Live at Lakeview, my favorite Tahoe South summer event, returns this week and I am ecstatic. I can't wait to listen to great music, eat and drink, and watch the sun go down with the rest of my community. This year, On Course Events hopes to create a series that is more interactive, has a bigger bike valet, more vendors, and a "festival feel." Also included in the event this summer is food vendors, which is fantastic!
Live at Lakeview is still looking for volunteers to keep the season rolling smoothly and the Lakeview Commons area spick and span. One lucky volunteer will win a Riviera standup paddle board donated by South Tahoe SUP. Available volunteer opportunities include beach cleanup crew, which will meet Monday and Friday mornings, the vibe squad, event crew, security, photographers and videographers. If you would like to help Live at Lakeview this summer, you may contact them directly at Liveatlakeview@gmail.com or head over to their Facebook page.
4 Piece Puzzle rocks out with groove, funk, and soul. They know how to have a good time!
Jelly Bread, voted "Tahoe's Band of the Year" but the Lake Tahoe Action in 2012, plays a blend of funk, soul and America. While I've heard the buzz about them, I haven't yet had the good fortune of seeing them live. Jelly Bread, fronted by award-winning songwriter, vocalist, guitarist and lap steel player, Dave Berry, alongside songwriter, vocalist and beast of a drummer, Cliff Porter, has had a busy year, touring the western U.S. and opening for the likes of Dumpstaphunk, Rusted Root, JJ Grey and Mofro and more.
Jelly Bread's brand of funk and soul is thoroughly steeped in a Rock-Americana style and has been described as "musically delicious."
As always, Live at Lakeview is a free community event. Check out free music here at Tahoe South every Thursday from 4:30-8:30 pm at Lakeview Commons from June 20th-August 29th.
The proceeds of all sales of alcohol from the beer garden support the series and I encourage you to either imbibe in the garden or make a donation in one of the donation boxes around the Commons Area on the night you attend.
You can find weekly wrap ups, photos and previews of the next concert all summer long here on Tahoe South.
