“Mighty” Mike Schermer is set to join the Buddy Emmer Blues Band during its weekly performance at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe Tuesday, March 15.

Schermer has a long history in blues, drawing influences from masters like Albert Collins and T-Bone Walker, as well as artists like Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Wilson Pickett, Jimmy Smith, Charles Brown and Howlin’ Wolf.

“Mighty Mike Schermer was a fixture on the Bay Area blues scene for over 20 years when he relocated to Austin TX in 2009 and joined the touring band of swamp-boogie piano legend Marcia Ball,” according to his online biography. “He carved out a solid solo career, with four critically acclaimed CDs, an award winning single and thousands of performances at festivals and nightclubs the world over. He also became the ‘go to guy’ sideman for such heavyweights as Elvin Bishop, Maria Muldaur, Angela Strehli, Bonnie Raitt, Howard Tate, Charlie Musselwhite, Sista Monica, Shana Morrison and many, many more.”

Tuesday’s show is set to start at 8 p.m. The performance is free to attend.

“(Schermer) has toured through a host of festivals including 3 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festivals, 5 San Francisco Blues Festivals, the Poretta Soul Festival in Italy, the Park Tower Blues Festival in Tokyo and as a hometown favorite at 8 Santa Cruz Blues Festivals,” according to the bio.

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