The Evening Shades is a band that defies categorization. Each member of the Medford-based band — Mark Anthony on vocals and guitar, Matthew Tayvis on bass and keyboard, Stephen Kay on lead guitar and Brandon Amador on drums — cites a different set of musical influences from the rest, which leads to an eclectic array of material. No two songs on the band's debut EP "Time" sound alike. "Hit Me" is a piano-driven ballad reminiscent of Coldplay, while "Cold Winter's Night" has the band exploring hard rock territory. Because of this, fans of different music genres can find something to like from The Evening Shades.

The Evening Shades plays at 9 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25 at Club 66, 1951 Ashland St., Ashland. There is a $5 cover charge.
