Montgomery County was formed in late 2009 and started performing around Victoria in early 2010. The band saw varying degrees of success playing local venues including the Saanich Fair but yet wouldn't see their greatest success until 2011.
It was in 2011 that the band was asked to open for George Canyon at Western Speedway in Langford. It was this performance that proved to be the turning point for the band.
2012 was the biggest year for the band and was highlighted by the bands performances at the Luxton Rodeo and Sunfest. The band's following increased throughout the year and the band found themselves booked solidly for the final 5 months of the year.
This success has continued into 2013 and 2014 with the band continuing to enjoy a large and ever increasing popularity throughout the island. The band has played sold out show at the Queen's Hotel in Nanaimo as well as Sugar Nightclub in Victoria where they jammed the venue for their 1st country nights. Success led to a series of bookings at the Queen's backing up George Canyon & Aaron Pritchett.
Montgomery County continues to entertain with their high energy show that includes many great new country hits from artists such as Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, Dwight Yoakam, Brooks & Dunn and Luke Bryan. Montgomery County is a unique experience that is more than just a band on a stage playing music, it is about the show and audience interaction that goes with it. Come watch a show. You will be glad you did.
