Recognized artists from a variety of genres have performed in Billings thanks to the work of Palmer and his crew. Also, Palmer was the co-founder of “Big Sky Ballin,” a premier sporting event company specializing in giving back to the youth through sports.
Palmer has made an impact in the Billings community in several different ways. Palmer is a recognized businessman and entrepreneur; however, his mission is to make a positive impact in the community of Billings, specifically in the youth. His company procured Zach LaVine, the current NBA Slam Dunk Champion, as a host for a camp that served 150 kids. LaVine also attended the kids’ annual three on three “Above The Rim Basketball Tournament.” Prior to that, his company also brought the future NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver, Terrell Owens, to Billings for an exclusive football camp at the Billings Sportsplex.
Thanks to Palmer’s dedication, his experience, and his education at RMC he was named the new general manager at the Island Nightclub on February 1, 2016. While balancing school, a business and now the Island Nightclub, he plans to offer a safe environment for people to enjoy themselves with music themed events and special appearances by major artists. He also offers job opportunities and internships for the local college students in Billings for each company. Palmer’s dedicated crew have a mission to make everyone feel good and enjoy life. He stated, “It’s deeper than a party, a concert, a charity event or a youth sporting event. The Billings community needs to grow on all aspects, and I chose the entertainment route to help the city grow.”
The efforts from Palmer and his crew have paid off. Currently, Palmer offers a weekly event called “Feel Good Fridays.” The up-beat environment, flashing lights, live DJ’s, and more have given the city an opportunity to enjoy themselves. “We provide an atmosphere for people to release stress, or as I would call it, ‘entertainment therapy.’” His hard work has raised the standards for the entertainment industry in Billings, and now the community demands top-notch entertainment.
“Being involved with a small college like RMC and being in close interaction with my professors provides me with motivation to continue to work at something I believe in. Seems like everyone wants you to succeed here, and that is major because everyone has their struggles, but the support system here is very welcoming,” Palmer stated. RMC has helped Palmer build skills and reinforce his talents. The mission of RMC is to educate future leaders. Palmer is the perfect definition of a leader in the community, and RMC has helped him expand his abilities.
