All good: ALO brings Rainbow Girls to Tahoe Sunday night
When Crown Room sound engineer Blake Beeman calls a band one of his all-time favorites, it’s time to go see it.
ALO performs Sunday at the Crystal Bay Casino. Tickets remain on sale but a sellout could occur.
The band plays a bit of everything fun. While the description takes many forms, the word pop always is used.
“We’ve never fit into any quickly digestible category,” keyboard and ukulele player Zach Gill said on the ALO’s website. “It’s just a different kind of experience.”
Lebo plays guitar and pedal steel, Dave Brogan the drums, and Steve Adams, who also plays with Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, is on bass. Each member sings.
Its fourth album is “Sounds Like This.”
“There has always been a division between the fans that get to know us through our live shows vs. the fans that get to know us through our albums,” Lebo said. “This album is going to bridge that gap.”
While ALO is well known to Tahoe music fans, the opening band, Rainbow Girls, are newer to the scened.
The band grew out of an open mic in Isla Vista. The group busked through Europe, playing in 15 cities and six countries.
