Jackson Hole, WY’s Sneaky Pete and the Secret Weapons have been described as “genre-blending sound of funk, rock, jazz, and hip-hop moves from the streets of New Orleans to smoky jazz dives, exotic Latin ballrooms, intergalactic spaceships, and late-night laser-filled clubs”. To fully appreciate the breadth of stylistic influence that is the SPSW sound, you gotta catch them on tour.  Lucky for you, today marks the start of a West Coast run of dates with a show at The Green Frog in Bellingham, WA.

I got to catch up with their wildly-talented drummer Phil Walker, who is clearly looking forward to the trip out West, “We love spending time in this part of the country. Last fall we had a great time camping in Redwood State Park… except for a little bout with poison oak. Everyone but myself got it pretty bad. Not sure how I avoided it, but I hope my good karma remains this go-round.”

The band also plans to head into the studio in May to record a follow up to the 2016 EP, Dojo: “These next two weeks will also serve as a good final prep of some new tunes we’ve been working on before we head into the studio to record a new album. We’ll be working with our good friend and producer “Goldcone” a.k.a. Joe Rudd. We’ll be recording in May before we head to Ski Apache, New Mexico to take part in the Wind Rider Mountain Festival which includes Spafford, Fruition, our buddies Brothers Gow and Cycles, and a bunch of other cool bands.”

Get out there and catch SPSW on tour and be on the lookout for more news on the album: http://www.secretweaponsmusic.com/
