No Rx needed: Nahko and Medicine for the People deliver
Photographer’s notebook: For a dainty little sweet girl, HIRIE has a powerhouse voice. The opener at the Friday, June 30, reggae show at the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys gave out nothing but pure love. She was accompanied by a great band and horn section. Collie Buddz was next and he kept the vibes flowing with a lot of energy, which sparked up the crowd. Collie brought out the horn players from HIRIE, making it feel like a family vibe. A setting sun illuminated the stage. Dj Mackle between sets was a nice touch. For me, Nahko and the Medicine People stole the show. Not that Rebelution didn’t deliver — it did just that. It was my first time seeing Nahko and they won me over as a new fan. Nahko finished a song in spoken word, he played keys and guitar. He also brought out HIRIE for an awesome duet. Amid a beautiful sunset, Rebelution, the headliners, played to a packed house. The people who came out made the best gumbo salad ever: All kinds of music lovers enjoyed the show. Folks danced and sang along to all the words of Rebelution’s many hit songs. The no-nonsense stage and lighting for the guys was epic. They put on a outstanding show for the Tahoe crowd. Good vibes were had 🙂
