In just 18 months, sharply dressed jazz/funk/hip-hop quintet The Lique has dominated Las Vegas’ music scene. They’ve taken over Downtown dives and held a residency at the Sayers Club. They’ve even performed at Brooklyn Bowl—the one in New York (though they’ve done quite a few gigs here, too). Whether it’s the smooth bounce of “Billie’s Holiday” or the frantic freakout of “Walk Into My Office,” the band’s grooves and MC Rasar’s lyrically dexterous and humorous performance will win you over instantly. With their crowd-funded debut, Democracy Manifest, out now, we can keep them in our pockets, too. TheLique.com.
