The hole in South Shore’s music scene has been filled. McP’s Taphouse Grill, twice displaced by redevelopment, has a new permanent home in a prime location on the state line across the street from Harveys Resort Hotel and Casino. The 6,000-foot venue features live music five nights a week. Here are images from the first Friday night show with Trey Stone, who probably played in the old McP’s as much as any other artist. Via Facebook, Trey told Tahoe Onstage, “Great atmosphere ! Nice concert vibe lots of space ! Dancing and fun!”
