Portland’s Scott Pemberton is set to return to Lake Tahoe this week as part of a celebration for a South Shore musician and music promoter.

The eclectic guitarist plays Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe’s Vinyl venue Friday night, April 29.

“We’re like surf-y acid-rock funk with afro-beat concepts,” Pemberton told the Sierra Sun of his live act in January. “I think that’s part of what people find interesting about our shows. It goes in so many directions but it all fits together.

“In one show you’ll hear metal and funk and surf and it all works. I think that’s part of why we’ve been able to have some appeal.”

Pemberton has made regular appearances at Lake Tahoe over the past few years, and his reach extends well outside of the West Coast.

“Beyond stages both local and international, his music has found its way into various movies, television programs and advertisements (Nike, Coke, Jaguar and NASCAR ads have been propelled by his distinctive melodies), and his funky guitar work has led to collaborations with legendary drummers such as Motown’s Mel Brown and Bernard Purdie, AKA ‘the world’s most recorded drummer,’” according to his online biography. “He’s played prime spots at major festivals across the U.S. and Canada, hit No. 4 on Billboard’s Tastemakers’ charts and ranked among the top performers on Jambase, peaking at No. 2 during the High Sierra Music Festival, where he stormed the stage.”

The show doubles as a birthday party for South Shore’s Ryan Kronenberg.

Doors to the show open at 8:30 p.m., and music starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are available at the door.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe is located at 50 U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline.
