Area residents who attend this year’s Ag Showcase can expect an evening of food, fun, dancing and live music by Kyle Shobe & the Walk ‘Em Boys Friday, Nov. 15, in the Heart Mountain Center at the Powell Fairgrounds.
Hosted by the Northwest College Foundation, the event, complete with a pitchfork steak dinner, gets underway at 5:30 p.m. The evening includes a wide variety of entertainment including contests, live music and beer tasting.
For the past decade, Kyle Shobe and the Walk ‘Em Boys have entertained crowds across the West with their unique brand of country music, born and bred in the middle of Montana.
As an auctioneer, rodeo announcer and country music artist, Shobe’s list of occupations circle back to a microphone and his ability to motivate, inspire or persuade an audience.
Shobe, the 2010 World Livestock Auctioneer Champion, focuses his time on purebred cattle sales in the spring and fall seasons and sells at several weekly livestock markets throughout the year.
From his office in Lewistown, he operates the family auction and real estate business with his father Jayson, specializing in farm and ranch equipment, western art and real estate.
In addition to announcing numerous PRCA rodeos in Montana and the Dakotas, Shobe has announced Cheyenne Frontier Days since 2007.
The music group travels the region playing concerts and dances at fairs, conventions, weddings and community events. Shobe released his second album “Long Overdue” this summer.
As a headline sponsor, Briess will have a beer tasting including the famous Spotted Cow beer from Wisconsin.
All proceeds from the evening will benefit the Northwest College Ag student travel fund.
The deadline to purchase tickets is Nov. 8. Cost per person is $35. To purchase tickets, visit https://www.nwcollegefoundation.org/ag.
