The Sidney Area Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture is excited to announce that Mighty Big Jim and the Tall Boys will entertain at the eighth annual Bakken Brew Fest on Saturday, April 20, at the Richland County Event Center.

The celebration begins at 7 p.m. VIP ticket holders enjoy early entry at 5:30 p.m.

Mighty Big Jim and the Tall Boys features veteran singer/songwriter Jim Devine, Casey Malkuch on lead guitar and vocals, Jon Redlin on bass and vocals, Jayson Eslick on drums and vocals and Katelynne Eslick providing lead and harmony vocals.

The band first took to the stage together in 2013, and released its first full-length album in February 2017. According to the group's website, band members were heavily influenced by Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, The Allman Brothers and The Band.

Mighty Big Jim and the Tall Boys released "Diamonds and Tears" earlier this year.

According to the band's website, "MBJ and the Tall Boys excel on the stage, bringing exciting energy and a set of songs, any crowd can connect with. The band's musical ability shines on original takes of popular rock n' roll songs. MBJ will captivate the audience with a new classic sound. This is a show you don't want to miss."
