From the big sky of Montana comes a big sky sound, a mix of Americana, country, blues and honky-tonk, compliments of Little Jane and the Pistol Whips that will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5, at Cavalcade, 201 E. Aspen Ave., in Fruita.

Formed in 2008 by Ashley Jane Holland “Little Jane,” and Russ Smith, the band originally began as an acoustic ensemble, according to the “about us” link at Holland and Smith were playing solo gigs around the Bozeman, Mont. area when mutual friends introduced them.

“The sound and personnel of the original duo evolved as it took on drums, electric guitar and pedal steel in a slightly different musical iteration,” the website said, “which allowed the acoustic-based musicians room to explore a more diverse set of tones and tempos and was a catalyst for new, original material as well as revisiting selected country standards which added to their repertoire and musical depth.”

In 2010, the band released the album “This Town” with 14 original songs by Holland. “This Town” caught the ear of Erik Funk, the host/producer of Montana PBS television special “11th & Grant.” “Funk invited the band to appear on the Emmy award-winning show and, in November of last year, Little Jane and the Pistol Whips were chosen to host the season premier,” the website said.

Tickets are $10.

Go to or call 260-5413 for information about the band.
