North Shore’s Crystal Bay Club Casino features a weekend of bluegrass and swamp funk with performances from Greensky Bluegrass and Hibbity Dibbity.
Greensky Bluegrass gets things started on Friday, Nov. 4, with a concert at 9 p.m.
“For more than a decade and a half, the members of Greensky Bluegrass have created their own version of bluegrass music, mixing the acoustic stomp of a stringband with the rule-breaking spirit of rock ‘n’ roll,” states the band’s online biography.
The group’s latest album, “Shouted, Written Down & Quoted,” released at the end of September.
“Like the band’s own name, ‘Shouted, Written Down & Quoted’ is a collection of opposites, full of dark psychedelic swirls, bright bursts of acoustic guitar, soundscapes, solos, freethinking improvisation, and plenty of sharp, focused songwriting. It’s wild and wide-ranging, showing off the diversity Greensky Bluegrass brings to every live show,” according to the bio.
Tickets are available for $25 at http://www.crystalbaycasino.com.
Hibbity Dibbity takes the stage Saturday evening. The Bay Area-based swamp funk group identifies as “San Francisco’s premier vibrational connectors,” according to their Facebook page.
The group is influenced by artists such as Grateful Dead, Chuck Berry and Allman Brothers Band.
Their free show begins at 10 p.m.
Crystal Bay Club Casino is located at 14 NV 28 in Crystal Bay.
