Get your Celtic on with Jack!

We don’t need much of an excuse to take the beautiful summertime drive down the Bitterroot.

But for those of you looking for a good reason, may we suggest the upcoming Bitterroot Celtic Games & Gathering in Hamilton?

Whether as a participant or just an onlooker, a fun experience is pretty much all but guaranteed at this 9th annual event. The list of activities is long, but here are some highlights:

• Highland Athletic Competitions: If super strong men in kilts hurling logs sounds like fun, then you don’t want to miss the Highland games. There’s lots of events for women and children in here too, and all participants receive a weekend pass plus a T-shirt. CLICK HERE for a schedule of events or to register.

• Dancing, drumming and piping competitions: Nothing brings us back to the old country like traditional Celtic song and dance, and the weekend is packed with competitions and showcases by all ages and abilities.

• Food: Nothing completes a festival like delicious food and drink, and at the Bitterroot Celtic Games & Gathering you’re going to be delighted by all the traditional fare options, including Scottish smoked salmon cheese pate, whiskey and scotch tastings and more!

Also, be sure to catch the Beards & Braids contest, the Tug-o-War and free piping and language classes throughout the weekend.

This year’s Bitterroot Celtic Games & Gathering kicks off at 9 am Saturday, August 18 and runs through the end of day Sunday. A full schedule of events is available HERE – or be sure to stay on top of the latest news and happenings on the group’s Facebook event page.

This year, 105.9 Jack FM is excited to be giving away TWO free weekend passes to the event. Just comment on the post over at Jack’s Facebook page and we’ll pick our winners at the end of the day Wednesday! Slainte!

When it comes to holidays, none is perhaps more relaxing than Father’s Day.

What do we mean? We mean Dads are, typically, extremely easy to honor. Get him a necktie, tell him he’s the man, and then get on with your day. Men don’t like all that gushy stuff anyways, right?

But believe it or not, there’s an even easier way to make Dad happy on his special day. Just plan something fun for the family, throw in some free food, and he’ll probably be so excited he’ll still do all the prep work, from packing the lawn chairs and snacks to chauffeuring the crew there and back!

This Father’s Day, Jack FM Missoula is giving away the ultimate Dad’s Day package: A free four-pack of tickets to Friday’s “Symphony Under the Big Sky” PLUS a $50 gift card to the Montana Club. Seriously – kick back under the stars to great music from the Missoula Symphony and guest performer Chris Botti, and then pig out on cheese curds, burgers and other forms of deliciousness at Montana Club after the show!

All you have to do is FOLLOW THIS LINK to enter your name and phone number, and Jack will pick a winner on Thursday.

In the meantime, here’s some more details about the show:

Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Chris Botti will join the Missoula Symphony Orchestra for a special performance Friday, June 15th, at Big Sky Brewing Company in Missoula.

Botti, an Oregon native, began honing his craft as a studio musician in 1985 and has performed around the world with both jazz masters and pop stars ranging from Frank Sinatra and Buddy Rich to Roger Daltry and Paul Simon. Four of his albums were ranked No. 1 slot on Billboard jazz album charts, his latest – 2013’s Impressions – winning a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Album.

“Symphony Under the Big Sky” marks the first of what is expected to be a series of outdoor summer performances co-hosted by Missoula Symphony Association and Knitting Factory Presents.

See Aussie Floyd for free, matey!

All in all you’re just another brick in the … wallaby?

Jack FM Missoula is excited to send a few lucky listeners to see the Australian Pink Floyd Show LIVE at Northern Quest Resort & Casino on Thursday, Sept. 13!

Formed in 1988 and having sold over 4 million tickets in 35 countries, Australian Pink Floyd is hailed as one of the leading concert performances currently operating.

The band began its adventure as part of a wave of Australian tribute bands and broke into the international scene with their performance at the Pink Floyd fan convention in 1993. Since then, they’ve been playing bigger and more prestigious venues across the world – as well as having released several live concert DVDs and CDs.

Like the best tribute shows, Australian Pink Floyd isn’t just about “covering” your favorite Floyd tunes; they put all their energy into recreating the look, feel and sound of the classic rock band’s world tours – including familiar visual aids! Inflatable kangaroo, anyone?

Jack FM has scored three pairs of tickets and we’ll be giving them away for FREE every Friday through June 22!
