100th Year Rodeo Anniversary Concert • June 28th, 2024

Brought to You by the Livingston Roundup Association

 

Celebrating the Rodeo’s 100th year, Livingston Roundup Association (LRA) is presenting a day packed full of music in the arena. Surrounding the main event, there will be a mechanical bull, booths, face painting, food trucks, and much more.


Headlining artist and CMA-award winning John Michael Montgomery is making the Rodeo Concert part of his farewell 2024-2025 tour. Montgomery recently announced his retirement from touring, saying, “Please join me on my journey as I say goodbye to the road life.”


In a reflective statement, Montgomery continued, “It’s been a wonderful run for me from the beginning over 30 years ago in 1992, when my first song, Life’s a Dance, was released to radio. Back then, I think either it was a 45 vinyl or on cassette tape. CDs had not quite taken over yet, and the Internet was still in its infancy. I’ve been fortunate and blessed to be able to do what I love for so many years.”


Montgomery’s hits include, I Love the Way You Love Me, Sold, I Can Love You Like That, Life’s a Dance, The Little Girl, I Swear, Rope the Moon, Letters from Home, to name a few.


Opening for Montgomery is the ACM/CMA nominated band, McBride &The Ride. Their musicianship and combined star power are a force to be reckoned with. They have honed their “tried-and-true ’90s harmonies” (People Magazine), twangy steel and driving grooves, into an exciting, live set that will be stone-cold country music at its finest. Just a few of their hits include: Just One Night, Can I Count on You, Same Old Star, and No More Cryin’. Their harmonies are like heaven.


LRA starts the afternoon off at 1:30 pm with the local, musical powerhouse artists, Stephanie Quayle, Jessta James, and Levi Blom.


Stephanie Quayle— “As an artist and Bozeman native, she knows all the right ways to use her voice to deliver the emotional punch of the lyrics so that they tug on our heartstrings. But as a songwriter, her keen know-how has led her to release songs that are very necessary right to balance out the negative and selfish back and forth we see happening in the world every day.” —Review Written By: Jeffrey Kurtis


Jessta James— “Country singer and songwriter Jessta James grew up in Bozeman. He was exposed to classic outlaw country as a child, then added Southern hard rock as an influence while he was in high school, and discovered hip-hop after he had graduated. He began a career in the construction business. He didn’t write his first official song until he was 24 years old, and by then, firmly in hip-hop mode. Jessta built a home studio and began writing and recording songs from beats and his own free-styled lyrics, hitting a stage to perform whenever he could.” —Biography by Steve Leggett.


Levi Blom— Levi lives in Bozeman and performs in a high-energy, original country-style band with a little rock and roll mixed in. They create a great party atmosphere. The band has played for many venues throughout Montana, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, and Idaho. “Pour Decisions, sometimes you just gotta sit down and write a song about watching your buddy make bad choices. This is that song.” —Levi Blom
