Polyrhythmics’ story began a mere five years ago, but that has not prevented the Seattle natives from quickly rising to prominence in the funk scene.

“On the heels of an 18-month touring cycle behind Libra Stripes, the collective continues to evolve and mature into muscular live unit apt to painting vivid instrumental imagery using complex rhythms and a unique precision that is redefining the term ‘funk’ for 21st century audiences,” states the band’s online biography.

The eight-member band travels to Tahoe’s North Shore for a headlining gig on Friday, Dec. 2, at Crystal Bay Club Casino. Influenced by artists like James Brown, Miles Davis and Michael Jackson, Polyrhythmics’ debut album, “Labrador,” released in 2011. The band’s latest work, “Octagon,” premiered just over one year ago.

“The palette for the hard-driving modern afro-psycho-beat sound is built around the relentless rhythm of Grant Schroff and Lalo Bello, the heart-thumping bass lines of Jason Grey, the intricate phrasings of Ben Bloom’s guitar, the searing avalanche of keyboard colors from Nathan Spicer and the melodic hooks and soaring solos from the horn section comprised of Scott Morning, Art Brown and Elijah Clark,” according to the bio.

Polyrhythmics’ North Shore concert is free to attend for audiences over the age of 21.

Crystal Bay Club Casino is located at 14 NV 28 in Crystal Bay, Nevada. Additional information is available at http://www.crystalbaycasino.com.
