— Get down to Pioneer Park as the last in the Summer Concert Series will feature some serious Montana stompgrass!

The Dodgy Mountain Men out of Missoula will be featured for the last in the Grangeville Summer Concert Series, Thursday, Aug. 2.

The band is said to “pack a bite,” mixing the rhythms of bluegrass, the soul of the blues and the energy of rock ‘n’ roll with a plethora of other musical traditions to create a unique electro-acoustic experience. The group’s genre-bending experimentation and passion for American roots traditions weave together to emphasize their lyrical storytelling, creating a musical frontier rife with empty Mason jars, outlaws, gypsy women and cold Montana storms. Add three distinct frontmen, a penchant for sonic exploration and live performances that build to a fever pitch, and you’ve got a concoction that will make moonshiners proud and compel dancers to wear out the soles of their shoes.

DMM released their debut album, Stronger than Death, in 2012, and their follow-up record, Changing Lanes, is a testament to the evolution of the group from a sideways folk outfit to a fully-recognized band pushing the borders of Americana. Dodgy Mountain Men has toured from coast to coast, bringing their energetic sets to festivals across the USA.

Band members include Eric Boss on his guitar; Jed Nussbaum on mandolin and electric guitar; Josh Clinger on bass; and Christian Gutierez on percussion.

The concert is set for 6 p.m., in the Grangeville Pioneer (city) Park. Bring your own lawn chairs, blankets and picnic dinner. Dogs are not allowed in the park. Donations will be taken to help with costs of the series. Grangeville Farmers’ Market vendors will be there selling a variety of items during the concert.

The series is sponsored by Grangeville Arts, Inc., and the Grangeville Chamber of Commerce.
