The Clintons Return To Music On Main

BOZEMAN -

Music on Main kicked off Thursday night in downtown Bozeman. And that usually means a local favorite takes the stage.

On the last week of June when Main Street closes and a flatbed truck parks in the crosswalk at Bozeman Avenue, it can only mean The Clintons are in town.

"They (The Downtown Bozeman Association) have that first one ready for us which is great," said Josh Keehr, The Clintons band member.  "We don't really ever expect it, but it sure is nice to be able to do that."

Keehr said it's great to play at Music on Main every year.

"We're proud to call Bozeman home and we're going to keep on going," said Keehr.

Levi Kujala, the band's drummer and manager, said the band grew its roots and Bozeman and has been around for awhile.

"We started in 1999 and our first show was at the top of the story mansion at a frat party," said Kujala.

Keehr said Chemistry is key to the longevity.

"I think that is one of our best assets and one of the things we're most lucky with is the fact this line has great chemistry and longevity," said Keehr.  "We haven't had any in fighting."

Kujala said early on, the band wanted to tour across the country, they changed their mind after touring the western half of the country.

"We figured out we actually, it's a lot more fun to stay in Montana," said Kujala.

The Clintons scaled down their schedule this summer, only playing at their favorite festivals and events. That's so they can focus on making new music.

"We're trying to 12 or 24 month break and get some perspective on our art and our music and come back and keep going with making records," said Kujala.

Music on Main continues next week with Andy Frasco.
