A new stage and live music at Choppers in Big Sky

Choppers Grub and Pub in the Big Sky Town Center was busy this off season. Contractors have been expanding the bar area to accommodate a dance floor for larger live performances. Removing the wall and fireplace left of the bar will open up floor space on the lower level next to the bar for the audience.

Bands will perform from the raised area formerly part of the casino lounge. The Johnsen Family, who own and run Choppers, already have great acts lined up for this summer.

On Sunday, August 7, alternative country- rock favorites The Gourds will perform live at 9:30 p.m. This Austin, Texas based band is famous for their high-energy live performances. The Gourds’ catalog of originals is a mix of country, bluegrass and Americana. If we’re lucky, they might even play their famous bluegrass interpretation of Snoop Dogg’s hit “Gin and Juice,” which has become a classic in its own right. Check out the band at thegourds.com.
