McCormick Cafe and our Downtown Billings team are preparing to throw the eighth and final Alive After 5 of the summer, this Thursday, August 4, at Montana Ave. and N, 23rd St. from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.
South Carolina native W.C. Huntley is a singer/songwriter & guitarist currently based in Bozeman, Montana. By combining his Travis-picking guitar style and soulful country voice, W.C. provides the listener with a unique take on traditional Country & Western music. He is inspired by country singer/songwriter greats like John Prine, Guy Clark, and Merle Haggard.
Thursday, August 4th, W.C. Huntley pairs his talents with those of southwestern Montana musician, Marcedes Carroll.
With a guitar in tow, Marcedes bends Americana melodies to her stylistic storytelling. She released her debut record She’s Pretty, Vol. 1 in the Fall of 2019 and She’s Pretty, Vol. 2 in May of 2020. She’s Pretty is a collection of songs that encompass life, love and loss in the American West. Countless hours have been spent writing, charting, rehearsing and performing songs that reflect a passion for the poetic experiences she herself and others have gone through. Both W.C. and Marcedes play a mix of originals as well as lively covers you are likely to know.
Admission is free to the public, however, those 21 and older wishing to consume alcohol must purchase a wristband for $2 at one of the two purple wristband tents. A limited number of $10 V.I.P wristbands can be purchased by calling the DBA office at (406) 294-5060 ahead of time. The McCormick Alive After 5 will have a special shaded V.I.P. area with seating, tables, free ice-cold water, and easy access to one of the event’s outdoor bar locations.
Alive After 5 is coordinated annually by our Downtown Billings Alliance team. Valley Credit Union is the producing sponsor of the 2022 Alive After 5 concert series. Their annual sponsorship helps the DBA book the many local, regional, and national bands. This event would not be as successful without our other supporting sponsors: TDS Fiber, Planet 106.7, Zone 96.3, Classic Hits 105.9, KSKY 94.1, KBEAR 98.1 and event sponsors First Interstate Bank and PureWest Christie’s International Real Estate in Billings.
