Concerts Taking Shape For Stampede Week
Concerts are being finalized for the Wolf Point Wild Horse Stampede in Wolf Point on July 5-8.
Kyle Shobe will perform at the Wild Horse Saloon after the ranch rodeo on Wednesday, July 5.
According to his website, Kyle Shobe and the Walk ‘Em Boys have entertained crowds across the West with their unique brand of country music for the past 14 years.
The Walk ‘Em Boys travel the region playing concerts and dances at fairs, conventions and community events. Shobe has released three studio albums, most recently Out Here, released in the fall of 2021.
Brandon Jones will perform in the Wild Horse Saloon after the rodeo on Saturday, July 8.
Jones has made a name for himself as one of the Midwest’s premiere entertainers. In the last decade, the red-bearded Rapid City, S.D., native went from strumming in his garage and a regional appearance at the Texaco Country Showdown to opening for some of country music’s legendary acts.
In 2019, Brandon Jones released his debut self-titled EP with Grammy Award winning engineer and producer Mills Logan, featuring Black Hills Back Road and Kiss Me All Night, which had considerable play on regional country radio and YouTube, with his most popular music video being Black Hills Back Road. The album release led to The Brandon Jones Band winning Rapid City Journal’s “Best Band in The Black Hills” and New Artist of The Year by the Rocky Mountain Country Music Awards.
In addition, there will be street dance concerts on Thursday, July 6, and Friday, July 7.
During the planning committee meeting held last week, it will announced that author Theresa Nichols Schuster will be at Roosevelt County Library for a book talk and signing on Saturday, July 8, starting at 10:30 a.m.
The library will also have a giant map of Montana for people to observe during the weekend. Money Monster packets will be given.
Artists are encouraged to being a vendor for Art in the Park during Saturday, July 8.
Other activities being planned for that Saturday include the Human Stampede run, a car show, a chairity and yard art show, a HORSE basketball shooting and bed races.
The fundraising auction went very well with a profit of about $20,000. Photographs donated by Clint Whitmer was one of the highlights.
