A female singer often compared to Mick Jagger and a West African afro-fusion orchestra highlight Live at Lakeview’s diverse and tasteful 10-week lineup. The third-annual Thursday evening summer concert series at Lakeview Commons — the intersection of Lakeview Avenue and Highway 50 in South Lake Tahoe – is from June 26 to Aug. 28. The shows are free. The series is sponsored in part by the online live entertainment magazine Tahoe Onstage, which will provide weekly previews, videos, reviews and photos.
Live at Lakeview
Scott Pemberton, Aug. 21.
Presented by On Course Events, Live at Lakeview has a free bike valet, a beer and wine garden, food services and almost as many Tahoe vendors as notes Scott Pemberton can play in a song. The Lakeview Commons is a park and amphitheater which overlooks Lake Tahoe. It was built with funds from a proposition passed by California voters. Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, which plays July 31, is a New York City band fronted by a high-engery, singer Arleigh Kincheloe, who is backed by a seven-piece funk and R&B group. For audio of the band’s September 2012 performance at Whiskey Dick’s Saloon, click HERE, courtesy of Travis Souza. Kaa Pow’s By All Means Band will perform July 24. A drummer from Ghana, Kaa Pow leads a Denver-based afro-fusion orchestra. The series opens with a local flavor. Peter Joseph Burtt, a former Africa resident who lives at Kings Beach, will play his world soul music on a 26-string kora at the June 26 opener. His band includes members of the North Shore group Mama’s Cookin.’ Led by trumpeter Chris Sanchez, South Lake Tahoe’s Lavish Green celebrates its 19th year with a July 3 performance. Lakeview Commons is a Fourth of July weekend hub, so that show could have the greatest attendance of the series. Tracorum (July 10) is a San Francisco R&B band comprised of all-star players from various groups. Randy McAllister (July 17) is a blues-based player from Texas, a little bit country. California’s 40 Watt Hype (Aug. 7) is another large ensemble with a horn section that plays Latin soul. Mojo Green (Aug. 14) is a large funk group from Reno on the verge of busting on to the national stage. The Scott Pemberton Trio (Aug. 21) from Portland, Ore., features the talented, unique guitarist. The series concludes Aug. 28 with Rocker-T, a reggae artist from Oakland. “We’re super excited to share the lineup for the third season of Tahoe’s favorite event series,” On Course Events owner Rob Giustina said. Concertgoers should be cognizant of the “Meter Men” and the Harrison Avenue Project. Those are not band names, it is parking enforcement and a construction crew that is renovating the neighborhood. At the first three shows, parking officials will sell $40 season passes to local residents. Free parking is available across the street at the South Lake Tahoe Recreation Center. Cycling and walking to the shows is encouraged, as well. The bike valet service is free.
