The Ghost of Paul Revere appeared at Crystal Bay Club Casino at Lake Tahoe on Friday Night to some hootin’ and hollerin’, some of which the apparition channeled from its home in Maine.

An enthusiastic crowd filled the Red Room for a woods-inspired celebration that had never touched down in these parts before. Tahoe Onstage photographer Larry Sabo reports the Ghost showing was unforgettable for those able to enter the aura. Somewhere out there, Paul Revere is smiling as he looks down on Crystal Bay.

The Ghost of Paul Revere is bassist Sean McCarthy, banjo player Max Davis and acoustic guitarist Griffith Sherry. They have been best friends since they were toddlers. Their closeness is conducive to intricate vocal harmonies. While their instruments lead people to assume they are a bluegrass band, they are not. They play a blend of field hollers and rock ‘n’ roll.

In the northeasternmost state, “there’s lots to do in summer, but once it got dark you go inside, make a fire, bring out some instruments and see what happens. … We love stomping,” McCarthy  said.

They also love on adventure. Before embarking on this West Coast tour, the Ghost appeared in Boston. The next night, they were onstage in California. Funny how that happens, but not unusual for this Ghost.

“We can sleep when we’re dead,” McCarthy noted.

Maybe. Maybe not.
