Rambo Party Productions and Wormhole Tahoe Present:
The Five Alarm Freak Show at the Tahoe Biltmore featuring a colorful, deeply eclectic, and ridiculously fun lineup from two theatrical, 8-piece live bands, one of Nevada City's finest bass music producers, and Tahoe's longest Wormhole resident.
The Vancouver-based band is eight men strong and over a decade deep into a career that has seen it release five acclaimed albums and burn up stages across the country on six national tours. And this vehicle isnt about to slow down. In fact, Five Alarm Funk is just picking up steam. Just having released their 6th studio album in March, named "Sweat", the album gets right to the roots of what Five Alarm Funk is all about: epic, intense arrangements, heavy groove and a ton of fun.
Sneaky Creatures is a new mischievous gypsy jazz / alt-country septet from Tahoe Vista / Kings Beach, and they are creeping into the North Tahoe music scene with their unusual blend of the rootsy and the jazzy, the gypsy and the honky, the funky and the rock-a-billy.
Featuring Josh Roelle (Horsemouth, Truckee Tribe) on electric guitar, Kerry Andras (The Rusty Strings) on stand-up bass, Kevin Drake (Downbeat) on saxophones, Todd Holway (Quartet Minus One) on keyboards, Lena Meyer on trombone and trumpet, Jesse Steele on trumpet, and Steve Saturno (Quartet Minus One) on drums, this lineup of seasoned Tahoe musicians come together to create a sound that is at once unique and original, and also strangely familiar.
While watching these guys furtively slink from genre to genre, you can expect to hear many fine examples of Roelles songwriting skills, a plethora of obscure covers, and the occasional crowd pleaser. Youll want to swing your partner, laugh your head off, and duck for cover all at the same time.
Opening set from some local DJ's.
