The music scene in Bozeman is about to get a lot better. According to Nick Checota, owner of Logjam Presents, “Logjam is excited to partner with the Rialto to bring world-class artists to Bozeman. With the renovations made to the Rialto in 2018, the Rialto offers a best-in-class, 500 capacity venue to promote and produce live events for the Bozeman community. Having a venue of this quality will allow us to add many of the shows we currently bring into the Missoula market into Bozeman.”

Bozeman venue the Rialto and Montana-based promoter Logjam Presents have entered into an exclusive agreement under which Logjam will promote and produce live entertainment events at the Rialto. The two companies will work together to ensure that the theater continues to serve as a music and culture hub for the Bozeman community.
“We are very excited to partner with Logjam at the Rialto,” said Matthew Beehler, General Manager for the Rialto. “Our goal has always been to bring great acts to Bozeman, and we believe this new partnership will help us deliver on that. We're so proud of what we've built at the Rialto, and want to ensure the venue is a vibrant part of downtown Bozeman. We believe Logjam will help us build a pipeline of great live music, comedy and other live performances that will take advantage of all the venue has to offer. While we hope to increase the frequency of acts, the Rialto will continue to host private events and be managed and operated by Columbia Hospitality.”

As with its other venues, Logjam is committed to creating an exceptional concertgoer experience at the Rialto. The experienced team of Logjam will bring added expertise to venue booking, operations, production and promotions. According to Checota, “Logjam Presents promotes more live events than any company in the state of Montana. We bring the expertise of a large national promoter, but as a Montana-based and owned company, we also provide a commitment to our state and the Bozeman community.”The agreement will be effective starting September 1, 2019.
