The Montana Brewing Company hosts June 29th Alive After 5 at Skypoint

The Montana Brewing Company hosts the next Alive After 5 on Thursday, June 29th below Skypoint (2nd Ave N & N Broadway). El Wencho, a Bozeman based duo, will play live music on from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.

El Wencho, is a powerhouse duo with 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.  Josh and John are supremely talented musicians and entertainers. Together they form an authentic and charismatic duo that expertly connects with the audience and delivers an engaging and highly addictive musical experience.

 “If you haven’t seen El Wencho perform, an El Wencho Alive After 5 show is a must see. Josh and John are so great to work with and the two really put on a fun show that draws a crowd. I mean, who doesn’t think it’s awesome that they sometimes play bongos and they wrote a song about sugar beets?”
