Two bands that like to use many musical styles – NRBQ and the Boneheads – will be at The Asylum on Friday, Feb. 27.

PORTLAND – The musicians of NRBQ will play in concert with The Boneheads at The Asylum Friday, Feb 27. Doors open at 8 p.m.

For 35 years, NRBQ has melded rock, pop, jazz, blues, rhythm and blues, polka and rockabilly. Having their music included frequently on “The Simpsons,” as well as on the soundtracks for “28 Days” and “Where the Heart is,” NRBQ began a new rise to popularity in 1999.

Together since 1991, the Boneheads are a Maine-based band that brings the styles of folk, rock, blues, country, Cajun and soul together. They also effortlessly manage to trade instruments throughout their set. They’ve opened for performers such as BB King, Roseanne Cash and Bo Diddley.

Tickets: $12. They are available at Bull Moose Music or at the Asylum box office on the day of the show. This is an event for people 21 years and older. The Asylum is at 121 Center St.
