U.K. band The New Mastersounds plays Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Lake Tahoe

The New Mastersounds take the stage at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on Sunday, Nov. 5.

Just prior to the turn of the century, Eddie Roberts' United Kingdom night club The Cooker moved to a new venue, offering space for a live band to perform. Roberts and fellow musician Simon Allen played together a few years earlier as The Mastersounds, but added Pete Shand and Bob Birch on bass and piano, respectively, and thus The New Mastersounds was born.

"Though it was raw, and more of a boogaloo sound at first, it was powerful from the start," states The New Mastersounds biography.

In 2007, Birch left the group and Joe Tatton replaced him — the rest of the band's timeline is history.

"The New Mastersounds are at the very top of an elite selection of acts that bring the true soul out of funk," continues the bio.

The Leeds-based funk and groove quartet takes the stage at South Shore's Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on Sunday, Nov. 5, at 9 p.m. alongside special guest Kung Fu, a funk-rock blend that calls Connecticut home.

Tickets for the show are available for $18 in advance, and climb to $25 at the door.
