Michael G. Batdorf

Music with mountains in mind

Regular Gigs

Tuesday Nights at the Silver Dollar bar - 7:30-11:30 pm  Jackson, Wyoming in the historic Wort Hotel with One Ton PIg.  This is one of the longest musical traditions in Jackson Hole.  The Tuesday night experience with the One Ton Pig has been a popular attraction for 10 years.  This is just a straight up party in one of Jackson's oldest establishments.  Come early and leave late!

Pendls Cafe- Downtown Driggs, Idaho (9am-11ish)  Every Sunday through the summer.  Another one of Teton Valley's long standing traditions!  People have been enjoying this experience for about 7 years.  Michael often brings in guest songwriters and musicians from around the country.  This is a laid back courtyard setting and like no other musical experience that you have had!  Grab a coffee and some baked treats and listen to some acoustic music.
