Looking for live music tonight? Butte, America will be rockin’ all weekend.
If you want live music, you will have all that and then some this weekend here in Butte.
RUSS NELSON AT CINZ BAR, JOHN MONTOYA AT THE HELSINKI
Russ Nelson will be at Cinz Bar on Mercury starting at 8pm tonight. Russ along with his uncle, John Montoya (more on him later) have re-defined live music in Butte over the last couple of decades as solo artists. Their key? Through talent, ingenuity and practical engineering they somehow can make a one-man show sound like a full band. Oh, and they're both damn good. See for yourself. Check Russell out at Cinz and don't miss John tonight at the Helsinki.
KEN RICH BAND TONIGHT AND TOMORROW AT THE BUTTE DEPOT
Ken Rich is back, folks, and he's bringing his full band to the newly renovated Butte Depot at 818 S. Arizona. Ken has been on the road to recovery after a health scare last year and it is great to have him back on the scene as he is a living legend in Butte, plain and simple. The talent level of this band is off the charts, their instrumentation is second to none and these guys put on the most complete show in town. They will be going on around 9:30 tonight and tomorrow and you can count on them rocking into the early morning hours.
