Live at Lakeview: J Ras & The Higher Elevation, Taking Root
August 29 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Live at Lakeview concludes with J Ras & The Higher Elevation, Taking Root
From the hills of Northern California, J Ras has been turning heads and opening minds across the nation with his uplifting music and high-energy stage show, having toured with the Vans Warped Tour. His band seamlessly blends modern roots-reggae with classic hip-hop and dancehall. J Ras & The Elevation recently released a new single and music video “Crash Down,” filmed at Lake Tahoe. Taking Root brings a local flavor to reggae music, as the group is based in South Lake Tahoe. Taking Root plays popular reggae covers in addition to orginal music. Current members are EJ Hixenbaugh on drums, Derek Zalewski on bass, Miki Rae on vocals and ukulele and Dylan Long on Stratocaster guitar. Miki Rae also will perform a solo set. The order of the evening will be peace, positivity and good vibes — a fitting way to close another season at Live at Lakeview.
