Robin Trower rocks Harrah’s Lake Tahoe

Robin Trower visits Harrah's Lake Tahoe on Saturday, May 27.

Renowned British guitarist Robin Trower is ready to rock Harrah's Lake Tahoe on Saturday, May 27.

"In 1962, Trower formed a group that became The Paramounts, later including fellow Southend High School pupil Gary Brooker. The Paramounts disbanded in 1966 to pursue individual projects.

"During this time, Trower created a local three-piece band called The Jam — not to be confused with the later group with Paul Weller. Trower then joined Brooker's new band Procol Harum in 1967, with whom he remained until 1972," states the artist's Facebook biography.

Together, the band released hits such as "A Whiter Shade of Pale" and "Conquistador."

"Before launching his own eponymous band, he joined singer Frankie Miller, bass player James Dewar, and former Jethro Tull drummer Clive Bunker to form the short-lived combo Jude. This outfit did not record and soon split up," continues the bio.

Dewar stuck with Trower and joined forces with drummer Reg Isidore — together, the three formed the Robin Trower Band in 1973.
