Brothers Gow

Home base: San Diego, Calif.

Genre: Funk - rock -improv -reggae

Established: 2007

The spectacle: An energetic stage presence that combines with powerful vocal harmonies, complex arrangements, ripping guitar solos and “eye-dilating” lighting using a three-tier intelligent lighting rig and advanced software. This genre-bending quintet relies on thoughtful lyrics, deep grooves and improvisational tact to make each show fresh.

Members: Alex Gow Bastine (keys, vox), Carson Church (bass), Kyle Merrill (guitar, vox, trumpet), Ethan Wade (guitar, vox), and Nathan Walsh-Haines (drums, vox). Lighting designer and additional band member, Matt Collier (MC6).

The latest: The band is on the edge of releasing its fourth album “Reflections,” featuring “a mix of up-tempo ballads, proggy instrumentals, angelic harmonies and introspective lyrics.”

Gig: --- 9 tonight and Friday, John’s Alley Tavern, Moscow. Free. --- 9:30 p.m. Saturday, the Top Hat, 134 W. Front St., Missoula, Mont. Free.
