PINKY AND THE FLOYD – WISH YOU WERE HERE + 60’S VIGNETTE
APRIL 13TH & 14TH

The last time we played the Rialto Bozeman was the very first show in the newly renovated venue (Jan 2018). Here’s a taste of that night (featuring copyright safe Floyd-ish music courtesy of our own Jake Fleming! 😆).
Friday & Saturday nights, we get to do it again!!! This time featuring some crazy visual graphics technology, a super dialed state-of-the-art sound & light system, and more music than we’ve ever tackled. We hope you can join us for this momentous occasion!!
TICKET UPDATE:
6pm, Wish You Were Here/60’s: less than 100 left. This will sell out in advance, so get those tickets now!
10pm, Animals/90’s: still a bunch left including some Mezzanine seats. Tickets will likely be available at the door, but we don’t suggest waiting.
TOMORROW: Meddle is 1/2 sold and Darkside is nearly sold out, only 50 tickets left. HURRY!
See you soon, BOZEMAN!!!

with SPECIAL GUEST MARIO MINOR JR.
Growing up on and around the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation, Lakota/Nakoda music artist, Mario Miner Jr. developed an undying connection with the blues and rock & roll music at a very young age. Wielding a 4-string guitar named “Howlin Duke”, which he built out of other broken guitars and junk parts that were laying around his house, Mario infuses his cultural roots, storytelling, a strong passion for playing music, along with his humorous demeanor and molds it into a unique live show that people of all ages can enjoy.
