Sneaky Pete & The Secret Weapons

Saturday, 8 p.m. Sneaky Pete & the Secret Weapons is a collective of musicians channeling original music through a lens of hazy funk and unending groove, all witnessed and interpreted from the peaks and valleys of the Rocky Mountains.

Their genre-blending sound of funk, rock, jazz and hip-hop moves from the streets of New Orleans to smoky jazz dives, intergalactic spaceships, and late-night laser-filled clubs.
