Snowmass Drive-In Concerts: Trae Pierce and the T-Stones

Don’t miss the first drive-in concert at Snowmass Town Park tomorrow! Each month, Snowmass plans to host a live band people can “drive-in” to attend, listening in on their car radios to the FM broadcast.

This month’s concert is Trae Pierce and the T-Stones, defined as a “hard-edged funk and hip-hop mixed with rock and blues” band, according to its website. Pierce is a world-class bassist and four-time Grammy Award winner.
