Multi-styled Bruce Hornsby in Tahoe for an ‘Evening’

Lake Tahoe Action
Bruce Hornsby's wanderlust brings him to the South Shore Room on Friday.

Bruce Hornsby in January will travel the high seas on a sold-out Caribbean Jam Cruise before heading off to the United Kingdom for some more performances.

But on Friday, Dec. 30, he’s on the mainland for a concert in Harrah’s Lake Tahoe’s South Shore Room.

That’s just the way it is.

Bruce Hornsby and the Range hit the big time with a No. 1 single in 1986, “The Way It Is,” a song about the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Hornsby followed that with more radio-popular songs, “Mandolin Rain” and “Every Little Kiss.”

Later in the decade Hornsby wrote the Huey Lewis hit “Jacobs Ladder,” produced a comeback record by Leon Russell and co-wrote and played on Don Henley’s “End of the Innocence.”

He jammed with the Grateful Dead several times before joining the legendary band for more than 100 shows until the death of Jerry Garcia. He has been on a jazz and bluegrass bent ever since.

Hornsby’s band since 2000 has been the Noisemakers, which has released four albums.

In 2007 he collaborratted with Ricky Skaggs for a bluegrass tribute to Bill Monroe.
