San Francisco guitarist Daniel Castro is set to join the Buddy Emmer Blues Band for a night of free music at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe this week.

Castro and the longtime Northern Nevada group play Harrah’s Center Stage this Tuesday, April 19.

“As he grew up in the L.A. area, Daniel was heavily influenced by the blues greats Albert King, B.B. King and Albert Collins,” according to his online biography. “As a kid, Daniel would hang outside clubs like the Golden Bear in Huntington Beach to hear these blues legends perform and wait for a glimpse of them through the curtains. After cutting his teeth in South Central L.A. blues clubs with “Mighty Mouth” Delmar Evans, who worked with the Johnny Otis Show, Castro backed other great artists from Otis’ band, including Pee Wee Crayton and Little Esther Phillips. He also recorded and toured with many other artists including legendary Small Faces singer-bassist Ronnie Lane.”

Buddy Emmer will bring a long history of music to the stage Tuesday.

“The Buddy Emmer Blues Band has been a longtime favorite for the past 15 years on the West Coast and Northern Nevada circuit,” according to the group’s online biography. “A versatile party blues band whose musical style includes every form of blues from the 1930s up to modern blues, this rockin’ blues band will be sure to please any age group at any venue.”

Harrah’s Lake Tahoe is located at 15 U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline.
