Grammy nominated Daniel Powter performs at Big Sky Resort3/12/07
BIG SKY, MT.- International recording star Daniel Powter, whose mega-hit "Bad Day" garnered him a Grammy nomination this year, will present a concert in Big Sky on Sunday, March 18th, at 6 p.m. in the Missouri Ballroom at Big Sky Resort. Tickets will be $40 ($45 at the door) and are currently on sale in Bozeman and Big Sky.
Powter is coming to Big Sky at the request of a local friend, who supports the area's four-year effort to get a high school for the isolated, but growing, resort town. All proceeds from the benefit concert go to the non-profit organization Friends of Big Sky Education, which is leading the high school effort.
Powter's signature hit Bad Day is an international sensation, played at sporting events and on American Idol, and on radio stations around the world. His current album features the songs, Love You Lately and Jimmy Gets High that have also been climbing the charts.
Thanks to the Club at Spanish Peaks, which is sponsoring him, Emmy-Award winning singer and songwriter Jim Salestrom will open for Powter. In his 35 year career, Salestrom has recorded with artists such as Kenny Rogers, John Denver and Dolly Parton, and has played for four presidents, at the Academy Awards and on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, as well as extensive international and national tours.
Big Sky Resort says they expect the Powter and Salestrom concert to be a highlight for their guests and the community.
"The snow has been great--we are above normal for February now--and we are looking forward to a powder--and a Powter-- day when Daniel arrives," said Resort Spokesperson Dax Schieffer. "We think our guests will be excited and surprised to see stars of such international caliber, and we are proud to support such an important community cause with this event, which will be family friendly and full of town spirit."
Schieffer said the resort is currently planning other events and promotions to occur along with Powter, which will be announced closer to the concert day. Some childcare may be available on site for young children (call Big Sky for reservations and information) though the concert is appropriate for older children and teens.
Tickets are available in Bozeman at the Fieldhouse Box Office, Borders Books and Music, Cactus Records, MSU Strand Union. In Big Sky, they will be available at the concierge desks at the Huntley and Summit Hotels as well as the concierge at the Moonlight Lodge and the Blue Moon Bakery. Tickets can also be charged by phone at 1-800-808-5940 or 1-800-325-SEAT and online at www.ticketswest.com.
In addition to Big Sky's sponsorship, the event is being sponsored by Vootie Productions, Martha and Scott Johnson, Ann and Michael Mendenhall, Loren and Jill Bough, the Montana Real Estate Company, The Club at Spanish Peaks, Radick Construction, and Bitteroot Builders. Additional sponsorship spots are still available.Back To Press Release Archive
