AT ALIVE AFTER FIVE: BIG MONTI AND LOCAL OPENER MARSHALL POOLE

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 3.07.13 PM

This week’s Alive After Five headliner: Big Monti Amundson 
Go Listen Boise local opener: Marshall Poole

Big Monti Amundson

 

His name is Monti Amundson but most people call him Big Monti. Not just because of the man’s physical appearance, but also because of his obvious talent and sheer presence. When Big Monti takes the stage, it’s clear that there’s more going on than the usual extended guitar solos – the man plays and sings larger than life.
