For being part of the first Crystal Bay Casino shows to allow full capacity, it’s only fitting that a solo artist was joined onstage by two more musicians.

The Darren Senn Trio included guitarist Dale Poune and upright bassist Kerry Andras. It opened July 3, the second night of a Friday-Saturday run for headliner The Brothers Comatose of San Francisco.

Senn is a folk singer-songwriter from South Lake Tahoe. Virginia City is a typical stomping ground for Dale Poune, who often performs with country artist Lacy J. Dalton. North Shore’s Andras plays with the R&B ensemble Sneaky Creatures. He oversees Music at the Beach, a Friday night series at Kings Beach.

Senn welcomed a packed Crown Room audience, reminding everyone, “It’s Saturday night.” He started the show with some of his favorite tunes “Woke Up Without the Blues,” “Before The World Blows Up,” “Tumblin’ Weed” and “I Gotta Get Organized.” The harmonies were vibrant.

Each musician had turns doing different passionate solos and the room with no chairs for the first time in more than 15 months was filled with dancers.

Poune called Senn “Tahoe’s only troubadour.” The Crown Room is a familiar venue for Senn, who opened a couple of years ago for David Bromberg.

Senn told heartwarming stories about each of the songs that he wrote and played on Saturday, and the trio performed for an hour.
