Since 1977, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band has revolutionized the New Orleans brass band style by merging funk and bebop into traditional ‘Nawlins jazz, influencing most of the brass bands that followed. Trimmed to a seven-piece touring unit, Dirty Dozen has instigated a number of rowdy late nights in Jackson Hole. It’s a Southern-style dance party that will be perfect for an afternoon in Teton Village Commons. Groove/funk six-piece Sneaky Pete & the Secret Weapons will open with a set of original, high-energy party music. Concert on the Commons with The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Sneaky Pete & the Secret Weapons, 5 p.m. Sunday outside in Teton Village Commons. Free, all-ages. JacksonHole.com.
