The Clintons are scheduled to open for the 13th annual Music on Main concert series this summer in Historic Downtown Bozeman.
Music on Main is hosted by the Downtown Bozeman Association whose mission is to contribute to the well-being, growth and vitality of downtown Bozeman, according to their website.
The event kicks off on Thursday, June 27 on Main Street from Rouse Avenue to Black Avenue. The music will last from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. and continue every Thursday evening through August 15.
This will be the fourth year the Downtown Bozeman Association has selected The Clintons as Music on Main’s season opener. This Bozeman rock band has traveled throughout the Northwest, but usually play in venues hosting 200-600 people.
“We always feel like we know everyone in the room even when lots of people are seeing us for the first time,” The Clintons stated on their website.
The band has a loyal following in Bozeman. Their last album “Sellout,” which was released last year was 100 percent funded by fans raising $21,141 in only 30 days.
“I love The Clintons,” said Jennifer Waters, a fan of the rock group. I especially love hearing them play at Music on Main every year because it means summer has officially started. Life just doesn’t get any sweeter than dancing, drinking, sunshine and live music in Bozeman.”
Music on Main is one of the few events in Bozeman that has an open alcohol container waiver allowing anyone over the age of 21 to have an open container of alcohol in the event area. The event is family friendly and will host several food vendors and local non-profit booths as well.
The rest of line up for the summer event has yet to be announced. For more information on Music on Main visit www.downtownbozeman.org. Or for more information on The Clintons, visit their website at http://www.clintonsband.com.
