Magic City Blues in downtown Billings turned 18 this year, and to celebrate, organizers dedicated a portion of proceeds to Kelker's Kids, named for Montana's first pediatric oncologist Dr. Paul Kelker,

A total of $25,000 was raised for the organization, which provides financial support for children and their families undergoing cancer treatment at Billings Clinic.

This year's festival took place Aug. 2 - 3 on Montana Avenue in downtown Billings featuring the return of George Thorogood and the Destroyers on Friday night and YouTube sensation Postmodern Jukebox headlining the festivities on Saturday. 

Attendance for both nights was estimated between 5,000 to 7,000 people, according to festival organizer Tim Goodridge.
