VICTOR, Idaho. — If it sticks to the wall, it’s gotta be funky. Sghetti, that is. Born from the rhythm section of Sneaky Pete & the Secret Weapons, underground soul-funk-jam purveyors Sghetti will ease Teton Valley revelers into 2022 with a New Year’s Eve throw-down at the Knotty Pine this Friday.

The Teton County project started out as an instrumental quartet with drummer Andrew Keehn, bassist Sam Lowenthal, and keyboardist Galen Karnatz of The Weapons joined by Adam Smith on guitar. In 2020, they expanded to a sextet by teaming up with vocalist Brianna Moore and Shane Wolf on percussion.

You won’t find Sghetti on Spotify or Apple Music just yet, though you can peruse plenty of lengthy “improv jams” via the band’s Soundcloud. You’ll also find a May 23, 2020 studio cut of “Keep You,” a funky reggae cover written by Chicago sibling band, Wild Belle, which was the first release featuring Moore on vocals. Other “Quarantunes” posted during pandemic sessions include a Tom Misch cover and two originals—“Butter” and “Spank.”

If you’re wondering what flavors of Sghetti sauce are simmering for the New Year’s Eve dance party, just grab a ticket to find out.

Sghetti, 10 p.m. Friday at the Knotty Pine Supper Club in Victor. $20/advance, $25 day-of-show.
