When Strange Weather breaks out in Lake Tahoe, “all hail breaks loose.”

Strange Weather makes its Crystal Bay Casino debut at 10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 15, in the Red Room. There is no cover charge.

Strange Weather album coverBe the first to procure a copy of the band’s newly released, self-titled CD, featuring originals that include “Shi Shi Dogs,” “Watch This Space,” “Sleeping on the Lawn” and “Hummingbird.” Fans can expect covers to include tributes to David Bowie and Lemmy.

A 1970s-flavored rock band that formed earlier this year, Strange Weather has been taking Tahoe by storm, packing venues that included Himmel House, Whiskey Dick’s Saloon, the American Legion and most recently the Lakeview Loft at Stateline.

Promising a “rock and roll revolution,” band members Todd Christensen on bass, John “Chili” Munroe on guitar, Jon Gardner on drums and frontman Vinny Berry hit the road in October for a tour that ranged from Southern California to San Francisco, returning in time for a Halloween show for their hometown South Shore fans.

On Friday Jan 15, the whirlwind will touch down at North Shore’s Crystal Bay Casino, where the band will perform a free show in the Red Room from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Strange Weather will unleash a number of original tunes, including a self-titled track inspired by a July hail storm in Tahoe.

It also covers such artists as Led Zeppelin and Rick Derringer, whose 1973 “Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo” suggests: “Lordy mama, light my fuse. Drop on out and spread the news.”
