6 Spots For Live Music

As the hub of Montana’s Flathead Valley, it’s probably no surprise that Kalispell has a lively music and entertainment scene. A mountain town that combines western history with a vibrant downtown, musicians feel right at home and find inspiration from a variety of places, from wide-open spaces to snow-capped peaks and the area’s distinct four seasons. 

And in Montana, entertainment comes in many forms. Live music tends to take center stage, but is easily complemented by rodeo, festivals, storytelling and special events. Whether you’re planning a trip here or you live here, be sure to keep an eye out for Montana musicians like Halladay Quist, Mike Murray and the Kenny James Miller Band. 

Within Kalispell, there are a handful of places where local music makers regularly take to the stage to share their melodies and stories with locals and visitors alike. A few of note:

1. KM Bar

2. Sacred Waters Brewing Company

3. Depot Park

4. Sunrift Beer Company
