Some outlaw country players will ride into South Lake Tahoe on Saturday, when Keith Burrows Music will fire off tunes at Whiskey Dick’s Saloon.

South Shore’s Mic Smith, a solo acoustic guitarist, will open the 9 p.m. show for the 21-and-over crowd. Smith, a singer-songwriter, previously has opened several times for Strange Weather, a rock band that has been taking Tahoe by storm in recent months.

Keith Burrows Music is Burrows and Pete Fenner on guitar, Terry Hough on keyboards, and Jesse Longeway on bass — plus a drummer to be named later.

Burrows said he had been “traveling all over, playing my guitar,” when he met the core of his current group in Texas. He found Hough in Houston. The keys player and band director produced some material for Burrows and wrote several songs on a CD in progress. Hough played on the original Outlaws tour with Waylon Jennings and also at the Belize Jazz festival.

Before moving to California, Burrows met Fenner in Spring, Texas, playing with him in the Lone Star state before convincing his buddy after “three years of prodding” to join his band. Fenner performed with a number of prominent musicians, including Dan Fogelberg, Howlin’ Wolf, Rodney Crowell and Emmy Lou Harris.

Longeway hails from the Sierra foothills and joined Keith Burrows Music recently, rehearsing for upcoming shows.

“As for my drummer, I won’t say anything.” Burrows noted. “You will just have to come out and see her.”

Burrows is a native of Glenwood Springs, Colorado, where he said he was raised by “killer bees and fire ants.”

“Tahoe reminds me of home. We would like to play here a few times a year,” he said. The band will feature songs from Burrows’ 2013 “Hills of Texas” CD, along with tunes from the upcoming “High Country” album.

It also will cover a number of artists, from Hank Williams Jr. to Jimi Hendrix. “Heck, maybe we’ll do some Grateful Dead — depends on the crowd.”

Whiskey Dick’s Saloon is located at 2660 Lake Tahoe Blvd.
