95-1 The Moose is proud to have Michael Franti & Spearhead in Big Sky this Labor Day weekend as our 2012 Spruce Moose headliners. In honor of that, here's 5 things you may not know about Mr. Franti:

  1. Michael took his last name from his late adopted father, Charles Franti (who past away in 2003).
  2. The 6'6" Michael Franti went to college at the University of San Francisco on a full basketball scholarship.
  3. Franti began his music career as part of an industrial punk band (The Beatnigs).
  4. Not only does Michael Franti prefer to go barefoot, he rarely ever wears footwear (usually just flip-flops as required to board a plane or to be served in a restaurant).
  5. Michael Franti  wrote the song "Say Hey (I Love You)" in Woody Harrelson's bathroom.

Don't forget Moose VIPs, tomorrow is the day you'll have access to discounted Spruce Moose tickets before they go on sale to the general public.  September 1st is gonna be a blast on the mountain at Big Sky Resort with The Whigs and Michael Franti & Spearhead!
