CRYSTAL BAY, Nev. — San Francisco-based quintet Midnight North heads to North Shore’s Crystal Bay Club Casino this weekend for a gig showcasing their Americana rock music.

For those who are unfamiliar with the band, the sound is based on inspiration from the Grateful Dead.

“When you come to a Midnight North show, you’ll find Elliott Peck, Grahame Lesh and Alex Jordan sliding into three-part harmonies that are as comfortable as an old pair of jeans.

“You’ll hear bassist Connor O’Sullivan and new drummer Alex Koford making themselves at home in any groove from a stomp to a slow-burn or boogie. Settle in and you might find Midnight North writing a new page in the American songbook,” states the band’s Facebook biography.

The group’s newest and second full-length album, “Scarlet Skies,” debuted in June 2015, a year marked by rapid growth for the five members.

“They landed a coveted late night slot at their first High Sierra Music Festival and became regulars on the California summer festival circuit. The band made a lot of new fans on a successful East Coast summer and a follow-up fall tour and gave Chicago and Southern California a taste while they were at it,” according to Midnight North’s online biography.

The free concert, held on Friday, Nov. 11, begins at 9 p.m. in Crystal Bay Club Casino’s Red Room.
