The B-52’s just celebrated their 35 anniversary as a band. Can you believe that? Kate is older than my mother and let me tell you, she is still rockin’ the love shack. While it took a little while for Fred to loosen up on stage, by the end of the set he was movin’ and a groovin’ with the best of them. I haven’t danced that much since my birthday party!
The Montbleu Outdoor Events Center was the perfect venue for their show as well. I’m loving their set up: a huge grass filled lawn with plenty of room for all the patrons to dance and move about (no chairs!) and even better, Lagunitas on tap!
Although KC hasn’t aged quite as gracefully as Kate and Fred, KC and the Sunshine Band was still a killer show. He was wonderfully self-deprecating, joking that once upon a time he was “today’s Justin Beiber.” He had a full band backing him and 4 gorgeous ladies who kept the dance moves going through multiple costume changes. It was the perfect warm-up for the B-52s: one song in and the entire audience was already shakin’ their groove thang.
You can see all my photos from the B-52s set via this link and from KC and the Sunshine band via this link. All of my photos from this summer’s outdoor concert series at both Montbleu and Harvey’s Lake Tahoe will be posted up on the Visit Lake Tahoe South page on facebook so head there to like them so you’ll get first looks!
