What’s a summer in Lake Tahoe without getting Slightly Stoopid? The SoCal reggae stalwarts will join Don Carlos, Pepper and Common Kings at Harveys Outdoor Arena on Saturday, June 13.

It will be a full night of positivity, as music starts at 5 p.m. Early bird tickets are $39.50 and go on sale Friday, March 13.

For Harveys, it’s the eighth date announced for the 2020 Summer Concert Series, as Kenny Chesney and Michael Franti team up on July 2-3, Rascal Flatts plays July 11, Old Dominion performs July 17, Phish returns July 21-22 and it’s Dierks Bentley on Aug. 15.

Slightly Stoopid has been around since the mid-1990s when Sublime’s Bradley Nowell signed founding  members Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald to his Skunk record label while they were still in high school.

“We’ve been working a long time and not slowing down. We’re happy to have that longevity,” said Ryan “RyMo” Moran, who became the band’s drummer in 2003. “We’ve always been a road band. For us, that’s what we live for, just getting on the road and seeing the country, seeing the world and going with the flow.”

When Slightly Stoopid first emerged on the reggae scene they toured regularly with Hawaii-based Pepper. In 2018, that pairing was on tour together for the first time in a decade. They visited Lake Tahoe that year.

“They’re like second brothers to me,” RyMo told Tahoe Onstage in 2018. “It’s nice to be back with them now. We’re stoked. It’s a good vibe.”

Eye to eye and irie: Don Carlos at Tahoe.

Another connection is Don Carlos, an old-school Jamaican artist. He performed as a guest on Slightly Stoopid’s latest studio album, “Everyday Life, Everyday People.”

Carlos offers conscious, uplifting music with positive vibrations.

“Music is music,” he said following a Lake Tahoe appearance. He noted, however, that he’s not one for the “gangster lyrics” that some reggae groups have drifted toward over the years.

Like Slightly Stoopid, Common Kings hail from Southern California. The band’s debut album, “Lost in Paradise,” was nominated for a Grammy Award two years ago.

A sign that summer is here and hopefully that some degree of normalcy is returning, Town Staff hung the flower baskets along Main Street this morning. A nice touch to beautify downtown and make Gardnerville feel like home.
