The Montana band "The Ringling 5" will return to Hamilton for a benefit concert of the Montana Narcotics Officers Association (MNOA) Thursday, May 19.

The troupe entertains with country music, humor and down home insights. They took their name from the small town of Ringling. In fact, many of their original songs celebrate Montana's small towns and rural lifestyle. They also poke fun at "city folk," who move here without realizing what they've gotten into.

The Ringling 5 were last in Hamilton during a recent Ravalli County Fair in the Saturday night show.

The Thursday concert will be at Hamilton's City Hall, the Bedford Building, at the corner of South 2nd Street and Bedford. The fun starts at 7 p.m. May 19 and adult admission is $27. Children under age 14 can get in free if they're accompanied by an adult.

The Montana Narcotics Officers Association puts on an annual entertainment tour to raise money for officer education and training, student scholarships and Montana workshops and youth activities. This year, the Ringling 5 will travel to eight towns including Hamilton.
