A night of funk, reggae and hip-hop with a trio of must-see Wilmington acts is lined up for the city’s biggest Thanksgiving Eve stage — the 800-person downstairs at the Queen.

What Mama Said, returns to FireStone Roasting House, 110 S. West St., Wilmington, for this year’s annual Thanksgiving Eve party. The Newark party band, which ran from 2007 to 2014, is doing it one more time, so expect to see some familiar faces from the past decade or so.

10 p.m. High Reeper, Lifestream and The LimitsKelly’s Logan House, 1701 Delaware Ave., Wilmington. If you ever saw hard-rocking Newark band American Buffalo before the act broke up about five years ago, you’d surely remember. Heads usually turn the first time singer Zach Thomas shows off his range with a melodic howl that reaches higher and higher. Thomas is back behind a microphone with the High Reeper, a harder edge head-bang affair than the My Morning Jacket-esque American Buffalo. It will be the debut performance for the band, which also includes former American Buffalo members Andrew Price and Pat Daly on guitar.
