Montana Courting Buffett for Next Year

A non-profit group in Montana is trying to bring Jimmy Buffett to Red Lodge near Yellowstone for a benefit concert next year:

A non-profit group for kid’s health is looking to bring Mr. Margaritaville himself to the Yellowstone Valley for a benefit concert.

Youth Dynamic has a major promoter that is working with Jimmy Buffett’s booking agent to secure a contract for a July 2010 concert in Red Lodge. They have raised $500,000 dollars for a down payment.

Organizers said they should know by the end of July if the concert will happen and tickets will go on sale shortly thereafter. Buffett has not performed in Montana since the ’70’s.


The concert would be held at a private ranch outside of Red Lodge. Youth Dynamics hopes to raise $1-million from the Buffett concert to support uninsured children with mental illness. Organizers say they do have a plan B in order should the Buffett contract not come through.

    As an advisor to the organizer I would like to welcome all parrotheads to Red Lodge Montana for this event. I own the Silver Strike Casino Sports Bar Casino and Bowling Alley. I will be converting my establishment into the finest beach bar will ever find so far from a high tide. If you have any questions on how to get to Red Lodge and where to stay please contact me via email or call the bar. we’ll try to get you set up. Ask for Kam. If the contract get signed you will need to make reservations for accomodations very very early because the town is small, otherwise you may need to find accomadations in Billings, Cody, or other outlying communities. Red Lodge is a great little town. Many fantastic bars and restaurants. Check out our Tavern Association website at or
