The four-piece band will play a set of original sonngs and a second set of Lou Reed and Velvet Underground songs at a free show on Friday. The show represents the band’s Crystal Bay Casino Red Room debut.

The Drifters includes Chris Seal (guitar, harmonica and vocals), Andy Hatch (guitar, mandolin and vocals), Nate Alcorn (upright bass and vocals) and Ryan Kronenberg (drums).
