Sneaky Pete and the Secret Weapons is a six-piece original music project from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, who have been spreading their seed of high-energy mountain funk and danceable grooves throughout the West Coast and Rocky Mountains since 2012. Pulling from a wide-ranging and eclectic pool of influences, their debut album Breakfast has been met with praise from critics, musicians, and anyone who likes to get up and move. After sharing stages with the likes of Trombone Shorty, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, the Pimps of Joytime, and other players, the Weapons live-shows have created a reputation of uncontrollable dance parties, unbridled enthusiasm, and full-devotion to the moment. If you like to have more fun than everyone else, you won’t want to miss Sneaky Pete and the Secret Weapons.
