North Lake Tahoe, with its mountain-top amphitheaters, casino stages and homey lounges is one of the premier destinations for musicians and audiophiles alike. In Nevada, the Crystal Bay Club & Casino is a nationally recognized venue, showing regular acts that have included Umphrey’s McGee, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and the Eric McFadden Trio. These and other esteemed artists also find their ways into some of our smaller bar and restaurant venues, providing acoustic ambiance at Jakes on the Lake, music on the showroom floor at the Tahoe Biltmore and evening energy with live music at Cottonwood Restaurant on the hilltop in Truckee.
During the summers, North Lake Tahoe comes alive with regular outdoor concerts and festivals. Settle down with a picnic and vino at Commons Beach on Sunday nights or on Kings Beach on Friday nights. Go to the valley for concert series featuring rock, jazz and blues in Squaw Valley. Enlighten your eardrums and your eyeballs with music and art during Lake Tahoe Summerfest at Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village, Nevada.
