Barrel Stove Combo - Full Jazz Concert on the Press Floor

On Friday, June 7th, Barrel Stove Combo joined us for a lunchtime show on our press floor to wrap up Season One of Press Play. Rebecca Nelson on flute and tenor saxophone, Eric Gates playing an eight-string guitar, and Vinnie Rannazzisi on the drums brought the jazz to the Daily Inter Lake. It was a free-flowing improvisational dance of original jazz tunes; and the trio's long-standing friendship with each other was palpable.

Halladay & Rob Quist - Full Concert

On Friday, Mat 3rd, Halladay and Rob Quist joined us for a lunchtime show on our press floor. The father-daughter duo shared love letters to Montana and a few puns; their family talent spans across generations.

Singer-songwriter Rob founded the Mountain Mission Wood Band and has had his songs sung by Michael Martin Murphy and Loretta Lynn. He has appeared with musical acts Heart, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Jimmy Buffett, and Dolly Parton, among others.

When Halladay — a music talent in her own right — and Rob aren’t crooning a country melody with trio partner Clara Weick, they’re acting in movies, playing shows, and creating a plan to bring more music to Montana children.
