11th and Grant

The Josh Farmer Band features original songwriting and dynamic instrumental performances on 11th & Grant. Josh Farmer’s earthy, spiritual semblance paired with the powerhouse trio of guitarist Tommy Pertis, drummer Caleb Van Gelder, and bassist Jesse Christian, create a one-of-a-kind sound that blends jazz, funk, rock and soul.

Strumming and composing on his guitar is how Montana native Josh Farmer composes most of his music, eventually tailoring it to the piano and his Nord organ to seamlessly blend with his ensemble. “Writing on a guitar is more natural, you can feel vibrations coming out. Composing music is different every time and it is still very elusive to me…sometimes it flows right out and sometimes a song will take months” says Farmer.

With themes of unity, equality and love for a creative community, the Josh Farmer band regularly headlines Missoula’s most acclaimed venues, including the Top Hat, The Union Club, The Badlander, Sean Kelly’s, and Monk’s.
