Scott Pemberton Band, Mescalito
June 22, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Held Thursdays at Lakeview Commons in South Lake Tahoe, Live at Lakeview opens the season with the third appearance of the Scott Pemberton Band.
This Portland, Oregon, band is led by a man with a penchant for keeping the laces on his black high-top basketball shoes untied and wearing faded jeans around his skinny legs fastened at the waist by a belt buckle with the initials “S.P.” Pemberton is a hippie superhero known as the Timber Rocker. His kryptonite is a guitar strap, so he plays his ax on a stool. He jams like Jerry Garcia, is as funky as James Brown and as quick as the Rip City’s Trailblazers point guard Damian Lillard. Tahoe Onstage dubbed him “the Bruce Lee of Rock and Roll.”
Pemberton rose to fame after a pair of unforgettable performances at the High Sierra Music Festival. He last appeared at Live at Lakeview in June 2015.
Mescalito is a quintet that blends five types of music: rock, jam, soul, psychedelia and jazz. The five local all stars for the new group are Martin Bush, guitar; Simon Kurth, guitar; Lowell Wilson, keyboards; Keith Ovelmen, bass; and Chris Grant, drums. Wilson also plays with the Wesley Orsolic Band.
