Tahoe Onstage

TAUK, pictured at its first appearance at the High Sierra Music Festival in 2016, will return in 2019.

Dispatch has been added to the top of the bill for the 2019 High Sierra Music Festival.

The jam trio had just five shows announced for this summer. High Sierra is the sixth and only one on the West Coast.

Steel Pulse, Manic Focus, Pnuma (Live), Too Many Zoos, TAUK and Natalie Cressman also have been added to the lineup for the July 4-7 festival in Quincy, California.

In addition, Stanton Moore and Skerik reunite as the Emerald Quintet featuring Scott Metzger, Robert Walter and Chris Stillwell in celebration of the 20th “emerald” anniversary of their first JazzFest performance, and John Kadlecik brings his “Fellowship of The Wing” project featuring Jay Lane, Reed Mathis, and Todd Stoops; a pair of sure-to-be reminisced sets. Guatemalan songstress Gaby Moreno and funky-blues-rock rowdies Andy Frasco and the U.N. have also been added to the lineup.

Umphrey’s McGee, Greensky Bluegrass, Jim James, Galactic, The Marcus King Band and The New Mastersounds along with many other bands have already been announced.
