I remember seeing Big & Rich in concert in 2005, just as they broke big with “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)," and it was a fun, wild, not-your-average-country-music show.

I’m betting that seeing them perform in as intimate a space as the Mohegan Sun Wolf Den on Saturday will be plenty memorable. They do tend to cultivate a party vibe, after all — heck, their most recent album, released this past September, is titled “Did It for the Party.”

And maybe the duo of John Rich and Big Kenny Alphin will say more about their own reality TV show that they are apparently working on. In a June interview with Taste of Country, Rich said, “We became friends with this actor named Mark Wahlberg. He’s like, ‘Man, you guys are crazy. I love Cowboy Troy,’ and he liked our whole thing. We’re actually working on a TV series right now and Mark Wahlberg is our executive director so it's pretty cool.”

You know what would be even more cool? If the show were filming the duo’s performance at Mohegan Sun.

Big & Rich, 8 p.m. Saturday, Mohegan Sun Wolf Den; free; mohegasun.com.
