“It was a surreal experience that I haven’t really appreciated until now,” Rogers said in a recent interview.
At the time Rogers was performing with the Tyler Burnett Band, and he’ll take the stage once again with some of the same musicians. Currently Rogers is playing with drummer Pat Epley and bassist Steve Brown in a group they’ve dubbed the S.O.B.s, short for Sons of Billings.
The festival, which features two stages of blues and rock acts sprawling down Montana Avenue in downtown Billings, takes place on Aug. 13 and 14.
This year’s lineup also includes local bands on both stages. The Stillwater Stage will feature rock act the Sons of Billings on both Friday and Saturday evenings, and Billings funk band Funk in the Trunk will appear on the Main Stage on Friday evening.
