Brace for it: Strange Weather sure to hit Lake Tahoe

Strange Weather hits the stage tonight.
Strange Weather hits the stage tonight.

Tonight’s forecast calls for Strange Weather with a 100 percent chance of rock and roll.

For the past year, the band has taken South Shore by storm, bringing in its wake a freak July hail assault in 2015, the best snowfall in more than a half-dozen years and helping to fill Lake Tahoe back to its natural rim before the summer tourist invasion. The quartet set out to stage a rock and roll revolution in its hometown. Having accomplished that, Strange Weather is headed to Hollywood soon to seek fame and fortune (SoCal surely could use a little storm water of its very own.)

But this evening, the band will assemble at Whiskey Dick’s Saloon for one final show for local friends and followers. Cover charge is $5 (mere gas money for the southward trek), and fans must be 21 or older.

Frontman Vinny Berry will direct traffic onstage, accompanied by John “Chili” Munroe on lead guitar, Todd Christensen on bass and Jon Gardner on drums. The last time Strange Weather played at Whiskey Dick’s, Munroe smashed his guitar on the dance floor at the end of the night. It seemed like the thing to do, he said at the time.

Since then, the band has packed the Vinyl at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, where the headlines read something about a takeover by long-haired hooligans. They’ve rocked out the Red Room twice at Crystal Bay Casino in North Shore and packed the American Legion in South Shore several times. They’ve also shown some love to Reno.

The band dropped its first CD, self-titled, with Berry’s snow-faced and smiling pup posing for cover art. Tonight, you can expect some original songs such as “Shi Shi Dogs” and “Sleeping On The Lawn” and some covers of bands such as Free, Led Zeppelin and Rick Derringer. So go out and spread the news.
