The Reno Blues Society will hold its annual veteran’s benefit dance and returns to the familiar military theme of M*A*S*H B*A*S*H set for a great new venue on Saturday, Nov. 6.
Featuring two local blues bands, Trippin’ King Snakes and Mudd Bonz, military or other costumes are encouraged as there will be costume contests between band change overs on the stage. Tickets are $25 and available at www.renobluessociety.org or at Recycled Records, Melting Pot or Hippies Pipes and Incense.
Military vehicles will be on display in the West parking lot (first lot off exit 4) with easy access to the convention center. RBS members with dues being currently paid get a $5 rebate at the door with their ticket. This is the 27th year the RBS has raised funds for local veterans’ organizations, only missing last year due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Headlining this year’s event is a popular band from South Lake Tahoe, Mudd Bonz, with Dennis McMasters serving as lead vocalist and harmonica player. Opening are blues and blues-rock band Trippin’ King Snakes with lead singer David Warner and guitarist Mick Clarke.
Doors will open at 6:00pm with music from 6:15 or so to 10:30 or a little after. Sponsors include the Ramada Inn and Allegra Printing. A block of rooms has been reserved at Boomtown for those who want to stay and not drive home. There will also be a special room rate for MASH BASH attendees. Just contact Boomtown at 345-6000 and mention RBS’ MASH BASH for the special room rate.
