Boy, it has been pretty nice out there! February was uncharacteristically on the warm side and March is looking like it will follow suit.

If you are a hockey fan, then an Idaho Steelheads game is right for you. Their season ends in the middle of April, so be sure to stop by one of their home games during the month of March. The Steelheads have had a great season and are at the top of their game. They have a lineup of fantastic players that bring their A-game every night.

Treefort Music Festival, http://treefortmusicfest.com/

The Treefort Music Festival is probably one of the largest events Boise hosts in the month of March. It is a massive multiday festival where musicians of all kinds gather to perform their music for the people of the Treasure Valley. The festival brings in big names as well as local artists of all genres to promote a love and appreciation of music.
During the festival there is even a film festival portion where independent film makers can display their work, take classes, and even join Q&As.
The Treefort Music Festival does not have a central location, but rather it is spread through the valley at different locations. So, be sure to find the location of the event you want to visit on their website before heading out.
The Midtown Men, http://themidtownmen.com/concerts/
If you are a fan of musicals, show tunes, or just music in general, then you will love the Midtown Men show at the Morrison Center this month. The Morrison Center has hosted many amazing acts, plays, and performances in its time, and the Midtown Men will surely not diminish that reputation.
The Midtown Men, 4 of the original cast members from Broadway’s Jersey Boys accompanied by a seven person band, offer a performance to be reckoned with. Their amazing renditions of 60’s music will have you on singing along thanks to their abundant talent and amazing harmonization.
Well, that’s a good way to start of the month of March. Stay tune to see what else there is in store for the Treasure Valley!
