The Buddy Emmer Blues Band is the host for three sets on Tuesday nights. A guest artist performs each week during the second and third sets. Last night, which featured Reno’s Rick Hammond, was the fifth of seven scheduled weekly shows. New Orleans keyboard and saxophone player John Lee Sanders will be featured March 18 and on March 25 it will be Reno’s Jason King. Harrah’s Lake Tahoe spokesmen John Packer and Brian Chandler said if Tuesday night attendance was good, the show would continue or possibly resume in the summertime, the popular season for visitors at the lake. Most of the chairs have been filed each week and there is healthy amount of Tahoe residents who turn out. Last week, Packer said an extension was expected, and Emmer confirmed it during the last show. Packer is out of town an unavailable for comment today. Emmer said he plans to bring some new artists to the Center Stage in April and May, and while he mentioned some players none have yet been confirmed. The free shows are from 7:30 p.m. to 11:15 p.m.
