Echo Valle Road at the Nugget, winery show tickets on sale

A sound new to locals will grace the stagebar lounge at the Pahrump Nugget this weekend.

Echo Valle Road, otherwise known as ‘EVR,’ plays your favorite songs from back in the 50’s up to the current hits of the new millennium.

The band is Tony Valle’s brainchild and he is the founder and leader. In the 70s, Valle broke away from a former group and hand-picked his own musical troupe forming his own handpicked musical troupe.

Other members include Jordan “Jo” Hudson, who performs vocals, plays bass, guitar and keyboards and is the heart of the band.

Gil Santini performs vocals and plays guitar. He was barely out of high school when the band first formed, Gil was nevertheless Tony’s only consideration for guitarist.

Angus “Shay” Goodman sings and plays drums and other percussion instruments. Goodman is EVR’s newcomer. He is the youngest member of the band.

The music begins at 8 p.m. both tonight and tomorrow night.

The HUBB will also feature a new band beginning at 8:30 p.m. Aug. 29. Van and the Mannequin Band will play on the patio. The group will be joined by local musician Derek Jordan for a special performance. There is no cover charge.

The show is one night only. Tickets are on sale now for $15 each. Gates will open at 6 p.m. Call 727-1776 to make reservations, especially if you are attending with a group.
