The Nth Power
Tuesday, December 12 / 9:00 pm-12:00 am
/ $20 – $25
Proving that soul music can be exponentially greater than the sum of its parts, The Nth Power is on a mission to illuminate audiences in a way rarely felt in this generation. Formed during an impromptu late-night jam at Jazz Fest in 2012, the relentlessly funky, soulful, climactic rock band believes in music as a higher power. They effortlessly tap in to an energy that is simultaneously sexy and spiritual; ferocious and full of finesse. These songs mainline inspiration into every audience, leaving no choice but to dance or just stand there in amazement.
Widely regarded by both fans and peers as one of the hottest drummers currently residing on planet earth, Nikki Glaspie (Snarky Pupppy, Punkadelic, Trouble No More Allman Brothers Tribute) has the cred to back that up and then some. In her former lives, she was Beyonce’s world-touring drummer for five years before joining Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk. The joy she emits while playing only accentuates the superhuman beats she throws down. Nate Edgar (John Brown’s Body) is flat out one of the funkiest bassists you will ever have the pleasure of laying eyes and ears on. He also happens to be one of our favorite humans. Then you have singer and guitarist Nick Cassarino – a pure embodiment of what soul is all about. He has achieved a tone on his instrument which is the product of a lifetime of refinement. He owns a distinction not too many other guitarists can claim, having traded licks onstage with the legendary Trey Anastasio. And it couldn’t hurt to tell you that he has also toured with Big Daddy Kane.
The Nth Power last played the Crazy Horse over two years ago and it was a Sunday night we’ll never forget. This time you’re going to need to clear your schedule for this Tuesday show which will be one of the highlights of the year. This is the kind of performance you would typically only have access to in a big city, so we are extremely blessed to have talent of this caliber coming to our little Sierra Foothills hamlet!
