The Hellroaring is an alt/outlaw country band based out of Billings. Comprised of some of the region's best musicians, the band brings an edge to whatever they're playing, whether that be a Haggard standard or a Zac Brown tune or a fresh original.
Though much of the band specializes in anything but country, all the members come from Montana or Wyoming and have harbored a liking of the genre. Finding a lead singer in workin’ man/country music connoisseur Nick Kozub, the group decided to do what any self-respecting group of country men would do — rig up a band. Personnel in the band includes Erik Olson (keys), Parker Brown (auxiliary/lead guitar), Keller Paulson (drums), Ryan Riley (rhythm guitar), and Phillip Griffin (bass).
The Hellroaring have already packed out YVBC, landed a gig at the area’s truest-bluest country party, Homesteader Days, and held a spot at Billings’ favorite after-work shindig, Alive After 5.
