Friday, September 21, 2018, The Tom Rhodes Band, 7:30 pm, Boathouse Theatre at Valhalla. Tickets
Before you hear Tom Rhodes’s voice, you feel it - like a left jab to the jaw and familiar feeling washes over you: Have I heard this before? Then, a split-second later, comes the power-punch: the words - direct, poetic, timeless, true. Rhodes is a songwriter with a voice that is raspy and soulful, like Ray LaMontagne or a young Van Morrison. Rhodes was also a contestant on Season 9 of The Voice.

Whether you are dashing up to Lake Tahoe for a quick weekend getaway, camping out or renting a cabin for a week, or you live in the region, the Valhalla Art, Music & Theatre Festival at the Heller “Valhalla” Estate hosts northern California and northern Nevada’s premier and most eclectic arts festival, featuring entertainment for literally everyone. Valhalla, a hidden Lake Tahoe treasure, is located on the Lake’s southwest shore three miles from South Lake Tahoe’s many hotels and restaurants and is walking and biking distance to several campgrounds including Fallen Lake Campground, and Camp Richardson.
The Valhalla Art, Music & Theatre Festival, now in its 39th year, is a total departure from the showroom and amphitheater shows offered by the casinos. The Festival offers a diverse array of entertainment from family-friendly musical and dramatic theatre to concerts with music from all genres, internationally touring artists, and the very best in local and regional acts, comedy improv, fine art shows and workshops, and children’s art and drama camps.
Valhalla Art, Music & Theatre Festival concerts and productions will take place in one of Valhalla’s three grand historic venues—the Grand Hall, with its massive 20-foot tall stone fireplace and walk-in hearth, it seats 120; the Grand Lawn, lush green grass that flows out from the Great Hall and seats 400; and the restored Boathouse Theatre, a stunningly unique arced space that was restored in the late 1980s with the support and vision of the famed Dr. Leo Buscaglia that seats 164.
The Heller “Valhalla” Estate is one property on the Tallac Historic Site, a group of historic estates built in the late 1800s and early 1900s by wealthy west coast timber barons and captains of industry as summer homes. Now owned by the United States Forest Service, the Pope, Baldwin, and Valhalla properties are operated by local nonprofit organizations, and are preserved and restored to create a stretch of Lake Tahoe shoreline frozen in time. Visitors enjoy interpretive features, restored buildings, museums, and wonderful beaches. Located next door to Camp Richardson, one of Tahoe’s longest operating resorts with a small hotel, cabins, campground, a general store, ice cream parlor, and the popular Beacon Grill, Valhalla is a quiet haven for exploration, picnicking, beach time, and the best arts entertainment offered in the Tahoe Basin.
