Singing-dancing frontman Anthony “RenaGade” Briscoe lists influences as Michael Jackson and Sam Cooke.

Co-leader Brandon Storms plays both bass and guitar and, press materials say, writes much of the music and taps into his love for everything from Hendrix to James Jamerson in making tunes both infectious and substantial.

The recent additions of Drum Off! award-winner Conrad Real (drummer for Ayron Jones and The Way and Society’s Child) and the psychedelic-jazz trills of guitarist Nick Quiller make the band unique addition to the Northwest music scene. Down North expands to a seven piece, integrating horns and other players to help deliver their dazzling grooves.

Its song “Danger” was played on MTV’s “The Real World.” Newer meatier cuts like “So What,” “Your World,” “Running,” and “Heartbreaker/Revolution” (which features the Black Rock psyche-outs of guest legendary axeman Jabrille) reveal the band has become edgier.

“The people that play in this band are excellent at what they do and we’re all here to play music for people who want to move and connect,” Anthony said in a press statement.

THe live music show in Lake Tahoe starts at 9 p.m.
