Wouldn’t it be nice if the Beach Boys were coming to Montana
Then Big Sky wouldn’t have to wait so long
The boys of summer are in fact booked to play the Big Sky Town Center this summer, in a July 3 fundraiser for Morningstar Learning Center.
“It’s going to be a great time,” said Morningstar board member Tracy Jacobson, adding she thinks the show will draw fans from around Southwest Montana.
With a beach theme, the concert will be oriented around families, she added, with free admission for children under 12.
The fundraiser is part of an effort by Morningstar to raise $100,000 to match a donation from the Rapier Family Foundation contingent on the learning center doing just that. The money would go toward paying off the rest of the principal balance on Morningstar’s mortgage.
The idea to bring the Beach Boys was Kym Rapier’s, who is a longtime Beach Boys fan.
There will be 3,000 tickets available – they go on sale May 1 on ticketriver.com.
Vootie Productions, which does all of the Yellowstone Club’s shows, plus the Red Ants Pants Festival and the Targhee Bluegrass Festival, is producing the concert.
