JACKSON, Wyo. — A week before the pandemic shut things down in mid-March 2020, Sneaky Pete and the Secret Weapons were looking forward to performing at the Center Theater for the first time. A leaky roof cancelled the much-anticipated set, and it’s been over a year since they’re last high altitude groove throw-down. A proper end-of-the-ski-season show has become one of their local traditions, and this Saturday at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar will be just that.
Saturday’s show will also be festive as the Weapons give a proper end-off to the band’s third drummer, Andrew Keehn, who was originally slated to play his last show a year ago, but circumstances with the pandemic kept him in town. He’ll be shoving off to Vermont for the summer with the off chance of still being involved with Weapons’ engagements moving forward.
When sitting down in Teton Village last March with keyboardist Galen Karnatz and bassist Sam Lowenthal, there was already an air of transitional times, but also exciting times. They had been rearranging songs to fit the context of an unplugged vibe for theater audience. Since they never got to perform that set, the sit-down nature of the Cowboy will offer a taste.
“We are planning on a few of the songs from the Center set. Stoked to play them for a crowd,” Karnatz said. “Also stoked to welcome Adam, Shane and Bri from Sghetti as guests for the show.”
Sneaky Pete & the Secret Weapons, 6-9:30 p.m. Saturday at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. Pre-sale table tickets are sold out, with door entry available for $20 on a first-come, first serve basis. This is a sit down, socially distanced show.
