Montana’s own modern rock orchestra returns to Billings, Bozeman, adds Missoula

Guitar One Records recording and touring artist Grant Ferguson returns with the Modern Rock Orchestra (MRO) which premiered to sold-out venues across Montana in 2021. This year’s MRO Fall Tour includes a performance at 7:00 p.m., Saturday, October 29, 2022 at the Ellen Theater in Bozeman.

Red Lodge-based Ferguson has built a loyal following with his original instrumental rock music and has been compared to guitarists Jeff Beck and Joe Satriani, who pioneered the instrumental rock genre. His recently released 6th studio album – “Windswept Isle” – is currently #1 on the Roots Music Report Progressive Rock Chart.

The addition of orchestral arrangements and a full string section from prominent local symphony musicians to a live rock band has created a moving sound that is both modern and deeply traditional that appeals to a wider audience of all ages.

“The idea of ​​playing rock music with an orchestra isn’t new, but our music certainly is,” Ferguson says. “So much orchestral rock includes classic rock music that, while amazing, is essentially 40 or 50 year old music! be his musical tastes.”
