4 Piece Puzzle
This South Lake Tahoe quartet knows how to throw a righteous dance party! Blending funk, jazz and soul on originals and outrageous covers, they’ll have your head spinning and limbs swinging before you know what hit ya.
Tony Glaser Band
Dripping with originality, this is an irresistible force of renegade funk and indie rock that takes control of your body and unchains your spirit. Led by groove-master bassist/vocalist Tony Glaser (formerly of Scott Pemberton Band), this San Francisco/LA band roars out of the gates and keeps the pedal to the metal. Guitarist Ben Misterka is one of the best you’ll ever see here at the Crazy Horse.

This early bird concert and community pow wow is perfect for anyone wanting to dance to their heart’s content and still hit the pillow by 10. Grease, Grit & Grime has long established itself as a local institution for anyone who loves the blues. They like to call it “Dirty Blues” but it goes down smooth like a mint julep on a sunny afternoon. When it comes to the sultry, dance-inducing side of the blues equation, you can be sure they have that covered. Harp maestro Scott Hickman leads the charge.
In a world where big funk bands are a dime a dozen, this one stands out from the pack. This Sacramento-based ensemble kicks down the doors with richly layered percussion, blaring brass, wailing guitar and a seductive vocal presence. The group explores a corridor of funky grooves and afro-beats while tapping into a heavier sound than one might expect. They’ve whipped our dance floor into a frenzy on multiple occasions.

With no Phish shows until late December, we are itching to fire up the projector for another live webcast. Joe Russo’s Almost Dead has been steadily gaining momentum and recent shows have garnered rave reviews. This band reinvents Grateful Dead material in a way unlike any other. They also incorporate other unexpected covers into the mix. This is the first night of a six night run known as Fall Ball III at the Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY. The band is sure to have many tricks up its sleeve. As you probably know, watching a webcast at the Crazy Horse on the large HD projection screen with club sound is the next best thing to being there; according to some, even better. All ages welcome but be sure to bring ear protection if accompanied by small children.

Portland’s pigWar is synonymous with pure psychedelic soul. Named after the bloodless war of 1859 in the San Juan Islands, their live shows are explosive with all original tunes pulling from the obscure corners of Teddy Pendergrass, Led Zeppelin, The Faces, Lee Scratch Perry, Dilla and Parliament/Funkadelic. This hard R&B and spaced out soul music is laden with dusty synthesizers and angular horn lines. pigWar taps in to traditional 1970s soul/funk while also carving out a unique, modern sound.
Opener: The Quick & Easy Boys
We are excited to welcome back this power trio from Portland, OR. The Quick & Easy Boys create their own unique blend of high energy rock ‘n roll. Imagine something like the love child of The Police and Band of Gypsies.

Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Jeremy Jones has manifested some memorable moments at the Crazy Horse. He’s made quite the impression with his electrifying Mardi Gras performances over the past three years. Drawing inspiration from his New Orleans birthplace and current dwelling in San Francisco, he has created a signature sound of “swampedelic rock & soul.” His influences – including The Meters, CCR, Dr. John, The Allman Brothers Band and the Grateful Dead – are all evident. On this night, the focus will be on the latter as Jones and his band of phenomenal musicians dedicate one of their sets to a Bayou-style romp through the Dead’s illustrious songbook. Joined by the Swamp Zen horns, this music very well might wake the dead.
October 12 @ 9:30 pm
This Americana bluegrass trio from Montana is the salt of the earth. Built around the ferocious mandolin picking of Cory Chopp and hypnotic three-part harmonies, their music carries a timeless authenticity. Whether delivering powerful originals or refreshing takes on classic covers, Moonshine Mountain maintain a magnetic stage presence which elevates every audience.
Opener: Brad Parsons Band
This Portland-based singer/songwriter/guitarist is an artist who can’t help but take over a room with his disarming energy and fun-loving stage presence. Playing mostly original music, the Brad Parsons Band embodies a soulful blend of rootsy Americana rock with a bluesy twang.
