Alastair Greene makes his second appearance at Harrah’s Tuesday Night Blues on Nov. 21.
Fresh off a seven-year run with the Alan Parsons Project, Alastair Greene will be supported by the Buddy Emmer Blues Band.
A versatile musician, Greene is moving back into the blues-rock realm that he fell for when he started playing guitar as a teenager. “It’s time for me to spread my wings and do my thing,” Greene told Tahoe Onstage by phone from his home in Southern California.
A resident of Southern California, Greene sent Emmer of few of his original songs to learn, but aims to keep things loose.
“I like to err on the side of just making everyone feel comfortable,” Greene said. “It’s more fun playing blues with people as if it is a language. If you’ve got good players that know the language, you know then it’s just it’s going to be great. Everyone’s going to be relaxed and it’s going to be familiar stuff and whoever that bandleader person is gets to do their thing kind of on top of that.”
Emmer’s band has used the same format at its 3½-year Tuesday night residency at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe. He’s rotated a growing network of about 25 artists to jam with his band for free shows on the casino floor. Austin’s Mighty Mike Schermer and San Jose’s Daniel Castro put Greene in touch with Emmer.
“Everybody’s wanting to get in on it,” Emmer said. “I’m just hoping it keeps flying.”
