Northstar Session back at favorite Tahoe venues

Lake Tahoe Action

Northstar Session has four Truckee shows in three days.

Contrary to what you might think, the band Northstar Session is not from Tahoe. The rootsy folk rock trio is from Los Angeles.

However, the band frequents the Tahoe-Truckee area and we even spotted the guys catching a recent Big Head Todd and the Monsters show.

Northstar Session plays four shows this weekend, two at the resort Northstar California, one at Cottonwood Restaurant and one in the Bar of America.

The band coalesced in 2007 when singer-songwriter Matt Szlachetka moved from the East Coast to LA, when he joined drummer Kane McGee and keyboardist Dave Basaraba.

The band has three records, and#8220;New Prehistoric Times,and#8221; and#8220;Winter Collectionand#8221; and and#8220;Late Bloomer.and#8221; It appeared on the NBC program and#8220;Parenthood.and#8221;

Singing in three-part harmony, Northstar Session has been compared to Crosby, Stills and Nash, Wilco, The Band, Travis, Band of Horses and Dawes.
