The Roundup -

8th Annual Oktoberfest October 7


Tickets are still available for the Eighth Annual Oktoberfest at the MonDak Heritage Center in Sidney, Montana. Presented by The MonDak Heritage Center and Northeastern Arts Network, this year’s event is Friday, October 7, 7:00 pm. Proceeds will provide funding for the continuing presentation of Live Music at the MonDak Heritage Center and area schools by MDHC and NAN.

This year’s celebration features music from John Roberts Y Pan Blanco. John began playing the piano at the age of 5 while living on an isolated ranch in Southeastern Montana. There was no TV, but there was a piano. At age 11, he picked up trombone to play in the grade school band. After graduating in 1996 from Montana State University-Billings with a BA in Music Performance, John moved to Los Angeles to earn his Master of Fine Arts in Western Orchestral Trombone Performance from California Institute of the Arts. John is currently on staff at MSU Billings as a Jazz, music theory, low brass and World Music instructor. With an incredibly energetic band of high level musicians, John Roberts Y Pan Blanco is an original sound ensemble that is designed to make the audience move. Many years of national and international touring, recording and performing experiences with West African, Funk, Soul, Salsa, Jazz and R&B ensembles have led to this project. John Roberts Y Pan Blanco are melding high energy, danceable Funk, African and Salsa grooves with blistering instrumental solos, all aimed at sharing musical diversity with the audience.

Ticket price covers admission, souvenir glass, delicious food including sausage and bratwurst donated by Redneck Meats and an unmatched selection of beverages from The Front Brewing Company of Great Falls, MT, Deschutes Brewery of Bend, OR and Ballast Point Brewing Company of San Diego, CA.

Our Oktoberfest sponsors this year include Stockman Bank, Blue Rock Distributing, and Redneck Meats.

Join the MDHC, NAN and live music lovers at the MonDak’s premiere Oktoberfest celebration. This event historically sells out so don’t hesitate.
