“Good music, good vibes, good times!”

Live at Lakeview: Week 2 opened up with Tracorum, a self described Rock’n’Soul/Rhythm’n’Blues band from San Francisco, California.  I loved their blend of rock and the south:  they had a little bit a of a New Orleans feel to them in certain songs.

American Jubilee was the headliner for week 2 at Lakeview Commons.  They are an Americana band that features rearranged traditional Americana music and originals that draw inspiration from that same vein by blending various American roots styles, including country, roots-rock, bluegrass and blues.  This past Thursday their unique brand of Americana had a large crowd amassed on the sand swaying to the jams.

American Jubilee is headed up by Brian Lesh and some of the members are also featured in the Terrapin Family Band, the house band for TXR (Terrapin Crossroads) in San Rafeal.  Brian and his brother Grahame, who fronts the Terrapin Family Band, are sons of legendary Grateful Dead bass player Phil Lesh.

Live at Lakeview takes a break this week for 4th of July celebrations but returns on July 11th with Native Melodies, a live Talking Heads cover band.

As always, Live at Lakeview is a free community event.  Check out free music here in Tahoe South every Thursday from 4:30-8:30 PM at Lakeview Commons from June 20th-August 29th.  Please ride your bike and utilize the free bike valet or find plenty of parking at the SLT Parks and Recreation Department on Rufus Allen Blvd.  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 see all the photos from weeks 1 and 2 at Live at Lakeview via this link.  You can find my weekly wrap ups, photos and previews of the next concert all summer long here and on Tahoe South.
