Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul are on stage in the South Shore Room at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe, for one show only, on Saturday night, Dec. 8. “Little” Steven Van Zandt, a founding member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, brings his high-energy rock and soul band to Tahoe for the first time ever.
Van Zandt began his musical career with New Jersey’s Ashbury Jukes before hitting it big with Springsteen and company. He is also a songwriter, arranger, music producer, TV producer, Director, TV and film composer, social activist, teacher and actor. Any fan of the hit HBO series “The Sopranos” will fondly remember his character Silvio Dante, Tony Soprano’s loyal consiglieri throughout the seven seasons of the Emmy Award winning show. Van Zandt is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul are on the road with their Soulfire TeachRock Teacher Appreciation Tour. The landmark live tour will benefit The Rock and Roll Forever Foundation’s TeachRock program. Established by Dr. Van Zandt (he received an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts Degree from Rutgers University), the Foundation creates education materials that use the history of popular music to create engaging, multicultural lesson plans for history, social studies, language arts, music, and science classrooms, all of which are available to educators at no cost.
This marks the first-ever rock tour specifically geared toward addressing this crucial societal need. At each stop of the tour, The Rock and Roll Forever Foundation is hosting free TeachRock Professional Development Workshops, with educators who attend also receiving a complimentary ticket to that evening’s concert.
Area teachers can register at www.teachrock.org/tour. Teachers who register for the workshop also receive free guest tickets to the show at Harrah’s Tahoe on Dec. 8 in the South Shore Room. Show time is 7:30 p.m.
