019 I believe, I thought it could be fun to bring my parents to Kettlehouse for the first time, and also give them their first Lyle show.

Holy hell, I was a wreck. Our seats weren’t together, which didn’t help, and I kept looking over at them like some helicopter parent making sure my kids were getting their fair share of the monkey bars. I swear I have never felt that apprehensive with my daughter, and maybe that says more about my parenting than anything.

Lyle Lovett is one of those artists I try and talk everyone into seeing, even if I have to drag them to shows myself. Whether he is sitting down with John Hiatt, his acoustic group, or the full Large Band is with him, every show is incredibly entertaining. He is one of the best storytellers alive, and every time he steps on stage it is a treat.

Lyle announced he is coming back to Kettlehouse on July 22, 2023, with the Large Band in tow. The level of talent in the Large Band is off the charts, if you haven’t seen them, you are going to be floored.

Lyle Lovett is on my short list of ‘never miss’ artists. My bride and I will certainly be there in July, more than likely with my daughter, and yes, probably my parents.

See you in Bonner.
