North Shore’s Crystal Bay Casino will kick off the weekend with Americana, folk and bluegrass.

The Brothers Comatose play the casino’s Crown Room Friday night.

“Ben and Alex Morrison, guitar and banjo, and lead vocalists, front this rocking string band that has become a West coast headliner and national touring act in a mere four years,” according to the band’s online biography. “With bass-master Gio Benedetti and stellar accompanists Phil Brezina on fiddle and Ryan Avellone on mandolin, their high energy, audience engaging shows have caught fire with fans from San Diego to Seattle to Salt Lake to Silk Hope, NC and beyond.”

The band lists the Kinks, the Rolling Stones, Hunter S. Thompson, Crosby Stills and Nash, Salvador Dali, Chunk circa 1985 in “The Goonies,” Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Earl Scruggs and the Violent Femmes among its influences. The band has toured with Devil Makes Three, Yonder Mountain String Band and Lake Street Dive and made appearances at festivals including High Sierra, Delfest, BottleRock and Summer Meltdown.

“At the heart of this remarkable ensemble are the songs,” according to the bio. “With two CDs released and the third on its way, the band draws from a deep knowledge of folk, rock, traditional and other genres.”
