A world of influences will come to South Lake Tahoe’s Whiskey Dick’s Saloon next Thursday, Dec. 17.
San Diego’s B-Side Players plays a mix of global funk, rock, jazz and hip-hop.
“The B-Side Players are a 9-piece band part of a new movement in popular music,” according to the group’s online biography. “A band that honors the international cross-pollination that has always made music the universal language. They use any beat that catches their ear, regardless of geography or genre, to create a compelling, horn driven polyrhythmic groove.
“They continue exploring the multifaceted grooves of Latin America and the Caribbean, incorporating the sounds of Cuba, Jamaica, Mexico and Brazil with the funk, rock, jazz and hip-hop rhythms of their homeland, dropping bits of Cumbia, Salsa, gritty street Samba, Son Montuno, Jarocho and Boogaloo into the mix.”
The band has been together for more than 20 years, has gained a reputation for its live shows and has won 10 San Diego Music Awards.
“Meanwhile their albums showcase a band with restless musical intelligence, effortlessly blending genres to fashion their own forward looking, latin-flavored soul music,” according to the bio.
South Shore’s 4 Piece Puzzle opens Thursday’s show.
Whiskey Dick’s Saloon is located at 2660 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe.
