I can remember the days when Monte Neumeyer was winning every karaoke contest in the Yakima Valley. One of my favorite memories was when Monte and the boys dressed up like George Clooney from O Brother, Where Art Thou and sang a man of constant sorrow to win the grand prize in our Hill's Cafe singing contest.

Monte has come a long way from those days of singing in local bars to actually moving to Nashville in 2010. “With­out risk there’s no reward,” says Monte James. “It’s impor­tant to be fearless…to be per­sis­tent. You can’t give up.” That’s one thing the Yakima, WA singer/songwriter has proven.

Monte will come full circle on March 1st when he plays his first ever Yakima show at the Seasons. Here is the link to get your tickets.
