Well, it matters to the folks who joined us at Saturday night’s benefit concert in Napa. Montana Matters kingpin daddy-o Ron Clausen hosted another killer event this year. The focus was to raise funds and awareness for the Bison Relocation Project, with the goal of reestablishing wild bison herds in their native habitat in Montana.
Shane Clouse, the pride of Missoula’s country music community, headlined a great evening that featured the fastest and most dangerous live auction this side of Gunsmoke, a few tunes from Napa’s own Salty Dawgs, and a set of songs from yours truly, including our new classic, “The Ballad of Rock Creek Ron,” which featured the entire NapaTana
kazoo horn section.
Shane also joined me for a tender duet on one of the songs from Off White Christmas. “I Can’t Believe It’s Christmastime Again” had the audience in tears, and maybe for all the wrong reasons. I don’t know. I just work here.
Next year’s Napa Extravaganza is already scheduled for Nov. 1, 2012. Keep an eye on montanamatters.com to learn more about what they do, and what’s coming up next with this dynamic organization. Now git!
