COMBINING swampy trills of Southern-steeped pedal steel with swirling guitar leads and funk rhythms, Winston-Salem’s Marvelous Funkshun borrow from the greats to make a fresh kind of bar band sound.

Lead guitarist Sam Robinson and pedal steel player Shawn Hickman snake bluesy, glossed-up riffs around Will Bagley’s stunning bass chops and Zach Landon’s tight tempos. James Harrell’s organ strains bring in the soul and shake that sound through the roof.

Having shared the stage with Snoop Dogg, The Roots, and Perpetual Groove, the five-piece fit nicely on a diverse array of bills; if you’re looking to dance all night to a live band of natural showmen, Marvelous Funkshun is sure to be a treat.

Friday, September 25, 10 p.m., free
