Add to Calendar 5/27/2022 5/27/2022 America/Denver Live at Jimmy's Roadhouse: Quenby Quenby Iandiorio was introduced to the Country/Americana scene during her time in LA from `97-`09. But after years of enjoying her friends from out front, she decided it was time to have a go at it from up on stage. Late in `07 she picked up the guitar in earnest which was followed very quickly by recording her first song and shortly after by compiling her first band. By `09, Q’s desire to take the band all the way made a move to Texas inevitable, so she and original drummer, Clint Short (Shurman, Stonehoney, Weldon Henson), pulled up stakes and relocated to Austin. Since then she has made four successful tours of the Northern and Northwestern U.S. resulting in her latest move to Livingston, MT from where she books and maintains a full-time performing and touring schedule, either with her country band or as a solo acoustic act.

Add to Calendar 6/18/2022 6/18/2022 America/Denver Live at Jimmy's Roadhouse: The Teccas Scott grew up in a very musical family with his grandfather, who was blind from age nine, was a local musician in Livingston Montana, playing the piano, drums and singing in the Rhythm Ramblers. His father, the man who taught him to play the guitar at the age of 5, also was a guitar player and singer. Growing up in small towns in Montana has its challenges, but it has also giving Scott the life needed to reach for his dreams of being a singer/ songwriter. Having two musically talented daughters, it has sparked the idea of performing together as a family, but as fate would have it, only one daughter, Kayla, has shown the desire to chase his crazy dream of being a full time musician.

Kayla started her musical interest in 6th grade where she took up the violin. Although her desire for music was rich, she moved on from the violin and on to the guitar. In her High School years, she was heavily involved in the school choir. When she was 16, Kayla entered a talent show at her High School. As she was just getting started with playing guitar, she didn't feel ready to accompany herself, so of course, Dad was quick to jump in. Kayla, upon graduating from high school, went on to culinary school, before jumping in with both feet and traveling all over Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon playing music in local bars, Brewery's and private functions. Their unique blend of family harmonies draws their followers into a musical journey. From their renditions of Journey's Don't stop believing to their original Whiskey in Heaven, the listener is taken through the facets of time and touched by memories of the familiar songs they cover. Their original songs are written from personal memories and life experiences that touch you in so many different ways.

Add to Calendar 8/20/2022 8/20/2022 America/Denver The Nitty Gritty Off Road Race We’ve moved the race up a few weeks to reduce conflicts with other events. This off-road marathon will be held at Red Lodge Mountain Resort. In its sixth year running, the Nitty Gritty is starting to earn quite the reputation. And that is, that its, one nitty, gritty marathon with LOTS of climbing all on dirt roads and single track trails.

With a September date, your summer of running and racing will be what prepares you for this “battle royal” event. Form a six, three or two runner relay team to tackle the marathon, or if you have the grit, try the solo hot lap, half, or full marathon!

The Nitty Gritty embodies our motto the most out of any race: low key, high elevation. While the terrain is challenging, everything else is lowkey and there is distance for all abilities. Dogs are welcome to run with you on or off leash, the beer and snacks might be the biggest draw….second only to the awesome people! Small but mighty, this race is for those who love trail running and everything that comes with it! Bring your bear spray, camp chair, and good attitude.

So lay the peer pressure on your friends, because its time to get down to The Nitty Gritty!
