Tahoe’s Blues Buddy is back

Buddy Emmer is keeping the blues alive once again.

Harrah’s Tuesday Night Blues, which began in 2014, returns this week with special guest Jeramy Norris.

The weekly three-set show’s six-year run hit pause when the pandemic shut down live shows. The first to be canceled was the March 24, 2020, appearance by none other than Norris, a Stockton guitar legend, whose hometown band is named The Dangerous Mood.

The Oct. 12 show begins at 8 p.m. with a set by the Buddy Emmer Band, which includes vocalist Kim Emmer, who wears fancy shoes and belts out songs like Etta James. The second set will feature Norris, who will be playing the Center Stage with Emmer’s band for the ninth time. The third set, which sometimes goes until midnight, is a jam of blues standards and improvisation. Emmer is a versatile guitarist with a heavy Texas blues influence. He moved from the Lone Star State to Northern Nevada, where he’s established himself as the Biggest Little Guitar Gunslinger in the region. And he plays harp, too.

Richie Blue is the guest star on Oct.19. A Fresno resident, Blue plays a blend of rockabilly, country swing, New Orleans swamp and soul. His slide guitar was featured when he played with The Fabulous Beaumont Brothers. Blue has been a bandleader since 1994. However, he’s an in-demand session player who has recorded and/or toured with Amos Garrett, Norton Buffalo, Steve Miller, Elvin Bishop and a pair of players who have appeared at Emmer’s Tuesday Night Blues: saxophonist Terry Hanck and slide guitarist Johnny “V” Vernazza.

Chuck Dunn, the longtime guitarist with The Blues Monsters, will be the guest star on Oct. 26. It’s only fitting that Dunn, who has a penchant for dressing up, will appear on Halloween week.

More artists will be announced. Check out the free show each week at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe in Stateline.

Jeramy Norris long-awaited night appearance is tonight.
