Chali and mates get their groove on at the Knotty before Halloween.
As referenced earlier, this is shaping up to be one outrageous Presidents’ Weekend. On top of all the events going on in Jackson, there has been an organic convergence of music over the hill.
Tonight the Knotty Pine kicks off a run of four nights of shows with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and Chali 2na and House of Vibe. The show is sold out, but Mike Dillon returns with Hairy Apes BMX on Friday and Saturday. Capping off the weekend is a truly outrageous ensemble unlike anything the Teton area has seen: MarchFourth Marching Band, a 24-piece troupe loaded with horns and percussion, mixing marching beats with performance art.
Also, at Grand Targhee’s Trap Bar, Leftover Salmon alumnus Vince Herman is back with Great American Taxi. Last we left off, Herman and friends were performing late night in the campground after Targhee Fest. The good-time bluegrass and Americana quintet is playing aprés-ski in the Trap as well as at night. Click here for details. And with Targhee hitting its quota of 10,000 Facebook friends, lift tickets will be just $25 on Friday.
Chali 2na and Karl D. are practically locals, having performed in Jackson Hole and at the Knotty often in recent years. This is the first time the two have toured together, and Chali is looking for both bands to mix it up.
“He loves to jam out,” Chali said of The Diesel. “I’m that kind of cat.”
