The jazz and hip-hop group The Lique returns to Sacramento to share music from their new album, "Times Like These."

Rasar, the band's MC, grew up in the Sacramento area and once performed under the stage name Random AbiladezeA few years ago, Rasar relocated to Las Vegas where he met his bandmates, bassist Nick Schmidt, drummer Jeremy Klewicki, guitarist Sean Carbone and keyboardist Jason Corpuz.

Next week, The Lique will host an all-ages album release party for "Times Like These" on Friday, May 4, at Momo Sacramento

The lead single from the new album is "The Lick," which recounts the story of how the band got their name.
