The Resolvers: Bandleader Ron Eisner's 10-piece reggae act from Deerfield Beach released a pair of new albums, "Nate's House" and "Bigger Is Better," on Tuesday. The group's funky, New Orleans jazz-indebted jams are being billed as a "prequel" and "sequel," respectively, to their 2012 EP, "Big Band Reggae." The new material charts the band's evolution over the past four years, including the addition of a horn section and expanded vocal harmonies. They're performing a series of record-release shows this week, one of which is 8 p.m. Thursday at Culture Room (3045 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale). They'll open for the California roots-reggae act Groundation. $20. 954-564-1074 or CultureRoom.net. -- Phillip Valys
