3rd Annual Montrose Saloon Music Fest


helloheather and I went to the Montrose Saloon yesterday for an afternoon and evening (noon 'till seven pm) of bluegrass, folk, rock, country, and a little a cappella.

The event was actually a benefit for a local independent radio station: WLUW. http://www.wluw.org/main.cfm. With 100 watts of power, those of us outside the city had never even heard of the station, but really we were there for the music. The lineup sounded interesting, so we went.

Our friend Dan alerted us to the show and we met him and friend/former band-mate Ellen at the bar. The venue was nice, as the Montrose Saloon has a large backyard beer garden with tables and chairs. Between the music, a few food items, and the beer, a great time was had.

Of the artists that played, I'd have to say Cornmeal were my favorite (their energy was spectacular) followed closely by REO Chuckwagon.

Photos from the event are here: http://www.bernhard.us/photos/montrose-2005

The four of us rounded the evening off with a meal at a local pizza/mexican restaurant down the street from the bar. All in all, a great day.

Current Music: QCD: [28 -5:14] Lemon Jelly - The Staunton Lick

The 2006 event will take place at The Montrose Saloon on August 13th!If you end up attending, stop by the WLUW booth and say HOWDY! My husband and I are DJs at WLUW and will be running the WLUW booth most of the day. We're the crazy couple with the crazy-colored hair.

Hey cool! Thanks for the links to the photos. If we're feeling very adventurous, we'll try and make this years show, but we have a 3 week old (currently) so we'll have to see :) :)

If we don't make it, hope everyone has a good time. Last year's show was a lot of fun!

it's a family friendly event ... people bring kids all the time! I know for certain of at least one almost 3 year old who's going! He's the son of one of the bartenders.
