BIG SKY – When Knoxville, Tenn. band The Black Lillies takes the stage on June 23 for the first Music in the Mountains of the summer, one local business will be kicking off the party in style.

The Hungry Moose Market and Deli, which is sponsoring this first of 10 summer concerts in Big Sky Town Center, wants to give back to the community that gives so much year after year, according to Jackie Robin who, along with her husband Mark, owns The Hungry Moose.

“We went all out for our 20th anniversary two years ago and people still talk about that party,” Jackie said. “We love supporting the Arts Council [of Big Sky] summer concert series and thought it would be fun to make our sponsorship a community event.”

Festivities will include complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks, a sampling of sweet and savory finger foods prepared by the Hungry Moose chefs and bakers plus a host of fun summer swag. Jackie says to also keep an eye out for free cotton candy and fun kids’ activities. – J.T.O.
