The Insomniacs - Ghost Ranch Saloon, 9 p.m. Wednesday
When The Insomniacs play rhythm and blues music based in the 1940s and '50s, the Portland, Ore., four-piece band functions as a unit, rather than a collection of soloists.
"A lot of that has to do with the rhythms and the melodies that are played and the way the instruments are used," bassist Dean Mueller said before the band played its first Steamboat show in early June. "It's kind of more about the song and the band than it is individual solos." Listen to "At Least I'm Not With You," from the group's spring 2009 CD release of the same title, at www.exploresteamboat.com. Tickets to see the band are $5. Call 879-9898. 56 Seventh St.
