There are a lot of very talented musicians in Montana, but only a handful have made it to the big time. A band based out of Bozeman has been selling out venues across the country, and many consider it the best band to come out of Montana in a long time.

I'm talking about the Kitchen Dwellers. According to a bio on their website, the band

Twists bluegrass, folk, and rock through a kaleidoscope of homegrown stories, rich mythology, American west wanderlust, and psychedelic hues.

In early February, the Kitchen Dwellers played two sold-out shows at The ELM in Bozeman. Last August, the band joined bluegrass powerhouse Billy Strings on stage at the KettleHouse Amphitheater. If you're a fan of modern bluegrass, jam grass, or jam bands in general, chances are you've heard of the Kitchen Dwellers.

Who Are the Kitchen Dwellers?

The Kitchen Dwellers consist of Shawn Swain on mandolin, Torrin Daniels on banjo and vocals, Joe Funk on upright bass, and Max Davies on acoustic guitar and vocals. Whenever the band returns to Montana, tickets always sell out instantly. They're currently touring around the country but will return to Montana for the Under the Big Sky Festival in July.
