Powerful, Soulful and Sassy: the Reno-Tahoe Blues Festival is Back!

Blues FestBack for its 6thyear, the Reno-Tahoe Blues Fest brings nine blues artists to Robert Z. Hawkins Amphitheater at Bartley Ranch Regional Park for three intimate nights of live music Aug. 27 – 29, 2010. Performances include headliners Barbara Carr, Floyd Taylor and Miss E.C. Scott. Additional artists are Tia Carroll, Ronnie Baker Brooks, Ms. Jody, Chick Willis, Zac Harmon, Alabama Mike and The 3rd Degree and host Larry La La. Tickets are now available online

Scott is a fixture on the Bay Area blues scene in San Francisco and Oakland and honed her chops singing her blend of classic soul and gospel mixed with a dose of 90s funkiness. She began singing in clubs at just 16 and released her debut “Come Get Your Love” in 1995 after building a strong following and touring for several years on the festival circuit. Since then she’s continued on to release three more albums including “The Other Side of Me.”

After more than 50 years of performing, Carr still brings crowds of fans to their feet with her soulful blues voice. She started her musical career in the church as The Crosby Sisters in St. Louis. She became interested in R&B and later founded her own group, The Comets Combo, based on the inspiration from blues greats. From then on she performed with numerous groups and as a solo artist even making her way into country for a time. Truly dynamic, Carr is now recognized internationally for her amazing blues sound.

Taylor returns to Reno after performing at the fest’s 2008 kickoff party. The son of legendary bluesman Johnny Taylor, he began singing in church at the age of five. He honed his skills throughout his school years and then on the blues stages of Chicago. In 1998 he was named Chicago Blues Society’s Entertainer of the Year.

Blues Fest 2For 2010 the fest has changed its format offering a more intimate experience in the Robert Z. Hawkins Amphitheater at Bartley Ranch Regional Park. Accommodating just over 900, the setting features an amphitheater-style area as well as general admission lawn area. 

The fest kicks off nightly at 6:30 p.m. and presents three artists each night. Tickets are on sale now with three-day reserved seat packages just $125 per person. Single day tickets are $30 per day for general admission lawn and $45 per day for reserved seating. Parking on site is free. For more information, click here.

The Reno-Tahoe Blues Fest, founded in 2005, was created to bring world-class blues to the Reno-Tahoe region and to celebrate the history, culture and spirit of the blues. The multi-day festival attracts audiences from around the country to hear some of the biggest names in blues including Etta James, Clarence Carter, Buddy Guy, Bobby Rush, Keb Mo, Mavis Staples, Jonny Lang and others. Established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Reno-Tahoe Blues Fest supports music education for youth in the Reno-Tahoe area through a scholarship program and ongoing assistance for school music equipment purchases and jazz band programs. Funds for the festival are raised through corporate sponsorships and ticket sales. 

Country Legends Oak Ridge Boys Play Three Nights at John Ascuaga’s Nugget

Oak Ridge BoysThe Oak Ridge Boys possess one of the most distinctive and recognizable sounds in the music industry. Their upbeat songs and four-part harmonies have delivered multiple country hits and a #1 pop smash, while earning Grammy, Dove, CMA and ACM awards and garnering a host of other industry and fan accolades. Catch the venerable Oak Ridge Boys, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, August 12-14, in the Celebrity Showroom at John Ascuaga’s Nugget.

Formed more than a half-decade ago as a country gospel group, the “Oaks” underwent many stylisic, label and lineup changes before scoring a breakout top-five hit in 1977 with “Y’all Come Back Saloon.” The follow-up, “You’re the One,” reached number two, and their next album, 1978’s Room Service, gave them their first number one hit in “I’ll Be True to You” as well as two more top-five hits in “Cryin’ Again” and “Come On In.”

Thus established as crossover country hitmakers, the Oaks embarked on a run of chart success that would last through the 1980s. They hit number one again in 1980 with “Trying to Love Two Women.” But it was the following year that would make them a genuine phenomenon. Their recording of “Elvira,” an obscure, doo-wop style novelty song from the 1960s, became a major, Grammy-winning smash. Not only did it hit number one on the country charts, but its infectious “oom-pop-a-mow-mow” bass vocal hook boosted it into the top five on the pop charts. Its accompanying album, Fancy Free, became their first to top the country charts, not to mention their biggest seller ever. The title cut of their chart-topping 1982 follow-up, Bobbie Sue, also went number one country and nearly made the pop top ten as well. American Made’s title track also topped the charts in 1983, as did its follow-up, Love Song. In early 1984 Deliver became their third number one country album, and they landed two more number one singles that year with “Everyday” and “I Guess It Never Hurts to Hurt Sometimes.” 1985 brought three number ones: “Little Things,” “Make My Life With You,” and “Touch a Hand, Make a Friend.”

The Oak Ridge Boys’ sales began to slow a bit in the latter half of the ’80s, but their popularity endured and they still produced big hits with regularity. They hit number one with 1987‘s “It Takes a Little Rain,” and “This Crazy Love”, 1988’s “Gonna Take a Lot of River”, and 1990’s “No Matter How High”, giving them a total of 16 career country chart-toppers and 29 top ten hits. To this day, every time they step before an audience, the Oak Ridge Boys bring 25 years of hits and 50-plus years of tradition to bear.

With their latest album, the evergreen Oak Ridge Boys prove that they are not only enduring, they are evolving. The Boys Are Back is a roots-music revelation wherein the veteran quartet explores blues, country, Gospel and rock textures. Producer David Cobb brought the group styles and songs it has never attempted before, from John Lee Hooker’s “Boom Boom” to Neil Young’s “Beautiful Bluebird,” from Jamey Johnson’s stone-country “Mama’s Table” to the blues classic “Troubl’in Mind.” “Hold You in My Arms” comes from pop star Ray Lamontagne. Country rebel Shooter Jennings wrote the collection’s title tune especially for the Oaks. “Live with Jesus” and “You Ain’t Gonna Blow My House Down” are Nashville songs, while “Hold Me Closely” comes from Los Angeles. This album’s innovative repertoire is perhaps best illustrated by The Oak Ridge Boys’ striking version of The White Stripes’ song “Seven Nation Army.”

The Oak Ridge Boys play three nights, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, August 12-14, in the Celebrity Showroom at 8 p.m. Tickets are just $50 and are available by calling (800) 648-1177 or (775) 356-3300.
