July 11th Alive After 5: Brings El Wencho, to the stage under Skypoint

Hooligan’s Sports Bar hosts the next Alive After 5, on Thursday July 11th, on the streets below Skypoint (2nd Ave N & N Broadway). The July 11th band is none other than the Bozeman based powerhouse duo, El Wencho.

The 2024 Alive After 5 series is presented by our team at the Downtown Billings Association (DBA) and our presenting sponsor Valley Credit Union. The series’ weekly summer concerts takes place outdoors at a different downtown location Thursday evenings from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm, June 6 to July 25, 2024 (with the expectation of Thursday, July 4).


Alive After 5 is an all ages event and admission is free to the public. Those 21 and older wishing to consume alcohol must purchase a $3 wristband at one of the Purple DBA tents at the event.

The revenue generated through Alive After 5 wristband sales fund a number of things for the Business Improvement District (B.I.D.) like the flower baskets, public art projects, landscaping projects, and free community events like the parades, chalk on the walk, and more.

meet tHE BAND

El Wencho has a big sound that relates the Montana lifestyle through immersive lyrics, catchy melodies and driving rhythms. Their authentic music is an eclectic fusion of genres that draws on sonic elements from red dirt rock, blues, country, Americana and polyrhythmic Latin percussion. Together, Josh and John form an authentic and charismatic duo that expertly connects with the audience and delivers an engaging and highly addictive musical experience. We can’t forget to mention that John and Josh are also just the nicest guys and always super gracious to be included in our series’ lineup. Their shows are fun and energetic and get the crowed dancing.
