Ownership of The Wilma and Top Hat Lounge establishes Logjam Presents

The ownership of The Wilma and Top Hat Lounge have established Logjam Presents, a new entertainment promotion and production company headquartered in Missoula, Montana. Logjam will primarily focus on promoting and producing live entertainment in the Northwest region of the United States.

Effective immediately, Logjam will assume exclusive entertainment buying and management for The Wilma and Top Hat Lounge. Current Owner and Entertainment Buyer for The Wilma and Top Hat Lounge, Nick Checota, will serve as the CEO and the principal Entertainment Buyer of Logjam. Additional key staff for Logjam will include Dan Torti as Vice President of Operations and Ryan Torres as Vice President of Marketing and Promotion.

According to Mr. Checota, “Logjam has been formed as regional entertainment company with a commitment to the artist and concertgoer experience.” Checota believes that Logjam will achieve this commitment through a dedication to superior artist hospitality, best-in-class sound and light production, and world class guest services. In the opinion of Checota, “The Wilma and Top Hat Lounge have created a unique artist and concertgoer experience through major investments in production and state-of-the-art facilities that are unmatched in the region.” In addition to making major capital investments in the venues, Checota attributes success of The Wilma and Top Hat Lounge to the fact that the principal officers work and live in the region in which they promote and operate.

According to Checota, Logjam will continue to aggressively grow its operations, but will do so in a manner that does not sacrifice its commitment to an exceptional artist and concertgoer environment.

About The Wilma. Located in downtown Missoula, Montana, The Wilma has anchored the city’s cultural and entertainment scene for more than 100 years. In March of 2015, the facility was acquired by new ownership and immediately commenced work on a major renovation and restoration project at the historic theater. The project included investment in an entirely new infrastructure, including a renovated stage, first-class entertainer accommodations and one of the best sound systems in the western United States. As a result, the 1,500 capacity theater has become a state-of-the-art modern events center within a spectacular historic building.


About Top Hat Lounge. The Top Hat Lounge has been a cornerstone of entertainment in the Missoula, Montana music scene since its establishment in 1952. Located downtown, the Top Hat is a recently renovated 600-capacity venue and full-service restaurant that hosts a variety of national touring musicians as well as regional and local artists.
