Doobie Brothers bring '70s back
Bringing back the '70s to the Silver Legacy, the Doobie Brothers will make a tour stop in Reno on Tuesday, undoubtedly having traded in the retro van for a top-notch tour bus.  Responsible for adding memorable songs to the already large soundtrack of the 1970s, the Doobie Brothers really started to make a lasting impression when the band hired singer Michael McDonald, who had played with the band Steely Dan, in the mid-1970s.  Asking McDonald ...

Bob Schneider’s musical agenda is to not have one
For Austin, Tex.-based musician Bob Schneider, writing music is much like stumbling onto something accidentally. He doesn’t plan for it. It just happens. “The whole process of writing a song is like uncovering a pothole or dinosaur bones,” he said. “I really have no idea what it is at first. I’m just scooping away at stuff at first and the more I work on it, the more it reveals itself.” That kind of unintentional music making is intentionally ...

‘Classic Christmas’ returns for its second year to the Nugget
Running downstairs on early in the morning to see what Santa left under the tree. Tearing open wrapping paper and boxes. Sitting down to a candle-lit feast with family. Singing carols in the snow. Listening to a choir at church. All these are traditional yuletide images that will come to life for the next two weekends at John Ascuaga’s Nugget in “A Classic Christmas Celebration.” What is different about these images is that the participants wi...

Review: Nutcracker's stars were the cherubs
RDC Production’s interpretation of “The Nutcracker” on Sunday had strong principal dancers, well-constructed backdrops and, of course, the memorable music of Tchaikovsky’s ballet. But for Sparks spectators, the stars of the show were the little cherubs who were saturated with sugar plum sweetness. Young dancers all over northern Nevada gave two performances of one of the world’s most popular fairy-tale ballets in John Ascuaga’s Nugget’s Celebr...

Review: Trans-Siberian unleashes urge to rock out with Chris...
If I wasn’t in the Christmas spirit before Friday night, I certainly am now. Tran-Siberian Orchestra’s show Friday at the Reno Events Center set a holiday tone for me that I never thought was possible through heavy metal/rock opera. All throughout the two-and-a-half-hour concert, I kept thinking to myself that I would never be able to hear “Carol of the Bells” or “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” in the same way  again, and it’s a refreshing thoug...

Tess Dusich pleaded with her mother, Lesa, to dance the part of Clara in the upcoming Reno Dance Company (better known as RDC) Productions’ performance of “The Nutcracker.” Lesa, an experienced dancer herself, was nervous about letting her 13-year-old carry such a prominent part that would require her to keep up her strength through both lengthly acts. “My favorite part is just being able to be graceful about it,” Tess said. “I like the storyl...
