CONCERT LINEUP

JUNE 7: PETER JOSEPH BURTT & THE KING TIDE

We're opening the season with a bang. Come out and join us for a wonderful night on the lawn outside PJ's at Gray's Crossing. We expect it to be a packed house and a lovely evening as the Peter Joseph Burtt & The King Tide kick off our Summer Concert Series. Peter Joseph Burtt is a lifelong drummer and singer/songwriter. His music draws from many sources to inform his music and chronicle the years he spent living and studying with master musicians of Africa. Much of his music is played on traditional instruments, notably the lute like Kora and the Mbira or thumb piano. Songs are also transposed for the guitar.

JUNE 14: THE GOLD SOULS

The Gold Souls are bringing the driving grooves of funk, the rich textures of soul, and the compelling storytelling of the blues to the Northern California scene and beyond. Drawing from a wide range of influences and experiences, they deliver captivating lyrics and fresh arrangements over a vintage sound. Led by the dynamic Juniper Waller, the group is made up of young talent hailing from the Bay and Sacramento areas. With Darius Upshaw on guitar, Alex Severson on the keys, Billy D. Thompson on the drums, and Avery Jeffry on bass, each member has a hand in writing and song composition, making The Gold Souls a truly collaborative effort. The Gold Souls burst on the Sacramento music scene in early 2017, and are swiftly becoming one of the most promising new talents in the area.

JUNE 21: SNEAKY CREATURES

Sneaky Creatures is a mischievous alt-gypsy swing septet from Kings Beach, CA, and they have been creeping into the North Lake Tahoe music scene with their unusual blend of rock, jazz, and dixieland funk.

JUNE 28: BOOT JUICE

A band that refuses to be locked into a single genre, Boot Juice finds a sense of freedom in their ability to float from bluesy rock’n’roll to progressive bluegrass and back. Inspired by the likes of Railroad Earth and soulful harmonies of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Boot Juice curates a sound that is uniquely their own, resulting in a layered and dynamic live performance. Boot Juice has been kickin' around the west since 2017, leaving audiences happy, and dance floors sticky. The 7-piece band features electric and acoustic guitars, three vocalists, bass, drums, trumpet and alto saxophone. The band has its heart in Americana songwriting, with a rock’n’roll delivery that gets crowds moving. Boot Juice plays music that will attempt to bring you to the street corner, the river side, or the open highway.

JULY 5: DEAD WINTER CARPENTERS

Since forming in 2010, California-based Dead Winter Carpenters has gained a reputation for steadfast touring, heartfelt performances, and authentic Americana. Portland Metronome puts the quintet “at the forefront of a youthful generation trying to redefine what string music is and what it can do.”

JULY 19: JELLY BREAD

Jelly Bread has risen from Reno/Lake Tahoe area favorites into a nationally- touring, powerhouse quintet that delivers a high-energy, chameleonic playlist all over the United States. Jelly Bread’s distinct style is identified by a blend of desert twang meeting the urban tones of funk and rock. Exceptional songwriting and storytelling interlaced with four part harmonies, intricate “in-the-pocket” drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks, tasty talkbox, “take-’em-to-church” organ come together into a sound that is downright appetizing.

JULY 26: CAITLIN JEMMA

Indie musician and singer-songwriter Caitlin Jemma speaks for the multitudes on her celestial new disco-folk album, True Meaning, out September 17th on American Standard Time Records.

AUGUST 2: ROGUE

Rogue is Truckee-Tahoe's own all female soulful grunge rock band. The musicians of Rogue have been growing together over the last 10 years, performing as members of rock cover band, Burning Nylon. The lull in live music over the past year provided the opportunity to develop a new direction in Rogue, with the distorted grunge rock sound you all know and love, complimented by the soul of 10 years of performance experience, chemistry and friendship.

AUGUST 9: SCOTT PEMBERTON O THEORY

Infectious and inventive dance music. Funky, surfy, rock propelled by Scott's virtuosic guitar playing. If James Brown, Dick Dale and Jimi Hendrix planted a fruit tree in portland, this sound might have fallen off.

AUGUST 16: COBURN STATION

Truckee-based band, Coburn Station, was formed in 2012 and its members bill their music as 'Mountain Rock'. It most certainly is rock n’ roll, although not of any particular flavor. It’s a mix of blues, folk and psychedelia that speaks to different regional influences. It’s the product of a resort town, a 'mountain town'—and like its creators and so many others who visit and live in Truckee—the music has roots elsewhere.
