September 18, 2018View for printing

A panel of entrepreneurs Monday embodied an advertisement for the business city officials hope fills in a swath of Bozeman fighting to catch some of the town's boom.

Nick Checota, owner of Logjam Presents, is the man leading the effort to build a music venue to fit 1,500 people on North Seventh Avenue. Checota's resume includes renovating Missoula's iconic Wilma Theatre and Top Hat Lounge.
