Denver-based Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams bring their boundless and electrifying country music to Valhalla Tahoe this week with a concert on Wednesday, Aug. 10, at 7:30 p.m. at the Boathouse Theatre.

“Equal parts Hank Williams and Johnny Depp, front man Halden Wofford pours forth a potent mix of rocked-up honky tonk, western swing, Dylanesque originals and spaghetti western epics. There is no creative limit to the songwriter, illustrator, author, storyteller and singer,” according to a press release from Valhalla Tahoe.

The venue’s site notes dancing is likely to occur at the show, and the press release makes it clear why: “Each outrageous tale [Wofford] spins is met by the whine and wail of the steel guitar, the furious double-neck electric guitar and mandolin, and the relentless thump of the upright bass and drums.”

Wofford, Los Angeles-born and Texas-raised, has played country music in Denver since 1995 and joined the Hi*Beams in 1999, according to the band’s online biography.

“Whether appearing on A Prairie Home Companion, at regional festivals and concerts, or at funky clubs from New Mexico to Montana and all points in between, the Hi*Beams are always high-energy, danceable and entertaining,” according to the bio.

Valhalla Festival favorite and Nevada City band The Heifer Belles will open the show with back porch americana tunes.

Tickets for the show are $20, and the Valhalla Boathouse Theatre is located at 1 Valhalla Road.

Parking at Valhalla is limited, and additional parking is available in the Highway 89 lot.
