It was a party for a purpose. Saturday night’s Music is Medicine concert at Crystal Bay Casino was a benefit for the High Fives Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides a safety net for the mountain action-sports community. Local bands provided the entertainment, with Groove Foundry, Peter Joseph Burtt & the King Tide, Disco Terrorist, Drop Theory and the Serina Dawn Band taking the stage. Congertgoers danced the night away, all for a great cause.

Tahoe Onstage photographer Clare Foster captured the scene: “Music is Medicine was, in a word, medicinal. To see the Tahoe community come together to support the High Fives — purchase raffle tickets, groove to the music and show the love was more than just another Saturday night — it was heartfelt and heart full. The musicians gave it their all and sounded fantastic. When the show finished, the rain had stopped. It was a perfect evening.”
