Sammy Hagar refuses to leave Rival Sons orphans

Rival Sons

The Rival Sons as a four piece in 2010.

The hard rock band Rival Sons will perform in Tahoe Friday, Sept. 6 in a unusual show in Harrah’s Lake Tahoe’s South Shore Room.

The three-piece band is on Sammy Hagar’s Four Decades of Rock tour, which includes a show at nearby Thunder Valley Casino. Rival Sons are not on the bill for Thunder Valley, so the Red Rocker reached out to his Cabo Wabo partners at Harveys Lake Tahoe and landed a gig for the Rival Sons.

Cabo Wabo’s venue is too small for the national band so Director of Entertainment John Packer secured the South Shore Room. Tickets will be $10 and will include one cocktail.

The Rival Sons have three albums. The Los Angeles band also has toured with Kid Rock, AC/DC and Alice Cooper. It is comprised of Jay Buchanan, Scott Holiday and Mike Miley. Bassist Robin Everhart left the band earlier this month.
