Western Skies has been described by some as a country rock band, a wild country band, and a band that plays everything. Western Skies is no doubt a party band. With more years combined experience than its oldest listener. Band leader Mark Longie put his years of experience to work, putting together one of Montana’s elite groups of musicians, to please all walks of life. Don’t be surprised if you hear everything, from Hank Williams classics, new country from The Zac Brown Band, Old Crow Medicine Show, Toby Keith, Brooks and Dunn, and Big and Rich, to ripping’ rock and roll like Poison, Aerosmith, ZZ Top, and Green Day. We play it all!!! Brides and grooms have said “We have never seen a band, like Western Skies, that pleased them, their parents, and grand-parents, to their uncles, cousins, and CRAZY college buddies, and kept the dance floor hopping all night long!!!” Western Skies consists of 4 very talented musicians. Mark Longie, Lead vocals, guitars, mandolin, and yes, he manages the band too! Jeff Lilly vocals and bass guitar, Jim Swenson vocals and lead guitar. Clayton Damjanovich Drums and Percussion. When asked if playing music is all that they do, they quickly say no! “WE all live and work full-time, in and around the Bozeman area.” How do they do it? “With HUGE support from our families, we love to entertain, have fun, and get the crowd involved in our shows!” Western Skies has been a previous main stage performer five times at Headwaters Country Jam and have shared the stage with Lonestar, Colin Raye, Tracy Lawrence, Little Texas, Deanna Carter, and the Eli Young Band, Diamond Rio, Confederate Railroad. We’ve played from the smallest bars, to large concert venues. The members of the band have opened for major artists, such as REO Speedwagon, Neal McCoy, Tracy Byrd, Hal Ketchum, Sawyer Brown and Western Underground! For your event, Western Skies will keep your wedding reception, festival, and fundraisers hopping, sell your bar out of beer, and keep the crowd dancing all night long!!!! .. ..
