The Festival begins on June 24th with Helena’s Queen City Band, formerly known as the Speakeasy Dance Band, a ten-piece band that has been performing across Montana for 25 years.  Beginning with the “Big Band” sound of Stan Kenton, Benny Goodman, Woody Herman, the Dorsey Brothers, and Duke Ellington the Queen City Band has expanded selections to include music up to present day.  As the piano, percussion, saxophones, trumpets, bass and trombone play melody, harmony and rhythm you will want to tap your toes, nod your head, wish for a dance floor and hum the tunes on the way home.
