Blues coming to Dangberg Home Ranch on Thursday
The Mylo McCormick Project will bring blues, funk and rock music to Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park on Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
The Mylo McCormick Project is a four-piece band, led by singer-songwriter and musician Mylo McCormick who has also performed with Moz Motley Blues band. McCormick has earned a reputation as a masterful young guitarist with tasteful riffs and solos comparable to Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan. He has performed funk and blues at venues around Lake Tahoe, the Comstock area and throughout Carson Valley.
Other members of The Mylo McCormick Project include Don LaLonde on drums and vocals, John Shipley on keyboard and vocals and Chris Osti on bass.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have this band join our Summer Festival. There will be a lot of talent up there on the stage Thursday evening,” said the park’s events manager, Kim Harris.
This event is part of the park’s Dangberg Summer Festival and is sponsored by Douglas County, Carson Valley Accounting, Full Circle Soils & Compost, Horse Tales Publications, Jacobs Berry Farm, Cowboy’s Café, Personal Pedigree Genealogy and the Frances C. and William P. Smallwood Foundation.
