On May 2, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood is set to perform at the 96-year-old historic lodge, recently purchased by the Parish Entertainment Group. "It's awesome we're getting such a big name to start," said Nicole Beck, lodge manager. "This night will be a big shebang, but it will be one of many to come with future events." Surrounded by the Plumas National Forest, the lodge features a music venue, full-service restaurant, Western-themed bar, lodging and camping/RV options. May 1 is the official debut showcasing a free show by Lonesome Locomotive with Mojo Green. There will also be a solo set beforehand by Josh Clark of Tea Le, af Green. " The Chris Robinson Brotherhood made its debut in 2011. The band is currently touring in support of its latest release, "Phosphorescent Harvest." Esteemed by Rolling Stone as "quirky, trippy, soulful and downright magnetic," it's the band's third full-length studio album for Silver Arrow Records: "We've created a piece of rock 'n' roll here," Robinson stated on the group's website. "People can look to us and rest assured the genre is alive and well." The Brotherhood's lineup lists Robinson, Adam MacDougall (also of the Black Crowes) on keyboards, drummer Tony Leone, Mark "Muddy" Dutton (of Burning Tree) playing bass and Neal Casal strumming guitar. The lodge was originally built "It's awesome we're getting such a big name to start. This night will be a big shebang, but it will be one of many to come with future even ts.

THE WAGON The wagon with the missing rubber rim Has stayed with me since I was only two, And though the image now is very dim, Recurring flashes keep it always new. The older boy was pulling asI rode; And as his pace increased, I clung with fear, And I, a wide-eyed, bouncing baby load, Felt lost without a brake or bar to steer. So when I put my arm beneath a wheel, The ragged wheel without the rubber rim, The shocking pain I felt, I still can feel; It shot throughout my dragging, bleeding limb. With that, I learned to ride the giddy ride And let the one empowered steer and guide. Salvatore (Sam) Catalano June 15, 1996 BE HEARD Don't sit back and let others do the talking for you.
