KNMC seeks musicians for annual Rock Lotto event


July 20, 2022

KNMC is seeking musicians of all skill levels to participate in our annual rock lotto.

Rock Lotto is an event in which musicians put their name in a drawing to be randomly placed into bands for a one-time only performance on Saturday, September 17th as part of the Havre Festival Days celebration. Musicians sign up to play an instrument (guitar, bass, drums, keys, horns) or as a lead/backup vocalist. If a participant can play more than one instrument, they are encouraged to list their backup instrument in case too many are signed up to play a particular instrument.

Rock lotto serves as a vehicle for musicians to meet other musicians and foster a sense of camaraderie and community amongst the musicians in our area.

For Musicians who have never played in a band or performed live, Rock Lotto is the perfect opportunity to test the waters because it is a short-term commitment, around six weeks for bands to assemble, practice, and perform live.

Prior to Havre’s annual Festival Days celebration, a music festival was held every May from the 1930s through the 1960s which brought regional bands to Havre to perform. KNMC seeks to honor that tradition by inviting musicians around the hi-line to join the fun by creating bands to perform at the Rock Lotto.

Deadline to sign up is noon on Friday, August 5th, with the band drawing, and song draft on Saturday, August 6th at 6pm at the Tip-It Bar.

For more information or to get involved, contact Dave Martens at 406-390-1238.
