We’re knee deep in March ya’ll and the events are aplenty. If you didn’t check out Music Under the Tram last weekend, head out to Teton Village this Saturday-the vibe is nice and the snow is soft. It’s time to drop into the weekend!

Gary Small and The Coyote Brothers
Location: The Silver Dollar Showroom at The Wort Hotel
Time: Friday and Saturday night at 7:30 pm
Information: If you love Blues, Rockabilly, Surf and plain ol’ good times music then you are in the right place. Our motto is “Purveyors of Good Boogie Music”. The Coyote’ Bros are a diverse band with three Native American Music Awards including: Songwriter of the Year, Best Male Artist and Best Rock Album.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: These guys have won awards and wear some of the best pearl snap button downs I’ve seen in a WHILE (see photo below). The Silver Dollar Showroom is a great place to start any Friday or Saturday night. Why? Because you’re already downtown, close to Pinky G’s Pizza, and close to all of the other downtown events. I always feel safer when there’s pizza available within a 100 yard radius.
