In addition to the weekly reggae and funk nights, downtown venue Chai’s Lounge & Tapas (462 King St., 843-722-7313) announced a special free show for Wed. July 1: the brassy funk/reggae ensemble Spiritual Rez is set to play for free (no cover!) from 8-11 p.m. (ages 21 and up admitted).

Based in Boston, seven from the Spiritual Rez lineup attended prestigious Berklee College of Music, so you know they have the musical chops and intellect to deliver some worldly-wise grooves with grace and technique.
