JACKSON HOLE, WYO \u2013 The 77th Annual Fireman\u2019s Ball is tonight at the Heritage Arena. It will be a different fundraiser in many ways. Sadly, tonight will be the first ball in quite a while to take place without Cpt. Mike Tepe who was honored with a department parade and laid to rest last month. Tonight\u2019s event also falls on Veterans Day\u2014and that fits perfectly with the men and women who also serve our community in frontline, first-responder roles at Jackson Hole Fire\/EMS. And tonight, for the first time ever at a fireman\u2019s ball and the first time back in the Jackson Hole area for about three years, Big Head Todd and the Monsters headlines the evening. Chancey Williams and The Younger Brothers Band, along with locals Lazy Eyes, open the show. Todd Mohr (singer, songwriter, founder of the band) chatted with Buckrail while on the road supporting the band\u2019s new studio album New World Arisin\u2019. The new release features 10 cuts including a Jimi Hendrix cover (\u201cRoom Full of Mirrors\u201d), a Clash-esque number (\u201cDetonator\u201d), and a song that could fit perfectly tonight: \u201cWipeout Turn.\u201d \u201c is one of our favorites,\u201d Mohr said. Lyrics include, I was your lost child found\/You were my wipeout turn. \u201cThe idea is: I\u2019m your hero and your rescuer, but you\u2019re a disaster for me!\u201d Buckrail made Mohr aware of the event and it\u2019s fundraising for firemen\/women angle and he promised something tailor-made for tonight\u2019s show. \u201cIt will be a great evening of music,\u201d Mohr said. \u201cAll our sets are different, and we are happy to take requests for favorite songs or ones we know. We are thrilled to be a part of playing for the fire department and helping them raise money.\u201d After forming in Columbine, Colorado in 1984, Big Head Todd made the leap from mountain states legend through the late 80s and early 90s, to nationally-renowned headliner attraction with the release of Sister Sweetly, which went platinum on the strength of singles like \u201cBittersweet\u201d and \u201cBroken Hearted Savior.\u201d Doors open at 6pm, party \u2018til 1am. Live and silent auctions. Gun raffle. Dinner available from local vendors.\u00a0 Ice-cold beer and cocktails served by Jackson\u2019s bravest. Must be 21 to attend.
