‘Renegade’ promoter returns to Public Eye

Lake Tahoe Action

Renegade Productions promoter Robbie Polomsky is back in the Public Eye.

Public Eye’s heyday was the 1980s and early ’90s, playing original rock, blues and reggae. Polomsky was the lead singer and guitarist for the Tahoe group. He went on to form Renegade Productions, which puts on more than 120 shows a year.

Polomsky said he spent part of last winter in Hawaii, where he got back in to playing guitar every day and remembered how much fun it was.

“When I came back, I put the band back together, and we have been rocking ever since,” he said.

Public Eye plays twice this weekend: a free show Friday, Jan. 18, at the Hacienda in Incline Village, and Saturday at the Sawtooth Ridge in Tahoe City, which was called Humpty’s during Public Eye’s first run. The doors open at 8:30 p.m., with the show starting at 9:30. The cover is $10

The band has more than 400 songs to choose for its set list and has always been open to guest musicians, so bring your instrument if you want to jam.
