We were pleased to have Steve Martin come to our town for a concert with the BlueGrass band, Steep Canyon Rangers. He is a phenomenal performer and in his own words, a “Renaissance Man.” It is easy to agree with him when you hear his banjo talent, belly-laugh at his jokes, recall the numerous films he has starred in, and the books he has written.
He and his band humored many baby boomers in our town. Just waiting to get into the venue, we commented on how every Boomer in Missoula was in attendance. The concert was held in our AA baseball stadium, and the stands were full. Being the concert throwbacks that we are, only the lawn (aka mosh pit) would do for us!
Here is a taste of the highly entertaining evening. For more information on his music, books and musings, check out Steve’s site. Here is a brief clip of our evening that mostly highlights the beauty of the venue and gives you a taste of the great music we danced to.
