The boys in End Of Never didn’t know what they were missing. Birthed out of a weekly basement jam session, End Of Never was a prog-funk hybrid rock band that planned on playing mostly instrumental songs.

Then, Briena Pearl walked in the door.

“When I first heard Briena sing, I knew she would be a perfect match stylistically,” said guitarist Lou Eastman. “She covers the gamut from folk to soul and funk to progressive. Add vocal control, passion, solid delivery, and a sense of humor to the mix and it seemed destined to happen.”

Pearl’s addition gave End Of Never’s sound the extra element it needed to get out of the basement and onto the stage. Now, the group’s equal parts Red Hot Chili Peppers political rap-rock, Band of Gypsies and King Crimson with a wailing banshee up front. Both contemplative and in-your-face, End Of Never isn’t what you think it is, and it’s exactly that.

Along with Pearl and Eastman, the band features Colin Cassidy (Makravah) on drums, Eliot Pelletier on guitar, and Tom Rutledge (William Thompson Funk Experiment) on bass.

End of Never plays at Harlow’s Pub in Peterborough Friday night at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $8. End of Never’s set will be preceded by a set of Reckless Duality, Pearl and Eastman’s side project.
