Alt-blues, hip hop-infused band G. Love & The Juice will return to Bozeman for a concert at The ELM on Mar. 9, 2022.
Garrett Dutton aka G. Love broke out in 1994 with his Gold-selling self-titled debut, which earned widespread critical acclaim for its bold vision and adventurous production. Over the past twenty-five years, G. Love has released 10+ albums as a solo artist, with his previous band Special Sauce and most recently with his new band The Juice.
G. Love & The Juice is a collective of all-star musicians currently featuring G. Love on harmonica, guitar and vocals, Jimi Jazz Prescott on upright bass, Chuck Treece on vocals and drums, and Van Gordon Martin on Lead Guitar. G. Love’s 2020 album, The Juice, was co-produced and co-written with GRAMMY-winning icon Keb Mo’ and features special guests like Robert Randolph, Marcus King, and Roosevelt Collier.
G. Love has solidified his place in music history as a genre-bending pioneer with a sound The New York Times described as “a new and urgent hybrid” and NPR called a “musical melting pot.”
With high ceilings, ample space, and some of the best ventilation systems in the state, the Wilma in Missoula, MT as well as The ELM in Bozeman, MT provide unique opportunities for the Montana community to support the arts in a spacious and more comfortable environment as we move into the colder months.
About G. Love & The Juice

G. Love & The Juice is that new mosaic, drawing from his signature hip hop blues he invited seasoned touring musicians who shared in this vision to deliver a musical experience which includes classic G. Love songs, improvisation jams and the low-down dirty blues which has been a hallmark of Garrett Dutton shows since the 1990’s.
