Live at Lakeview wrapped up their second week of the summer with a huge beach clean-up effort after this week’s event and the Tahoe South 4th of July celebrations. Thanks to the efforts of On Course Events and volunteers from SOS Outreach, they picked up 40 pounds of trash this week! Live at Lakeview is always looking for extra volunteers for their weekly beach cleanups, hosted every Monday morning at Lakeview Commons from 9:00-10:30 am. They pick up an average of 20 lbs of trash a week!
It seemed as if all of Tahoe came out to support longtime locals Lavish Green on the stage for week 2 of Live at Lakeview. Lavish Green has a long history with Tahoe South: they’ve been calling it home since July 3, 1995 and they seemed especially moved to celebrate their 19th anniversary with the community on Thursday night, profusely thanking the crowd and their sponsors for supporting them over the years.
I am SUPER excited for the return of Tracorum to the Live at Lakeview stage. Tracorum is an original Rock, Soul, and R&B band from San Francisco, CA. They opened last year and I really enjoyed their NOLA-ish feel on certain numbers. They had a nice blend of the South and it’s exciting to see them move up from an opening slot for the event to a headlining slot!
Opening for Tracorum is a band near and dear to my heart, mostly because someone I consider a good friend plays in it: The Sierra Drifters combine Americana Roots-Rock with Funk, Soul, Bluegrass and Rock-n-Roll. Longtime locals Chris Seal and Andy Hatch front the band and have also played in Tahoe together as Bison.
Check out free music here in Tahoe South every Thursday from 4:30-8:30 PM at Lakeview Commons from June 26th-August 28th. 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. As always, Live at Lakeview is a free community event. Please be aware of the following city ordinances in Lakeview Commons Park: no dogs, no outside alcohol and no smoking.
You can find my weekly wrap ups, photos and previews of the next concert all summer long here and on Tahoe South.
