About the event
The Blues Monsters have been taking center stage for over 30 years! A red-hot rockin' blues band from the North Lake Tahoe and Reno area, The Blues Monsters were voted the #1 blues band in North Lake Tahoe for 7 years running "Blues Access" a national publication reviewed their 2nd CD "Live Vibrations" and could it be said any better, "this band has all the ingredients for a great show." The Reno Gazette Journal stated "this CD should be used as a teaching tool for anyone who wanted to record a live CD." Their first CD "Red Hot Hat" received substantial airplay on KTHX Reno as well as "Mick Martin's Blues Party" the blues show broadcast on NPR radio in Sacramento and sold thousands of copies.
As an example of such diversity, though primarily a blues rock band, the funk instrumental selection off the CD 'Red Hot Hat," entitled "Blue Monster" written by Barry Slayton was used on the benefit CD " Tahoe Jazz 2000" featuring a host of artists such as the Yellow Jackets, Michael Franks, Marilyn Scott and others.
Members of the band have shared the stage with a Monster cast of musicians- Journey's Neal Schon, the Drifters, David Coverdale of Whitesnake, Jimmy Page, Creedence Clearwater's Doug Clifford and Stu Cook, Stephen Stills, Lydia Pense and Cold Blood, Bo Diddley, Grateful Dead's Bob Wier, Booker T and the MGs, The Commitments, Kenny Loggins, Kenny Neal, Tinsley Ellis, Pablo Cruise and more!
It's amazing to find such a powerfully unique combination of R&B, funk, jazz, and Chicago-style blues high in the mountains. Polished, tight, yet bursting at the seams, their originals are fresh and new, even though it's still the blues. Their covers are framed in signature arrangements that demonstrated the depth of the band's talent.
Whether paying respects to the masters of traditional blues, or rockin' out other tunes, The Blues Monsters get the whole house up and dancing. They're a red hot time – a great reason to choose
