The Great Falls Public Library will host a free concert on Tuesday, July 9, 2024, featuring the Great Falls-based Western act Pollo Loco from 7 pm to 9 pm.

The band features Lonnie Johnson on lead guitar/vocals, Chuck Fulcher on bass/vocals, and Jeff Christiansen on rhythm guitar/vocals.

In 2016, the band took first place at the Red Ants Pants Festival "Emerging Artist Competition" in White Sulphur Springs.

The concert is one of several in the library's Summer Music Series.

“Just come by, its free music, free show, what’s not to love about that?” said Jake Sorich, communications coordinator for the library.

With music ranging from rock and folk to hip-hop and jazz, there is enough to keep people like Laura Hodges coming back year after year.

“It’s a beautiful place to sit, and the music’s often good, and it’s a nice time of day, and I see people that I know,” said Laura, who has been attending summer music in the park for the past five years.

Here is the schedule:

  • July 9: Pollo Loco
  • July 16: Brandon Hale and the Dirty Shame
  • July 23: Supaman
  • August 6: Little Jane and the Pistol Whips
  • August 13: The Lucky Valentines
  • August 20: John Floridis
  • August 27: Sally Jo and Friends Blue Grass

The event is free and open to all, so bring a chair or picnic blanket and say hello.
”You can just relax and come and go as you please,” Sorich said, “So it’s a very relaxing, just nice, summer atmosphere.”

The concerts will also feature food trucks. A news release from the library says that people will need to bring their own blankets or chairs to these events.

The concerts will be in the small park behind the library (301 Second Avenue North). In the event of bad weather, the performances will take place in the Cordingley Room.
