A summer music extravaganza starts tonight on Fanny Hill, and continues down the mountain to Base Camp Grill. The free tunes start around 6, with Papa Grows Funk. They're a staple on the New Orleans club scene and a surefire way to get the crowd moving on a hot Snowmass summer afternoon. Then, local rock and groovers Jes Grew will carry the torch down to Base Village, for music into the night. Join your fellow frolickers tonight on Fanny Hill, in Snowmass.
