Live at Lakeview: TapWater, Barnsmoke
July 11, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Live at Lakeview: TapWater, Barnsmoke Lake Tahoe will continue to be filled to the brim this summer, so it’s fine to turn on the TapWater. “Portland’s TapWater sounds like Americana gods The Band if they’d taken a load off in N’awlins and picked up steel drums and a love of funk.” So says Ben Salmon of The Bulletin in Bend, Oregon. “TapWater is a dextrous and shape-shifting band that merges world rhythms with bluegrass and rock for highly dance friendly shows long on chops and energy,” says the The Goodfoot of Portland. TapWater is a “world twang” experience, bringing musical inspiration from around the world right back home to your front porch, or in Tahoe’s case, the beachfront. You may recognize the lead singer as that steel drum player, Rudy Slizewski from the Scott Pemberton Band. Barnsmoke, the openers, is a new newgrass quartet out of South Shore. Patrick Croke plays mandolin; Christopher Paranzino, guitar; Andy Voelkel, banjo; and Chad Lawrence, keyboard.
