World's Finest is not an easy band to define, and that seems to be the point.

World's Finest is not an easy band to define, and that seems to be the point. The Portland band — featuring Dan Hurley on banjo and vocals, Chris Couch on guitar and vocals, Sean McLean on saxophone, Mike Apodaca on drums and Evan Malfer on upright bass — keeps an eclectic sound that doesn't fit into a single mold.

Pulling from styles such as reggae, ska, bluegrass and more, World's Finest writes feel-good songs that appear disparate at first, but develop a cohesiveness upon further listening.

World's Finest perform at 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24 at Lounge South, 66 Pioneer St., Ashland. There is a $5 cover.
