Crystal Bay Casino is known as THE music venue that nabs great acts that fly under the radar.

Brothers Gow is one of those acts.

The quartet performs Saturday at the North Shore venue.

They describe their sound as an “imaginative style of modern rock, progressive funk and unpredictable retro-electronic jams,” a fairly spot on description.

Songs such as “Shadow” build under the musicianship of each band member from a melodic swaying pace to a prolonged jam, taking listeners on a musical journey that is as enjoyable as impressive.

“Reflections,” another song, starts strong out of the gate before transitioning seamlessly into a danceable sound that could get a club — a fun club, not a pretentious club filled with something-bags — going, before ultimately bringing the song back home for its end. This is the “retro-electronic” sound in the band’s description.

Brothers Gow — they’re not actual blood brothers — has faced its share of growing pains.

As the band’s bio explains, life was put on hold at the end of 2017 due to member departures and a back injury suffered by drummer Nathan Walsh-Haines.

However, the band persevered and is currently touring a slew of western states.

The current lineup consists of front men Kyle Merrill (guitar/vocals) and Ethan Wade (bass/vocals). Keyboardist Alex Mello joined the group in early 2018.

This is a show you won’t want to miss, and since it’s free you really have no excuse.

Brothers Gow take the stage at 10 p.m.
